heat wave of 2012

I just wanted to add that we did have a storm brewing but the haze was due to fires in Mannford, Ok, about 37 miles from us.
I just found out someone I know, their house burnt to the ground.
Here's another link to photos and video. Looks like California wildfires.

It has been a hot one so far. Temperatures have been in the triple digits and everything is dying. It is so hot...sounds like the beginning of a joke, but seriously it has been really hot! Saturday we got the tail end of a storm but only got a light sprinkle of rain. I was looking at the trees and they are starting to turn brown at the top. We seriously need some rain before all the trees and bushes start to die. I tried saving my tomato plants but it was a loosing battle.
Usually I'm not keen on storms living in Oklahoma's tornado alley but I really wanted to get a storm this weekend.
Here is the tail end of what we got to see. It was hazy and dark to the north and bright clear blue to the south.

Keeping up with my Olympic craze, I got some sticky notes at Anthropologie....
Cute and can't wait to use them!
