We seem to be getting all of the hot, dry days of summer all at once. We had a whole season's worth of rain in May and June, now we are getting the whole year's worth or horribly, hot and humid. The flies are unbelievably awful and everyone is greatly appreciating their fly-masks now.
It is too hot to even play tug-o-war with them.
It's too hot for much of anything besides hanging out in the shade.
We'd all like to be out doing stuff, but standing around in a daze, hiding from the flies is about all we are managing.
