US Swelters in Record Heat & Drought

The extreme heat that has gripped the South is now heading east and could reach dangerous levels in parts of the Midwest, the Plains and the Southeast this week.

23 states were under heat advisories Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Kansas City, Missouri, and St. Louis are under an excessive heat warning, along with Tulsa, Oklahoma; Memphis, Tennessee; and Evansville, Indiana. In these areas, the heat index, or how hot the body feels due to the combined effects of heat and humidity, will reach between 110 and 115 degrees this week. [Source]

Worse than the heat is the drought that is now spread across 14 states, from Florida, where severe water restrictions are in place, to Arizona, where ranchers could be forced to sell off entire herds of cattle because they simply cannot feed them.

In Texas, where the drought is the worst, virtually no part of the state has been untouched. City dwellers and ranchers have been tormented by excessive heat and high winds. In the Southwest, wildfires are chewing through millions of acres.

The heat and the drought are so bad in southwest Georgia that hogs can barely eat. Corn, a lucrative crop with a notorious thirst, is burning up in fields. Cotton plants are too weak to punch through soil so dry it might as well be pavement. [Source]

Human beings have air conditioning and tap water, but farmers’ crops are parched and innocent wildlife are dying.

God, have mercy on us.

Please pray for rain and cooler temps!

Same thing here. Lots of flooding, seems to be over now, but the heat and drought on top of the late planting due to the flooding is leaving the harvest thin. Expect food prices to climb, I guess we’ll be able to eat, a few poor people from “over there” may have to starve to death though. We can’t feed the planet now and things are just going to get exponentially worse until they have no option but to move rapidly forward with agenda 21.


p.s. anybody can plant a small vegetable garden in their yards or even a vacant lot. We do it, I grow tomatoes, cucumbers, beans and other vegetables. If I have too much, I share with my neighbours and freeze the rest, giving me cheap fresh organic vegetables and fruit through the winter. Collect rain water from your downspouts with buckets to water during dry spells. Eowyn, your garden is great, I’m going to post pics of mine as I am an avid gardener as well….please don’t tell the boys, I have an image to uphold.


sage…..and anyone, wondering about the weather? Look into HAARP, based on nicolai tesla’s patents and working in alaska. Google earth has since removed it. The European Union asked for clarification on what exactly they are doing…. no response. This is factual, conspiracy stuff designed to screw with mothewr nature by beaming extremely high voltage electrons into the ionosphere to alter weather patterns. weather is based on our ionosphere and solar flares, basically electro magnetism, which also drives the universe and every living creature on earth. Look it up, it is real and working. The director even admitted in a CBC… Read more »
