That's literally how it's been for us here. This week is a bit better (high 80s) but the humidity is still there. There's been no rain. Indianapolis (hour south) has a water ban in effect, and most of the state has a burn ban. My hard is brown.
So far no water ban here, but there is a burn ban with $2000 fine in the county. Doesn't include grills, although what idiot would grill in this weather...(okay, I have, twice...).
Also I ordered some plants maybe a month ago and they happened to come just now, so I did a lot of landscape work this past week. I drank a couple of gallons of water a day and popped electrolyte pills (usually reserved for runs or bike rides of 1 hour+) like candy to keep going. And now I have to water the plants daily because they don't have a root system, it's dry and hot and they're needy. I'm going to lose about $200 worth of bushes and flowers if we end up with a water ban...
