Posted malamute: You can always tell when a southerner is writing on the weather. When it gets humid and steamy, they get quite happy.


Come on now it was kind of nice

I was born and raised in El Paso... and found that to be very nice. I really enjoyed it.. I was kinda disappointed to see it go, and that it did not get Gulf coast on us.

Quite obvious whoever is designing the roadbeds............should be fired.

You can't build flat roadways.. they need to be crowned to allow the water to run off....into culverts... which lead into storm drains.

Road engineering 101.
Actually, roads are now designed this way so that they act as secondary stormwater containment to prevent flooding of homes and businesses. Standard design in southern states now.

Well it's different -- kind of feels like a sauna with all the hot moisture rising up. I kind of like it but I tolerate the dry heat better.

This is what's very nice about El Paso, all the little extra seasons we get while most places just get 2-4.

Maybe I could live in the south, I've actually found these couple of hot steamy days to be quite pleasant. Other than the mosquitos anyhow.

Only 3, if you were in Mississippi, you would have many more than 3. =) Texas thinks it has everything bigger, nope, Mississippi had Mosquito Birds.

True some nights in the south you can not sit outside due to all the bugs!!
I love that here we eat outside almost everynight.
