Here it is almost the last of July and this heat is causing the pastures to dry up. Some of the farmers in this area are already feeding had that should not be used for feed until the cold and snow is on the ground. Feeding hay is a winter thing, not what you do in the middle of July. In some pastures, the ponds are going dry and that is causing extra work because the farmers have to haul water to their livestock.
The temperature is not cooling down but staying in the hundred degree range all this week and some of next week. In the apartment complex where I live, a couple senior citizens have gotten sick because they did not want to run their electric bill up. In another part of town, an elderly lady was found dehydrated because she was in a closed apartment and did not turn her air conditioner on.
This is taking place in a small town; I can just imagine what it is like living a city with this heat.
