The record high temperature in the Ozark mountains of Arkansas was 120`F / 49`C in 1936. Temperatures of over 100'F are not unusual in July and August.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Greetings Ben,
Our garden is fine... it's already drought-proof because we're practical folk who go for native plants rather than those hi-falutin' inner city folk. :jumping: They won't know what to do without their lavishly flourishing water-wasting gardens.

Some of the leaves though on the trees here have been scorched though.

We've just turned the air conditioner off... just as I speak though, my wife's turned it back on! Seems she still thinks it's hot. Family and dogs all fine.

Metta,
Paul. :)

Hi Retro

Take care of your natives because they will also die in this extreme heat and lack of water. I know from painful experience.
Good to hear that the family is coping ok with the heat. I hope the change comes soon.
Give my regards to Mrs Retro and Mini-Retro.
Cheers
