The morning was cloudy today and it kept the heat close to the earth like sauna. I spent part of the day working on the home of Jilda's mom. We are trying to get it ready to sell. My dog Buddy went with me and he spent most of the afternoon lying on an air conditioning vent. After lunch the clouds moved in from the west and the sky looked angry.
A clap of thunder sent Buddy hurdling off the vent and into my lap. He doesn't "storm" well. It rained hard for a while so I had to reschedule my fishing trip until in the morning.
Tonight I'm looking out my window as the sun sets and making the horizon a magenta gray.
Tate Shaneyfelt, who is currently serving in Iraq will have a story in tomorrows' Daily Mountain Eagle. He's been writing Letters from Iraq in which he tells what it's like there. I'm posting the letters on alumni website. I mentioned this to a report from the Eagle and she thought it would be a good idea for a story.
I asked Tate what the weather was like in Iraq and he sent me a photograph of a thermometer and it was over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Yikes!!! I thought it was hot here today.
Hopefully the rain will hold off tomorrow until I've caught my limit of big honkin' bass.
