Default What is with this heat?

The normal high for June is 91 degrees.

Yes, it's higher than average. This will be a long, hot summer! If you're new to Texas-welcome, the first summer's always the hardest.

Hopefully we're getting it out of the way now so it'll only be 99 in August!

HaHaHa,

That's funny. I remember a few years back when it was 100 degrees in February. I think this summer/year will be alot like last year - HOT&DRY. I only had to mow my yard once last year.

Anyway, I'm glad I'm from Texas because I would rather be hot than cold. I can always go swimming or find a water hole. Unless, of course, they are full of yankees crowding up the place and drinking/wasting all of our precious H2O. Now I don't know if I should laugh or cry. Oh well.

I know, I'll pray for economic ruin and state bankruptcy. Then, everyone will be forced to sell their homes at discount and leave to find work elsewhere. I'll have no choice but be forced to buy all of your homes for pennies on the dollar and send you packing with memories of good 'ol Hot/Dry Austin. But don't worry, if you leave a forwarding address I can snail you some dust and glory from this years ACL.

How did people survive the summers back before they had air conditioning? It must have been miserable. I recall a 4th of July on a our sailboat on Lake Travis when even the water was too hot to be comfortable, even floating in the shade of the boat. The only time it was comfortable was when we took a dip, and got out of the water to sit in the shade under our boat awning, where there was a breeze blowing to dry us off. As soon as we were dry we had to hop back into the water to get wet again.

shotgun houses, open windows, open doors, fans and front porches...along with lots of iced water, tea and lemonade. My great grandma told us that when they were kids they got to sleep on the screened in porch in the summer.

It doesn't compare to the summer of 1980. Oh my, God help us not to have a summer like that again. They're all hot, but that one was ridiculous.
