Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

Driving across the dam a couple nights ago, you could see the Branson Showboat on Table Rock and everything had that hazy look to it.  I can see why it is called “lazy” as it was very hot that day and one did not feel like doing much of anything, especially outside.  Fortunately and unfortunately, we had a lot of rain today.  We might still get some more tonight.  There is a chance for scattered thunderstorms developing later in the day tomorrow and maybe some more after midnight and into Saturday a.m.  Sunday looks pretty good, even some sunshine possible and much less chances for rain.  Monday and Tuesday are sunny, temperatures in the mid 90s and no chances for rain.

This week has seen a pattern of the equivalent of one unit or less all morning.  Then, by noon or 1:00 p.m. they turn it up to the equivalent of two units and then three, more or less.  This runs for maybe six hours then they back it down to the equivalent of one unit for the rest of the night into the next morning.
