Ah, August in Texas. This is when all the yankee transplants begin to rethink their decision to move down here ...

We're heading into the most intense heat of the year coming up... Are you ready?

They mentioned in the paper today that August is expected to be even more hot and dry than July!

The KXAN website under weather says 48 days of 100+ degrees and today is the first day of August.

You got that right. Our tenant's lease on our California home is up on October 15th. If my husband gets the right salary offer on August 12th our 9 month old home in Round Rock will be offered for lease and we are history.

That would be typical.

The nice thing about August is that you can at least see a light at the end of the tunnel. If we're at 48 100+ degree days right now, that means if we tie the most ever in history (69), we've only 21 more days of those temps. Just 3 more weeks worth. For the whole rest of the year.

Personally, I think we'll break the record by about 5 days or so. But that's still less than 1 extra week of 100 degree temps.

We'll probably get at least a small break for the last week in August. By the second week in September, we'll all be marveling at how comfortable 95 seems. Then, with any luck, some fall rains.

Maybe I'm in the minority but with the low humidity this summer, the heat has been pretty bearable compared to most years.
