It is so friggin' hot and dry: 7% humidity outside and 90º on my thermometer in the shade. I've been making sure the birds have water but it's a task to keep everything else watered. The city of Boulder has a policy this year of penalizing over-watering, but you don't have any way to know when you're about to go over the limit. I'm usually under the limit, but it's hard to tell.
We spent some time at the Boulder creek yesterday and soaked in the sounds and negative ions from the burbling water. It took my mind off my crunchy grass at home.
This picture from wikimedia.org really does it justice.
