I think I was outside a total of three minutes yesterday. It was a good thing my daughter and I didn't go camping.
I don't think I have ever lived in a state where the tempature rose to the levels it did in South Dakota yesterday..
If you have a spare prayer, pray for the people of Mobridge, South Dakota (a town in N. Central South Dakota on the Missouri River--check out this drought map), and all people whose livelihoods have been devastated by drought. It's debatable whether this area was ever suited for agriculture, or even ranching in the first place, but some folks say this year's drought is worse than the Dust Bowl years.
We're going to the water park today to wear our daughter out, so she can get to sleep before 11 pm--maybe I can be asleep before 1 am.
