    Good morning everyone!

    Strong to severe storms are possible today for the parts of the Plains and Midwest.  Strong damaging winds, hail and heavy rainfall will be the main threats.

    Dangerous heat has settled into the Central U.S with heat indices of over 100 degrees for millions of folks.  Excessive heat watches and warnings are in effect.

Hey JB. It has been quiet on the blog. Sorry you didn't get any rain. We had quite a bit of rain earlier in the month but it's been dry for the past week or so. We haven't reached the triple digits but I'm guessing our heat index has. The actual temperature was 95 when I got home yesterday. It was really humid when I left for work this morning so it will be another hot day. Hey to anyone else who many be checking in. Stay cool, everyone! Take care, Margie

JB in Texas

Been kind of quiet on the blog lately. Probably the summer heat doldrums are affecting many of us. There was a lot of rain around here a few days ago, but it missed us almost completely. We just had a little spritz of showers while those near us had several inches. Getting into the triple digits this week. The older I get the hotter it seems. Hope all are doing well. JB
