The PNW heatwave has been pushing itself east getting us into the low 90's the past few days.  I played/walked Madison Meadows and normally have no issue doing 27 holes.  The course is pretty hilly and I usually feel plenty exercised after doing so, but by hole 15 I was feeling pretty gassed.

On hole #17, after poking a tee in the ground for the par 3 iron shot, I stood up and felt dizzy 😬.  I had been drinking lots of water (even purchased a fruit punch Powerade) but at 92F, a bit more humid than normal, and no wind, it was "tap out" time.  I sat under the shade tree to rest then finished the last hole with little enthusiasm. 

A couple years ago, I experienced a minor bout of heat exhaustion while sawing logs at our community firewood bank.  I walked over to my truck to get water and pretty much had to rest on my elbows on the front seat while the dizziness and tunnel vision subsided.  It was the first time I ever experienced this. I'm told once you experience heat exhaustion you are susceptible too it... dunno?  

New respect for heat exposure... be safe out there.

Yes, Martha has had it several times, and she has to be very careful.  She takes all the precautions when temps get in the high 90's.  The Irish don't take well to high heat.

Don't be macho... stay safe!

60* this morning but clear skies.  They were way off with yesterdays forecast, we had 1.2" of rain through the day and the humidity stuck around even though the temps weren't as high.

We had a small system move through the area early evening, dropping a little rain, cooling things off, and leaving us a wild sunset. 

Looking northwest at the end of the Ruby Mountain range.  The photo dosen't really do it justice.  The entire east side of the valley (Tobacco Root Mountains) were cast in a purple-orange hue, the likes of which we'd never seen before.  River didn't seem overly impressed.

Also increased the scent of fresh cut alfalfa & sweetgrass.

Irish on my Mother's side, so that might explain it.  Now if I could only get more of that side (and less of the German side) in lucky charm bounces and breaks out on the golf course 😐.

It’s been “cooler” here the last few days, low 90s, and I’ve enjoyed it!!! I’ll take 90 over 100 any day! Sitting outside in the morning has been awesome!!!

Just checked track of Elsa, it’s going to hook (Leftie) over Tampa then right over us.  
I guess our lawn & golf course irrigation will be taken care of for a while.😱

We got 3” yesterday, and no telling how much we’ll get from Elsa this week.  Pebble Creek is already soaked.

Isn't just nuts how drenched one side of the country is and how parched the other side is?  Weather patterns seem like the old "squeeze a balloon here and it bulges elsewhere" adage.  I'm still waiting for that point where everything is in perfect harmony 🙂.

After it passes, you and the Bacon Boyz can discuss how your game would have been... just like this:

I hope not since our condo is just south of Tampa. Maybe it'll decide to take a sharp left westward and drench some of the drought stricken areas.
