I seek approval from ATF members and suggest a grassroots movement be started that henceforth today, June 29,2012 be simply called FRYDAY. :idea: :eek: :shock: I believe it is a perfect descriptive term to describe this day in weather record-keeping and history. What yall think :?:

One of the local tv stations did that here a few years ago during a hot spell. I think the egg is about done now with today's temps. :?

Cooled down this eve after the storm passed to the south of us. Daughter lost a mountain ash tree in the heavy winds, - she lives 6 miles south of us, - we had nearly no wind & no measurable rain. It was near 95 around 3 p.m. before storm came thru, now it's about 70.

We have had our first day of 110; after a few days of near that its cooled off to 100 104. Longer range weather shows it creeping up higher . I know most of You folks normally dont see temps up to 110 or higher; and those temps are rough. Now where Dick is at, out there it really knows how to get hot.

Jim i've heard for years of frying eggs and bacon on the pavement. Never knew if it would work; as i never tried it. A guy learns a lot of neat stuff here. BTW thats a great idea calling it fryday. Now we need to come up with something catchy for the other days. :D :D

I'm thinking of "Two's-day" meaning that you take a really good nap in the middle of the day making two days out of one! :cool:

SUNDAY works perfectly fine for one of our weather days of the week. Perhaps until this heat is broken and each day seems like the last one, perhaps a 3 day week consisting of FRYDAY, DRYDAY, and SUNDAY is all we need. :idea: :?: :!: :shock: ;) :)

Yesterday, Saturday was SWELTERDAY :!: :eek: For the last several days, Corn and maters are not coming out of the rolled up or wilted stage now overnight. There is no moisture rising. I asked a few folks who have creeks on their property at the farmers market yesterday if water was flowing in them. Most said yes but "very slowly". I am surprised that towns and cities have not began water restrictions yet.
