A Hot New Week
The entire Pacific Northwest is suffering under a huge heat wave affecting not only us east of the Cascade Mtns., but also the poor souls on the west, who do not generally tolerate temperatures above 90 degrees F. Well, even they are hitting the 100 degree mark.
This morning the HVAC guys came to take a look at what the job entails and left none too happy. Lots of the work will be done in the attic and with our hip -style roof, that makes things a little tight, as well as extremely hot on a good day and torturous in a heat wave. So they'll be starting work tomorrow at 6 a.m. and probably knocking off about 10 a.m. In the meantime, I have more shelves and closets to empty to give the workmen room.
The picture is of my pot at the front walkway. This was taken about three weeks ago, and now the plants are quite a bit larger, so I should take an updated one. My new back yard appears to be well established now and needs to be mowed, perhaps tomorrow morning before the heat sets in on us!
