How different that is than here. Finally some relief last night and
today though - down into the 60F range overnight. Wells are going dry
in this area, I planted 25 Bald Cypress trees in Spring of '04 and
lost most of those now. A four year old Redbud tree is showing stress.
We got very few peaches from the orchard, and apples and pears just
aren't filling out like they should. And it's not even August.

This particular area is on the edge of the Kansas plains plateau, and
I'm told it is like the bow of a ship - the weather events seem to
break around it.

What a bad world we live in.
When I left work in Amsterdam, a heavy thunderstorm was pooring all
it's rain over the city.
We only could drive some 35 M/h on the highway.
For weeks it's very wet and too cold for the summerseason.
The weatherforecast for tomorrow is even worse: water trouble is
expected - i.e. some flooding.
So I'll clean my in-house pump, in order it will do it's job tomorrow.
My garage is half below street level and our house is quite below
sealevel would you believe.
Luckily the garage only has been flooded earlier for a small part
(BGT's tyres can cope with that...)

One nice thing the BGT has passed the annual safety test, though
message was, that next year the front shocks need replacement.
Other message was worse - engine needs overhaul - main bearings rattle
and some pressure loss in cyl 3... Yeap oil consumption is quite high.
