    hmmm, summer ... what dismal joy that is for us in the southwest desert

    We do have water concerns here too - our water mostly comes from underground sources, fed mostly by the summer monsoons. The rest comes from the Colorado River, which tastes like warm water that has been sitting in a rubber hose for sevaral days ... yucky, to say the least ... we use that for washing and irrigation ... need to use faucet purifiers to make it suitable for drinking.

    I hope that the folk in TN will find relief from their water problems soon ... keep us posted .

    Concerning declining water supply in rapidly expanding urban areas, I heard an interesting news report on public radio about Perth, in western Australia. If I understood correctly, this part of the world is booming with population growth and construction, etc., because of Chinese and, more generally, Asian economic expansion. Situated near the Indian Ocean, Perth was nevertheless running out of drinking water! They combined two energy efficient technologies for what appears to be a success story: 48 huge wind turbines, located far north of the city, are used specifically to run a desalination plant which produces perfectly drinkable water. Arizona is not on the edge of the Pacific Ocean but if we can use pipelines for oil and gas, surely it can also be done for water.

    So far it's been a really cool summer here in Mtl.; I only used the a/c two or three times. This evening it's going down to 9 degrees Celsius. Guess I can't complain; I don't like the heat. But that's awfully cold for this time of year. Crazy stuff...

    Is that typical for Madisonville - the high temps, or is this a rarity?

    Our "monsoon" season is winding down ... but the temp continue to hover a bit over 103 every day with humidty to match. Thank goodness for A/C, Ice and chilled Ice Tea!!

    Here in Poland we have 28 Celsius degrees (82,4 Fahrenheit), the sun is shining. Quite typical for this time of year

    Exclamation the heat

    Kentucky hasn't had such a heatwave since the seventies of 1977. We had a drought
    that year, and in 1986 we had another hot drought. This year I guess will go down
    in the history books for the hottest summer and coldest winter. Last winter was almost
    as cold as some of the other states up north like New York for example. Two years
    ago another unheard of disaster happened here in November of 05. That was a
    tornado and the reminants of two hurricanes Dennis and Katrina. Here in Kentucky!
    Kentucky summers are hot but not like this! I'm hoping that it cools down next
    week. Everybody's lawn is dead as a doornail. Even the toughest weeds here can't
    take it. Their dieing in this heat.

    "I started to envy the 82 degrees and saw 28 Cel.! I imagine that the
    overnight low is about 60+degrees? That sounds a lot cooler than
    104 here in Madisonville. Today the sun is behind the clouds and has
    cooled to 95. It is still hot! It feels like Arizona outside. I had to sike
    myself out last night to stay cool. I don't have air conditioning except
    for two fans blowing me in the face to keep me cool. Ha!

    This is one of the summers that we get a bermuta high this year and when
    the west and pacific suffers an El nino we have a hot drought from it and a
    rough cold winter. This time our winter was bitterly cold with subzero
    temps that froze our water pipes and I felt like my face was froze by the
    time I got to the nearest business from home. Like the rules say about
    the electric heater to stay four feet, I had to almost hug it to stay warm
    during the day.

    Isn't this unusual weather for Mtl? How's the humidity been with those cooler summer days there? I always like to open up the house in fair weather - nothing beats the smell of fresh air after a summer of being closed up with the a/c constantly churning here.

    I'll be more than happy to send you mine . We have quite the collection of weeds after the summer rains and now lots of sunshiny days. The bougainvillas have doubled their size since spring, too. Fortunately, it's a small yard in this townhome community.

    Finally, it's snowing out here. Now I can make a snowman and start throwing snowballs

    Wow, Mat ... you are the first report of snow for this season ... lucky people that get that white fluffy stuff. We are still in the middle 80's (F) here in Arizona ... they are forecasting mid to low 70's next week, but that is always a crapshoot ... two out of every three times the weather men are wrong here ... dead wrong.

    The weather here in Madisonville is being a little crazy this fall. Last
    week I had to dress up like I was on the north pole. Today it's warm
    for this time of year. I laughed when it rained on the Veteran's parade
    yesterday. This time two years ago Madisonville suffered a tornado
    out in the southern suberbs. That's where the rich live and the country club is!
    This year the weather is just about as crazy. I think people are predicting snow
    this winter. That I will believe when I see it. It's still better than the hot temps
    we got last summer at 104 degrees. One sunday the bank sign said 105 when
    I passed by it at 6:00PM. I literaly burnt up! I hope this next summer is better.
