Heat wave

Lacking the opportunity (to say nothing of the ability) to don light-colored clothing to reflect the heat, cattle take refuge in the only piece of shade available to combat the unseasonably high temperatures that have come to Southwest Nebraska and Northwest Kansas in recent days. The forecast calls for above-average temperatures to continue through the end of the week. Photographer Roxy Lang of Wilsonville, Nebraska, noted that the "pastures are dried up and not much for grazy, but they (the cattle) seem to find something to eat." She took this shot Thursday, Aug. 22, in Furnas County, Nebraska, using these settings: f/9, 1/200, iso250, 300mm. The McCook Gazette would love to showcase your weather photos. Readers can contribute to our daily weather page, subject to space and color availability, by emailing photos to editor2@ocsmccook.com or bringing them into the Gazette offices at West First and E Streets.
