It’s blazing hot here in Eastern Pennsylvania. Yesterday, the temperature read 100 degrees on the thermometer and today will be much the same but more humid. I hope a thundershower will arrive this afternoon. The much needed rain would awake the wilted flowers and the crisp grass which now appears rather brown than green.
