I’ve Seen Rain and I’ve Seen Heat

During a week when we have been cursed by floods like we haven’t seen in decades, I have been amazed at how the heat from a few hours of sunshine, mixed with the extreme humidity have affected us.

We spend our winters in the mountains, praying for warmth, the heat of a warm fire, the fragrance of smoke as it spits it’s sparks and curls of smoke drift across the room.

 In summer, we have spent years in a drought situation, accompanied by late frost, cold weather, name the weather curse.

 This year, its been rain, rain, rain. We are 14” over the average. We have been flooded daily for a week, the 4th of July caused major damaged, it has rained almost every day, the water has no where to go, creek banks have washed way, yards, fields, gold courses are lakes, and still it rains.

 I must admit that during a few hours of sun-temperatures only in the low 80’s, the heat felt overwhelming, with the humidity so high, it was almost visible. This is not the way we usually think of heat in July. But every few decades, the weather seems to sen us an often unwanted surprise.

    Life can be very challenging!!!! and we do not know where the next challenge will come from. Are your family and home safe? What is wet this year could be dry next year. Earth’s changing weather pattern means all life must adjust.

    It sounds like you live in Wisconsin! I do…last summer the drought and this summer rain and more rain. The farmers are suffering…too much rain. Mother Earth is suffering from our poor use of what has been given to us. We can each only do our small part to sustain a good Earth. Hope things improve for you! Nicely written piece!

    I know what you mean some days. In the winter here in MN 70 degrees feels incredible. Yet in the summer, it feels cool, bordering on cold at times. It is amazing what we can get used to in a fairly short amount of time.

    It seems the weather has gone a bit crazy all over. We’re finding it ridiculously hot here in The Bahamas, but we’re also getting a very unusual amount of rain. Even had flash flood warnings a few weeks ago. Crazy!
