I wish I could be a more frequent blogger. These days life is extremely busy and some days I feel like I'm hanging on for dear life! I have been posting at www.facebook.com/timsimpsontv3. So if you're a fan of Facebook, please take a moment to post.
The current weather pattern is a hot one even though we're not seeing heat records fall by the wayside. As you can imagine, that's fine with me. By all indications, it looked like the Summer of 2011 was going to be a hot one. By the time we reached June 6th, Memphis had already recorded three days of 99 degree heat! We haven't hit 99 degrees since that time. Afternoon thunderstorms have done a good job of knocking down the Summer heat.
On Tuesday, July 5th, Memphis International Airport hit 91 degrees. About an hour later the mercury had dropped to 75 degrees due to a thunderstorm forming near the airport and dumping about a third of an inch of rain. Just down the road in Southaven, MS, our WeatherNet site at SBEC registered 1.25" of rain.
In this type of weather pattern, not everyone will see a shower or storm. But if you do, it'll provide some quick and incredible relief from the Mid South Summer heat.
