THE CHANGING SEASONS – JULY 2019 – Marilyn Armstrong

The Changing Seasons, July 2019 – Our Hottest July Ever!

It’s official. This has been the hottest July in recorded weather history … 140 years worth. Not only have these been the hottest days, but they have also been the hottest nights with temperatures rarely dropping below the 80s.

I haven’t been outside much. For an asthmatic, this is bad karma. The hot, wet air makes it difficult to breathe and lacking inhalers (because I can’t afford them), being inside is a lot safer.

I did take a few pictures in the garden and of the newly repainted deck, but this hasn’t been much of a photographic month. If someone turns down the thermostat and the humidity, maybe we’ll have some breathable air. Right now, it’s like trying to inhale hot soup. Whatever that stuff is, it isn’t real air.

The newly refinished deck — which is also why there are no birds. It was time to take in the feeders until the fall. I miss my birds!

  1. Hey there! Just joined Su’s challenge and decided to visit some of the blog names that jumped out at me. (And yours did, hahahhaa – have you found intelligent human life?)

    The photos of the flowers are so beautiful. I love green spaces and in another lifetime, I’d photograph flowers upon flowers. Hopefully, Aug brings you all cooler weather.

  3. I feel for you on the humidity front — and I’m not even asthmatic. I really hope you get some cool air soon.
    Beautiful flowers; hope you can get out to enjoy them.


  4. Lovely… Blooms and deck! Looking forward to a cool front coming in tomorrow. We’ve used the air conditioner more this year and even run a fan in bedroom at night–never before. Need some rain too… Brook is drying up and the garden’s looking a bit sad. Better not complain too much–summer is always way to short. ❤


    • Mom, the weather – as usual – is a BIGLY story on the news, local and network. One of the networks had a map of the U.S. – almost all in red. They used digital branding irons to show the hottest spots. Looked liked the opening to “Bonanza”. Then, there were the plethora of “Heat Wave” stories. The usual sound bites from the usual suspects. We’ll see them again in a few months complaining about frigid weather.

      There was a lot of hot air in last night’s roundup of Democrat Prez hopefuls. They cudda used a gatorade splashdown. Bernie looked blood red at many points. I think they shudda hosed down the whole bunch of wannabees — like the city kids dancing on hot pavement.
