The Summer Heat

So far this summer, we've had 18 days at 90 degrees or above. Here's a graph of August so far.

Last evening (08/09) we had beautiful cloud formations as a cold front passed. Though torrential rains were reported well north and east of here, we had not a drop at my location. This view (below) is facing east through the catalpa trees in our front yard. A classic cumulonimbus!

And this view (below) is facing west as the final line of storms approached. To the right of the picture (north), it's clear that someone is getting some much-needed rain. But so far this month, Farmersville stands at 0.05". That's really critically dry, especially considering the extreme heat.
