Quote of the Month

"Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, 'Never take candy from strangers.' And then they dressed me up and said, 'Go beg for it'. I didn’t know what to do! I’d knock on people's doors and go, 'Trick or treat… no thank you.'”

"-Rita Rudner-"

So far this has been a record breaking summer for heat. I’m not sure where the numbers will end up but we have had the most number of days with temps above 115, most number of days with temps above 110 and most number of nights where the temperature has not dropped below 90. When it’s all said and done we will publish the records. Some of these records may stand for a while. I’m sure all of our winter residents are enjoying their summer in the Northern part of the country and are probably pretty happy about not being here.
