Weeks and weeks and weeks
of unending heat
and drought.:  longer it
continues, hotter
it's getting --- maybe
the early days were
to prime the mind to
thinking it couldn't
possibly get worse
(but it has, it has) ----

records falling like
dominoes, lows and
highs surpassed by the
next day's; lack of rain
becoming a joke
that is not funny
anymore --- no one's
laughing.  Ready to
crawl under a rock
and cry if we hear the

weatherman repeat
the forecast that has
been the same since time
began --- Hot.  Dry.  NO
relief in sight, in
the pattern or in
the electric or
water bills.  Going
to have to take out
a loan to pay them.

Parched earth looking skyward asking when. We have experienced many hot days in the Middle- Atlantic this season Karla. However we have received rain before it has had the chance to get ugly. Nothing like you have experienced in Texas this year. Wish I could send you a rainmaker my dear friend. Not a violent thunderstorm maker, just a rainmaker. I bid you love peace and hope for relief soon. Jon Michael

We have green grass & trees surrounding us, as it rains regularly still...I may not enjoy NJ winters what with all the snow & cold and such, but at least this summer we have been having a halfway decent one...some extreme hot days, but nothing like what you guys have had to put up with...another month to September, maybe fall will come early, at least for you...Ed

You can feel the urgency in the write and just keeps the reader in until the very end... When I looked at the title... a bit shock to see the verse is about the weather... Thanks for sharing...

God, send rain and relief, PLEASE!! (If it's any consolation, by Tuesday, according to NOAA, the high is supposed to be NEAR 100 degrees. COLD FRONT! WHEE! :/ Some cold front ... LOL I am MORE than ready for winter!! ENOGUH already!) Great write but you're right: nobody's laughing; it's not funny anymore! Well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :/
