Always nice sunsets in ABQ.  

Nice backyard!  What turf did you use?  Did you have it installed?  I'm considering a something similar in my yard.

Thank you.  Yes, we had it installed a year ago.  It's called Synlawn, they did the concrete pavers with the turf running through them as well.  And the section behind the pool is getting done in August.

The outside temperature sensor for my digital clock sits in the shade on my patio.  I decided to take the clock outside to see if the sensor in the clock agrees with the outside temperature sensor.  Pretty close!!

Warmest part of the day is 5pm.  Probably go up another degree or two.  Headed to 106º tomorrow.

Wow, at it's only June!

We've had enough rain that the Guadalupe River that runs through Victoria has been flooded for over 2 weeks. And it's raining again. The golf course has not been dry in a while but we keep sloshing along and slipping in mud but delighted to get to play . . .

Rain always sprouts hordes of mosquitos to fight off. I've even donned a bandana across my face for a few select holes. We come home with blood stains on our clothes that I'm convinced is not all mine. I should have bought stock in mosquito spray!

And still we go back out to play some more. Played in a 3-day city championship tournament (3 different courses) over the weekend that was lift clean and place everywhere, even the fringe around the greens. The course grass and my garden are loving this extra moisture.

Sure love this game and itching to playing again.

Pun intended!!  I don't handle mosquitos very well.  When my scout troop went on our week long camp in the Cascade mountains, I came home with 60+ bites on my hands...  and a few other places!  🥴

After a week in the high 90's low 100's, the wind blew 25-40mph yesterday and we are now back in the 70's with lows in the 40's/50's for the next week.

A week of very hot 95* days and evening thunderstorms turned into a rainy day yesterday and damp cool morning.   We had 3" of rain this week and the grass will be a jungle by the time it dries out enough to cut.

To all on the West Coast going through the heat wave - stay hydrated and safe. I can't image 120* temps they're forecasting for the southwest - I know it's dry heat, but.......

Record breaking temps coming the next 10 days.

Only 97º today but the humidity is 15% and the wind is blowing 20+ mph; kind of like a blast furnace.  The temperature ramps up tomorrow for the foreseeable future... over 102º each day with forecasted highs of 112-115º over the weekend.  

I've lived here since 1970 and the highest temperature I've ever seen is 112º.

Wow, that makes me miss ABQ so much. I'm glad I got to spend a few years there.

I think my favorite view was merging onto I-40 eastbound off southbound Coors and being able to see the whole city and the Sandias from there.

It sure could be a bad year for forest and range fires.  We have never had 5 days in a row of 111 to 115º in June before.  New records will be set every day this next week.  We've had 112º before, but not until August!!
