Marion County Dog Pound - Marion, OH

Ruff ruff! My name is Daphne. I am an adult female Rottweiler. I arrived as a stray on 17 Jan 2013. Almost a month here is not doing me any good! Please be my valentine?
A volunteer writes: Daphne is very nervous at the pound. She does know how to sit for treats and she is waiting patiently for her new fur-ever home!! Please share and help Daphne find a calm and safe environment!

Record Heat and Thunderstorms Continue for Southern Illinois

I know I’m sounding like a broken record with the weather, but we actually had rain today for once. Here’s the latest…

The record high temperature has now been broken four days in a row in Salem. The thermometer topped out at 100 degrees on Saturday and 101 on Sunday. The old record for both days was 98 degrees. Record highs also fell on Thursday and Friday. On Thursday, the temperature reached 104 degrees. That was just one degree shy of the all time record high of 105 degrees set on August 20th, 1983.

So far for Monday, temperatures have reached a high of 97 degrees at the Salem Airport, but dropped back a few degrees thank to some rain that moved through northern Marion County around 2:00 Monday afternoon. Temperatures did rebound into the upper 90’s in Salem, while temperatures soared past 100 degrees in Centralia, where they had not seen any rain. An excessive heat warning is in effect until seven o'clock tonight for the WJBD listening area.

The National Weather Service reports temperatures could reach 110 degrees in Carlinville, Charleston, Effingham, Vandalia, Olney, and Salem. The warning is not in effect for Central and East Central Illinois but that doesn’t mean they’re in the clear. Thunderstorms are expected to bring gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and even some hail. Some storms prompted severe thunderstorm warnings for portions of the area, including northern Fayette County near Ramsey around 4:00 Monday afternoon.

The storms will likely reduce the temperature but people are encouraged to drink plenty of water and stay indoors if at all possible. And as always, be sure to check on the elderly to make sure they’re keeping cool.

After this was posted, more rain fell across the area, with rain in Salem while I was in my meeting in Wamac. When I got home the power went out and I had to fix my internet. Other than that, not a bad day.

My mouth feels better, but I found out tonight that I have another infection, doesn’t hurt but if not taken care of, it could lead to more problems later on. So I have to call the doctor tomorrow to see if they will send me a prescription to clear the rest of it up.

I applied for two more jobs today, one in Lexington and one in Indianapolis. Hope for a callback before the end of the month.

And that is my world at this hour.
