Thoughts on Another Hot Monday

This is the 7-Day Forecast for the St. Louis area.
It's approximately the 17th day in a row
of an Excessive Heat Advisory.

Iced tea is my favorite drink in the summer time,
and especially this year.
The pitcher is too dark in this photo, but I wanted
to point out the green grass in the backyard.
This was taken on June 27, 2011.
Our grass now is dry & brown & non-existent.
