    It is indeed a mess.

    My flooded friend was away for the Fourth and came back along the river, getting more concerned with each mile he drove.

    I was reading about the New Orleans risk - normally storms in New Orleans come later in the year, which is why the Mississippi is usually so much lower. Also, apparently all the engineering further upstream to contain the river means that there's little overflow into floodplains - all the water is trapped between the riverbanks and heads all the way down to the gulf.

    A friend's home already has several inches of water on the ground floor

    Calamine is for poison ivy, etc.

    Isn't witch hazel used as eye drops rather than skin lotion?

    Not eye drops (that I've heard of - you'd probably go blind!) but it's supposed to have a number of benefits: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition...-benefits-uses

    I'd have just preferred it if my parents had invested in some sun cream in the first place!

    Heh. After my unprotected lillywhite skin had been burnt to a crisp on holiday that, or witch hazel, was what my parents usually turned to.

    Because you aren't snooping around in our medicine cabinet?

    Belter of a thunderstorm in Boston (83 degrees) this afternoon. Had just gone into a bar in the north end to have one drink to cool off and ended up having to stay for nearly 3 hours til the skies cleared - oh dear, what a shame....

    Lovely evening afterwards although I can still see distant lightning flickering away to the west.

    Very weird at the moment.

    The sun is shining and it is clear over the river, but we can hear thunder and it is really dark to the east.

    34.5C in my garden at 14:00. But we're South facing and on top of a hill, so it's a bit of a suntrap.
    What a glorious day it's been. I've been outside loads, had all three meals sat on the terrace and I'm still sat here now enjoying a nice view of Jupiter and a gentle breeze.
    Got 5 loads of washing done and dried too.
    Typical bloody England though. Europe has a week long heatwave and what do we get? One day. Sheesh.



    Bourbon and coke. Sky at Night magazine. Soft led lighting. And Jupiter in the sky. Lovely.

    I didn't remember this storm being in the forecast, but looking at this screenshot from earlier, I can see that it was. Just about right on schedule, too. Welp, Teddy's gone underground already.

    I would guess that the proximity of the sea helps in that regard.

    The really extreme temperatures in France have generally been recorded well inland.

    Depending on which website you believe, it's between 35 and 38 degrees here at the moment. Hot but not so oppressive for now,

    The melting catenary was on the line from Paris to Clermont-Ferrand, and caused one train to be delayed by more than 11 hours, without A/C or working toilets. Rails have also been buckling, as their heat-induced expansion more than fills the gaps between pieces. SNCF has asked riders to forego non-essential travel in the worst affected areas.
