Heat Wave - Free Clipart
Of course, what do we expect living in the desert? We are really in for it though the next week at least, with not much of a reprieve. It is 101 here today with tomorrow 105 and going into the 112 range here for the rest of the week. The poor workers out there paving our street today must be sweating buckets.
It is hot enough inside the house because we keep the thermostat set at 83 to save on the power bill. I’ve been working downstairs except for today because I wanted to clear out some files and move things to the external drive. It’s too hard to take that thing downstairs, so I use a thumb drive down there. We try to leave the A/C off up here, so its 92 right now.
Some different critters are visiting our yard, probably coming after the water I suspect. We have water pans all over the place. I thought I’d share a few pictures with you.

Of course living in the desert we’ve seen our share of snakes, but not as many as you’d expect. This year they are out all over.
This is a Bull Snake, very similar to a rattler, but with no rattles. My husband touched his tail as he slithered up under a rock in the front yard.
I don’t know what kind this is but it comes to drink on the back patio now and then and then disappears back into the desert.

Enjoy your day everyone and stay cool out there.
