It's a dry heat


#1

A digital thermometer in our garden that is not in direct sunlight and installed in a protected area just about a foot off the ground is reading 118°F and rising. Heck it was only 116° yesterday!
The lawn that gets mostly sun is on a flex schedule and going to run each morning for the next 4 days until on Saturday when the temps are predicted to cool off to 102°.

The lawn looks great even in this heat. Thanks Rachio!

It’s not like that every summer. Only the ones when we have excessive heat.:smile:

Same here @sunny. My lawn is predicted to go every other day, but just barely. I wouldn’t be surprised if it irrigated a few days in a row. Last week it was every 3rd day. The shrubs are currently at every 5 days, even with the heat. I can’t imagine using my old school controller anymore as it would be such a waste. I would’ve had to over-water constantly or risk losing vegetation during weeks like this.
