Hot and Humid.
It's still early morning, but it's hot outside. I think today will be a scorcher. The humidity is well up the scale. Weather Channel says a tropical storm is going to go up the East coast, and we always get the blow back from that kind of event. Warm ocean air means thunderstorms and ghastly humidity.
The propane truck came at the crack of dawn. I'd put in an order earlier than I usually do, because when I go into this next winter it's going to be with full tanks. I'm not going to get caught paying double the price if the coming winter is severe. Propane is so high I have been giving consideration to switching over to electric. The problem, of course, is that electric power here is pretty unreliable. So I might be trading one set of problems for another, more severe set of issues.
We are going to see the new Transformers movie in about an hour. The matinee is usually not crowded. My wife likes the Transformers. I primarily remember them as toys my son collected when he was a little boy. But there haven't been many good movies this summer. I hope "Rover" comes to our theater, but I doubt it will. I guess I'll wind up buying it when it comes out on DVD.
A hen appeared with 13 chicks. So far, she hasn't lost any of them. I don't need 13 more chickens. The dogs were supposed to eat the eggs but have fallen down on the job. I suspected they were sated with eggs, the hens have been laying way more than they usually do for some reason.
Should be a good day.
