Yikes!!! More than 80 at night.  I've been complaining about it staying
above 60 at night.  Going camping this weekend and the over night temps up
there are supposed to be 38F for the low, now that is comfortable.  Doesn't
do much for growing tho, the season up there is about over. I'll be taking
along the ziplocks just in case there was enough moisture to have currants

Your nighttime temps are in the 80's? Can Miz Anne, Sleepy Dawg, and me move
with you? It's too blasted hot down here. We should be seeing the temps
start to
drop in anticipation of what passes for autumn and fall but instead they are
still rising. As they say in Cajun Land, "It's hot yeah!"
