Sandy UT is definitely in the HOT part of the country

hot sphere

A century and climbing is promised to Sandy UT for the next week with perhaps a 3 degree dip for the National Holiday.

I live in that part of the country currently labeled HOT - although not as HOT as some.  Assaults on records appear the order of the day, for each day. for a sustained period.

We have been given the possibility of a stray thunderstorm tomorrow (possibly the most expected, least likely event of the season).  June is rapidly entering the history books of passing without any evidence of precipitation.

Utah achieves its sparce grandeur by being high altitude desert receiving 10 - 12 inches of rain a year. (In my past life I was used to 120 inches as being a bare minimum.)

Last winter's snow has just retreated to the higher altitudes, leaving brilliant green evident on the lower slopes of the Wasatch Front.  Meanwhile in the valleys, grasses in abundance have become sere, inviting combustion from any dry electrical event.

Sales of fireworks to celebrate 4th of July are under way, if somewhat incongruous in this heat. Signs indicate they are not to be ignited within 150 feet of the point of sale. Cool heads might caution restraint.

I think I shall skip my tie today and defer to ice cubes and evaporative neck bands.

Sussie - you are certainly in the crispy temps. At 6pm we were still at 98. My neck is pleasantly cool with the evaporation.

I bet it will be HOT Larry. I love those mountains.

Have a great 4th and enjoy yourself.

Noah ~ the Everlasting Hills make it through anything. They are ready for your next visit. I always help my wife celebrate 4th.

Larry if only I could bottle and ship you some of the rain water from the Northeast.  It is either hot and humid or raining.

Anyway I sure hope you get some rain soon, that would make the plants happy.

 

Have a great week.

Jennifer - thanks for the offer, but then we would cease to be a desert. Thunderstorm did not eventuate. It's official ~ no rain for June.

Rebecca - our reward for eight months of mountain snow cover (some still up there if you look). Could do with a little cool today. Century plus promises are being pushed forward a day at a time. Definitely time for a little prospecting at higher (much higher) altitudes.
