It’s hot. It’s starting out about 74. Yesterday it peaked at 88 on the deck. We’re h0ping for a bit of a thunderstorm, but more because it’s been dry than because we think it will make it cooler. It’ 85 on the deck at 2:00 PM. Doesn’t seem so bad because the wind it blowing, but yesterday it wasn’t, and it was a killer.
Saw the first katydid on the bathroom window last night. I think there are five instars, and this looked like maybe fourth, about a third the length of a mature katydid. They probably like the hot weather. Hope we have a lot of them this fall.
