 Today will be sunny with a high of 79. Tonight will be clear to partly cloudy and cooler, with  a low of 47.

Amazon Prime Day starts today-buyer beware!

According to Nathan Barrow of Wirecutter, be all the "deals" aren't really deals at all.

Nathan says "Don’t be fooled. Prime Day is mostly a sea of overhyped discounts."

“Many products presented as being on sale during Prime Day aren’t well-discounted,” Nathan explained, “and others that offer excellent pricing won’t offer the product quality we’d hope to see.” Some are unreliable, like tantalizingly priced TVs. Others are on verge of obsolescence, like the Apple Watch Series 3 and some video-game consoles.

There are still some deals to be found — on headphones, pressure cookers, Kindles and other items.

Mans best friend
Meet Poco! (A36296293) - He is a 7 year old Cattle dog mix that is already neutered! Poco came to the shelter because his owner passed away and he had no where else to go. The home he came from had another little dog and two cats. He is very friendly when he meets other dogs he people he doesn't know. Poco gets excited to go outside so he pulls on a leash until he gets his energy out. His coat needs a little help in getting healthy again by having a good diet, staying on flea prevention and a few good baths.
He will have a microchip, already neutered, one month of flea/tick prevention, one month of heart worm prevention, vaccine and deworming. He is heart worm negative.
