Mafting (adj) means hot, and often humid. Also 'mafted' as in 'I'm bloody mafted'.

You'll be telling me next that you don't know that 'siling down' means raining heavily!

As for ain't in my weather report above... I have no idea why I used it now! I've known it since I was a child, as I started to listen very intense at pop music when I was 10-11 years old. But I've never used it in any "official" context before and didn't really know how "bad" it was! But there's a meaning with everything. And I think the meaning with this was to give Mary (and perhaps someone else?) a big smile! ;-)

As for the weather, it's been very warm and sultry and I long sooooo much for a thunderstorm and a lot of rain!!!

Dry, dry, dry here in Oregon. Pretty hot, to boot. S'posed to get back into the 90s several days this week. Half the state's on fire, it seems.

So much for it "raining all the time" here in Western Oregon. Seems like this summer drought is getting to be routine.

All the plants in my garden would've died by now if it werent' for garden hoses.

Mary in Kentucky, when I was little our teacher took us all outside into the schoolyard with a spade and we all dug a hole and buried "got" (written on a piece of paper).
To this day, I sometimes re-write an entire passage to avoid using "got"

You ain't gonna believe this, but after all my whinging about how hot and dry it's been, as I write this, it's snowing outside. Madness.

This has been a very good summer for north florida pineywoods folks! There has been a great deal of rain and the drought of the past several years has been broken.

The temperatures have stayed in the low nineties instead of days and days of over one hundred. (We'eve only had a few of those so far this summer).

We haven't had any hurricanes thus far and none last year!

My fig crop was the best it's ever been and my grass is finally growing.

I still want to turn my front yard into a meadow but the homeowner's associateion won't let me!!!

The thunder showers have kept my raggedy-ass pond full and the tadpoles are plentiful...crepe mrytles, caladiums, pentas, and lantana are abundant! Dragonflies hover over the pond and the air smells like snakes! mmmmmmmmm...hg

I'm still smiling over Berit saying "ain't." We exchanged PM's, and I know she won't mind my talking about this here. Perhaps others will learn something too!

Berit speaks such good English, it's hard to tell she's not a native speaker. But I know she often mentions looking up obscure words in her dictionary.

The use of the word "ain't" is something that traditionally uneducated people use. When I was a child my teachers would often jokingly require us to pay money if they caught us using the word. Think of it like this... if Catspaw were talking to his son's teacher, he wouldn't dare use the word, but if he were talking to Paw or the Reg boys he would most assuredly use it in order to be understood.

It's used a lot in pop songs and movies, but is still considered inapproprite in educated talk or writing (except for empahsis.)

In keeping with the weather theme here, It Ain't Gonna Rain No More (3 instances of bad grammar...ain't, gonna, double negative...but I love it for emphasis.)

My little corner of KY has seen 1/2 inch of rain since June 10th, and lots of days pushing 100 degrees...the grass has died, and the sassafras and pin oaks are showing a lot of stress. How goes others in KY?

I have been POURING the water on the garden every week to save my new plantings of roses and bamboo and KY natives...good thing we live next to a river, and water consumption is not a problem here.

Just a note...a friend of mine has grown a fig tree here for several years, this year it is bearing fruit for the first time...global warming anyone?

glen2Glenn, the fires are still raging in southern Oregon; it has now passed the 1933 Tillamook Burn (which I grew up hearing about) in size. The current fire is down close to the California border; so far as I know, the redwoods in Calif. are not in danger.

bernil, I'm with you! I much prefer the cool, moist, sweet air of southeast Alaska to the over-processed stick-your-head-in-the-sofa-cushion breathing stuff they have in so many places this time of year 'in the lower 48'.

Hotter than heck here in New Brunswick, Canada and I don't mean the weather. We've got farm after farm lining up to donate hay to send to the drought stricken Prarie Provinces but the SOB federal politicians in Ottawa can only find fifteen rail cars for transort (while donating millions and millions of relief dollars for overseas). Our weather this summer has been a great growing season and we have enough hay to get "the west" through this but the feds are moving so slow that many western farmers have already had to sell off their livestock at bankrupting prices.

Re the weather... we're holding high 20's to low 30's with drenching rains at least every week to ten days. A perfect summer so far.

Things ain't normal here in the middle of Sweden and I ain't normal either... We've had warm weather all summer except from a few days with the more common cold winds from the fjelds. As for me I don't like it and don't function when it's warm so I've had problems... But I guess most people have been very happy! When I say (too) warm I mean everything over 70 degrees! And someone here talked about 100 degrees!

When I say I have problems I have to admit they are not as big now as they've been as I've bought a car with AC - it has changed my life a lot and I'm also glad my flat is quite cold!

Most of Australia is actually in a pretty serious drought right now. The bushfire season is just around the corner too.
How're the fires in the USA now? Haven't heard anything on the news about them lately. Are they out, or have the local news outlets just decided they've lost saleability?

Colorado is DRY, DRY, DRY. We've had a little more rain and a couple of thunderstorms in the last few weeks, which has been great, and the fires are pretty much out -- but the drought is still very bad. For those of you who get tired of looking at rain, Colorado has an average of 300 days of bright sunshine a year. Generally, it's a fabulous climate. But we're suffering this year, after four years of below-average snowpack, so all our reservoirs are low anyway. Crops are dead or dying, watering is restricted all over the eastern half of the state, and probably the west too. There's nothing I would love more than the sound and sight and feel of a good, hours-long, hammering rain.

I am soooo jealous of all the postings that mention moisture in the forecast. Here in the Northeast Piedmont of North Carolina, we are in the midst of a very serious drought. These past few days have been beautiful, cool for this time of year (mid 80's,) low humidity, absolutely Carolina Blue skies---but the water rationing has tightened to the point that only gray water may be used to water outside plants. I am shutting down my small commercial cut flower growing operation 3 months early. Even some of my day lilies and peonies are dead or dying.

Anybody know a song about drought and dying fields?
