Whew! Worked out quite a bit in the yard this evening - I planted about 30 plants and wow was I ever dirty and sweaty when all was said and done! But I think everything will do great.

Thank goodness for sprinkler systems and storms.

11:30am. Sitting on a bench beneath a stand of Ponderosa Pine at 7000'. It's 81 degrees, but with the low humidity it feels like it's still in the 70s. Will be in the 70s almost all next week. Glorious.

Careful, lack of sweating and confusion ("felt great outside") are signs of heat stroke.

Right now at 1pm in central Houston (East Montrose) it is 97 degrees with a heat index of 108. The low last night was a balmy 77 degrees with 89% relative humidity, and the 20 minute downpour this morning followed by partly sunny skies are keeping things pretty steamy. Best to keep the car out of the sun, as its temperature was up to 114 degrees when parked at work this week.

Only 92 more days until the average high temperature falls below 90! If Houston is "lucky" it may get a Tropical Storm that may keep temperatures "down" for a couple of days (rain with highs in the 80s) between now and October.

No worries - I don't have a lick of heat stroke. I am born and bred in the southern US and apparently have a high tolerance level for heat. I work out in my yard all year long and I love it.

I don't live anywhere near Houston by the way, and frankly I wouldn't. It's too sticky humid down there. If I was going to have to live in that area, I'd at least live in New Orleans which is where I'm from originally. But actually I wouldn't live there either. I prefer northeast Texas to southeast Texas or southern Louisiana. Or for that matter anywhere close to the Gulf of Mexico. Just my personal preference.

Right now in northeast Texas - at 1:40 in the afternoon - it's 91 degrees and the humidity is 48 percent. I love it. In fact, I just came in from being outside all morning long, working in the yard and then splashing around in the pool. Had to get all the yard work done because we are in for quite a bit of rain - and a drop in temps - over the next few days. Thankfully I got it all done!

Your opening line reminded me of a funny thing that happened when I was in high school. I went to Panama City, FL with some friends from Georgia and Michigan. Us Georgia folks were in our element - lots of heat, sun, and summertime hoopla at the beach. But within about 6 hours - in spite of sunscreen and lots of water - our Michigan friends, without exception (there were four of them) were hunkered down in their hotel rooms with heat exhaustion, sunburn, you name it. I felt sorry for them but we couldn't do much for them other than check on them from time to time. So we proceeded to have a great few days at the beach while they watched a lot of TV in their cool, dark hotel rooms.

For what it's worth, I'll update the thread when I get too hot for too long. So far so good! I'm sure there will be a stretch of 100 degree days - probably in July or August - when I'll be burning up - and I'll be sure to keep you posted. But then I'll just remember how much I love our mild winters and gorgeous springs when I feel that way. And of course, my husband and I nearly always go on vacation to some place like Maine in September, because by then we're tired of being hot - much like people from other regions vacation in warm spots when they're tired of being cold.

It's nice to have options!

I have a nice tan and have lost weight this year, so I am enjoying wearing lots of summery clothes and sandals and showing some skin. I've really been enjoying water aerobics outside this summer too. It's my favorite workout! Can't wait to build that pool in our backyard - that's our project this winter - because as you know, we won't have to deal with snow and ice so the pool company can put the pool in this winter or early spring and it should be ready for us to jump into in April - sooner than that if we spring for the heater.

WOOHOOOO!!!!! Love me some summer!

Heat index is 98 in Tyler right now, cold front must've moved in. I got a hat on though, so lots of shade.

BTW, what you don't want is a storm through Houston. Lots of mosquitos.

A deliciously cool 64° and cloudy at noon right now in San Diego, the sun barely trying to struggle through. It’s not supposed to hit 70° on the coast for several days. As someone who is extremely sensitive to heat as much as I like to visit “weather” for a while it is just much easier to just have 70° +/- 10° with morning clouds and afternoon sunshine year round to plan your life and enjoyment around.

Yep, trying to set up a transfer to California in a few years.

I was playing in the pool here at 9 this morning and needless to say there was no heater required. And no, the cool front has not rolled in yet - that is forecast for tomorrow evening. Tomorrow should be in the low 90s again - then we're in supposedly for several days in the 80s, with scattered showers and thunderstorms, which I love. Bring it on!

I don't know what an REI is by the way, Gaylord Focker. Are you talking about the outdoor recreation store?
