Thanks for the info. On our weather last night, it seems I'm far enough that I might get some of that cooler air from up North, with a high of only 99. If I remember right, Hills City Kansas, and one Southern Nebraska town I can't think of right now, both had 115 yesterday, with the same dry wind we had (what gets me is how it can be 30MPH winds all day, every day, gusting higher). I have irrigation, and I can't remember the last time I saw the ground take in so much water. Dad says in 83 or 88, it was so dry and windy that only the guys who furrow irrigated could keep up, because it was hot, dry, and windy like this, all summer, and pivots just had too much evaporation.

Several years ago was out in east central Nebraska and it was a day much like today and the pivot was pointed straight south and the big end gun was puting out at least an inch and a quarter stream of water into that hot dry breeze and not one drop was hitting the ground.
It just made a rainbow and was gone into thin air.
