Y is for Yikes! It's Hot and Dry!

This year's theme for my A-to-Z Blogging Challenge is Significant Events from 2021 and the first 3 months of 2022.

At the end of today's post is a teaser for tomorrow's Z post.  Enjoy! 

On June 27, 2021, it was 117F degrees at my house in Southern California.  During the period June 20-30, 2021, a massive heat wave covered the western half of North America.  Yes, I'm kinda cheating to put this one under Y.  But Yikes!  It's hot and dry!

Here's how much HIGHER than the average temperature it was in Washington State and Western Canada.

Here's the 2021 US Drought Monitor

And here's a photo of Lake Oroville, which shows the high water line and just how low the water level currently is.  California's drought is not fun.

Here's a teaser for tomorrow's Z post.  Remember, to avoid spoiling the answer for the next blog visitor, please comment on something related to the answer without giving the actual answer.

    Tomorrow: Some actors can handle politics well, some can't. Why do we get the bad actors?
