Scorched Earth

I found out something new today about the truck I’ve been driving for six years. The thermostat can read out three digits.

Since there is no doubt an overload of stories and blog postings about how miserable it is outside I decided to post about a positive effect of this heat and drought.

I haven’t had to mow my lawn for a month. Since we decided that watering was nothing but a waste of water our lawn has entered into a dormant, albeit brown, stage. Some of our neighbors have automatic sprinkler systems. They are still cutting their grass, though even those yards are still a little less verdant than they’d be if we had a little rain.

Brown is beautiful.
