Looks like summer is going to finally be here in Nebraska. 80’s and 90’s all week with sun and minimal clouds. Winter stayed forever which made spring stay late. Not sure how long this will last but enjoy it while you can.

I’m not the biggest fan of heat but I will tolerate it. Plus, our crops need it. We are behind as it is.

I’m off to work. Enjoy the week folks.
