Yesterday it was a record-setting 98 degrees officially, with heat index well over 100. According to some weather stations near me, the temperature topped out at 102. Honestly, I don’t think a couple of degrees one way or the other makes much difference at that temperature.
This morning it was a comparatively brisk 82 degrees out, so I mowed the lawn. I lowered the mower as far as I could without the mower stalling, because 90-plus degrees is probably going to be the norm until August or September. Shorter grass will be easier to mow, and if it turns brown on me, then it’s easier still.
