Pooches and Humidity

Hello Everyone,

This is Kevin (Mike's summer intern) filling in for Mike while he's doing a live shot from Columbian Park with the Hike with Your Hound event. There's going to be a lot of vendors at the event promoting hound-related health. Several demonstrations, games, and contests are in store for this fun evening for you and your best friend. The event is free, but 5 dollar donations are suggested for participants to the Dog Park Association of Greater Lafayette, which will donate proceeds to Pawsibilities Unleashed, a not-for-profit organization that is working to raise funds to purchase and train a working dog for a Lafayette youngster. Four-year-old Addy suffers from Dravet Syndrome which causes her to have seizures. Her working dog will be trained to recognize the symptoms of her seizures, and alert an adult immediately, so your donations are appreciated.

On the weather front (no pun), we are tracking some storms in south western Illinios, but they aren't expected to move into Indiana as they are spinning counterclockwise around a low pressure center currently in Oklahoma. A complementing high pressure center is over the New England area that is going to funnel lots of moisture into our area tomorrow. Though most of it will end up in Illinois, we will still have a heat index in the mid 90's for tomorrow. July is the hottest, but August is humid, and we are going to fell it tomorrow. Stay cool, and remember to hydrate throughout the day!

Thank you Kevin! What a wonderful fund raiser, and a great event! I pray little Abby and her family will soon meet their new canine companion and friend!

Also thank you for the weather update!
