How Hot Is It In the Interior Right Now?

It's XtraTuf beer cozy hot.

Current weather here at 6:54 p.m., according to the Weather Underground: 88 degrees with smoke. The dog does not rejoice to go outside anymore, she just climbs into the dog box and sulks. (Having fur must suck right now.)

Thanks to a week of temps in the 80s with no rain, there is wildfire all over the place. Here's a shout out to all my friends out working wildfires: Be safe! Mojitos will be ready upon your return.

And here is hoping for some rain, soon.

Edited at 8:02 a.m., July 9:
Woke up to the sweet sounds of a strong downpour last night! Yay! Here's hoping the areas where the folks in yellow are working away got some of the stuff, too.

It's 10:02p here right now, and I'm seeing some storms around Farmers loop. All lightning, no rain. I suspect if I check the number of fires they're reporting, there'll be a few more in the morning...

Love the xtra tuf beer insulator! Shame you just have PBR in there. ;)

No rain yet. Just a few cheap little drops. But I heard that it was pouring out in the Steese area.

As for the PBR:
On sale, buddy. It was on sale. Nothing like cheap, tasteless beer on a hot day. As I always say, better no taste than bad taste. (Say, Bud Light or Coors Light or something that evil.)

(Was out of mojito fixings anyway.)

Olympia is my cheep beer of choice. We used to drink it like water in the field, when I got dragged away to Utah for trapping rodents in the desert. And I have a case of PBR in my fridge too, so I can't get too high and mighty - it's for a friend who likes the stuff, I swear! ;)

Have you considered hosing down the dog occasionally? He might appreciate it. (Tip from warmer climes. Which you are, now, too.)

Dog does not like the hose. I once tried to help her out thusly, and now, when I go to douse the garden, she backs up and watches suspiciously. So, it would devolve into chasing her around the yard with the hose, or trapping her in her dog house with the nozzle on 'spray.'

I don't want to be the crazy neighborhood lady who traps her dog in the dog box and sprays her down.
