The Diamondbacks start a home stand the 27th against the Phillies then the Giants. Chase Field is a very nice park, air-conditioned.

Yes,I've been to Chase field for DB games. My parents are huge fans.
It's amazing to me to see a huge,AC cooled stadium. Growing up in CO,that really wasn't an issue. Heavy snow,now that could be an issue in the spring and fall.

It's been quite dry at my house, but we are at 1.61" of rain and counting!!! Very much needed! I sprayed my tomato plants Friday night and had I not it probably wouldn't have rained. I'll do another preventative spray tonight but well worth it!

It has been really dry here. thankfully we got a nice shower this past week, but last night we drove two hours to a tiny place called Byhalia... anyone heard of it? tiny! (to pick up a cultivator for our ingersoll tractor for the corn) and they were still flooded from a recent storm... we saw mud covering fields of soybean, water still out of ponds, out of creek, covering fields, a mud line foot up the trees, shrubs and vegetation all the debris floated to the edges of the fields and up on the roads..... oyvey! I felt really bad for them.

The hottest temperatures of summer are on the way, and almost the entire U.S. will be sweltering for the next few days.

A massive “heat dome” is settling in over the central United States, which means unlikely cities like Omaha, NE; Des Moines, IA, and Pierre, SD will experience temperatures around the 100s and heat indices of more than 110.

The culprit is a massive high-pressure system forming at exceptionally high altitudes that acts like a lid on a pressure-cooker, forcing hot air back down to the surface, where it gets even hotter.

The Midwest and Southeast are beginning to feel the effects Wednesday, and the East Coast and Atlantic Seaboard will start to bake from Thursday through the weekend.
By Thursday afternoon, the heat index, which calculates how hot it feels, will exceed 100 degrees from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico, and from the Rocky Mountains east to the Atlantic Ocean.

Northeastern cities like New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, will see indices in the high 90s.

Lows will fall into the 70s at night, which won't offer a lot of relief.

yep... it is hot and I have been sweltering everyday just trying to get normal stuff done in the garden. tonight we picked 8 buckets of beans and I didn't finish. that was 1/2 of them... I don't know how I am going to get them all picked in this weather. I have a market tomorrow night... I can't pick while I am gone and Friday is 94>.. whoo whee. I might have to toss them if they get too big from the heat.

Ugh, I forgot my seedlings outside today and whoa were they crispy when I got home from work. The stems were totally fried and I doubt they'll make it. Maybe no tomatoes this fall. It gets up to 113 this week. Ugh.

Batten down the hatches north coasters!

"CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen said parts of Washington and Oregon could see gusts of up to 80 mph near coastal ranges Thursday."

Talking about weather:
I mover to Southwest NC about 15 days ago and last Saturday we got the tail end of hurricane Matthew. Probably we had about 15 to 17 inches of rain, .... flooding. No wind destruction. Just flooding. Few dams on Lumber river broke making a bad situation worse. Not only the creeks were flooding , even water from the river over flew its banks.
But not serious damage other than electric sub stations in our area went under water. We got the power back after 5 days. The land is so flat around here that hardly anything flows.

it has been raining here since the beginning of september. seems like only a handful of days where it hasn't rained. i am falling further behind on outdoor tasks that need to be done before the snow starts. we might have a bunch of snow this winter.

A new weather sat went into orbit and it's very cool.
