Glad you're going to get it then and glad I'm not! Hey, did you get any of that golf ball sized hail they were forecasting today? I sure hope not.

Oh and batten down the hatches because your winds tomorrow are forecast to be out of the north and 25 mph - yikes!

I'd love to keep this going but I have to get an early start tomorrow since you know, the royal wedding and then the yard guy - and the sun will be coming up early so I better hit the hay!

Beautiful late spring day here - here's the forecast for this evening for where I am. I love temps in the mid 80s - to me that's prime! And look at all that sun...

I've already been outside pitterpattering around in the gardens.

We've been constantly hitting mid 80s most of the month, and I been enjoying it because our sun isn't too strong like down south so its nice and warm without frying your face. I know yesterday got super hot in North Texas, though! I'm not quite ready for 90s yet.

Bring it on!

I've already got a decent tan and my yard has lots of trees and shade so I'm not worried about the sun. I'm a porch sitter from way on back - if I don't spend some time every morning and every evening sitting on the patio with my dogs, I don't feel like I've lived!

I usually eschew that though in July and August when even the nights are hot around here. (Still usually brave it in the morning.) I do prefer my evenings to be cooler than 85 degrees!

Not gonna lie, it's a little raw out there. A week ago today I was hiking in the foothills in similar temps. Other than the fog obliterating what should've been an awesome view of Red Rocks 1500' directly below us it was a great hike. Around 2000' of vertical gain over 1.8 miles with a little bit of scrambling near the summit.

Been gone from DFW for almost 7 years exactly. Haven't once considered moving back because of how wretched May-September is there.

The problem with DFW in summer is all that heat and humidity in the summer, yet little/none of the benefits. Like much of the Southern Plains, it falls under a stagnant subtropical ridge, which kills off rainfall, and the verdance that comes with it.

I don't much care for summers in the DFW area either, and that's one of many reasons why I choose not to live there. Too dry, too much concrete, too much heat retained, too much too much too much.

It gets hot for a long time here too (an hour east of Dallas) but we have more hills, more trees, more greenery, and more shade. I believe more rain too. It's just more verdant here. That's important to me. I can stand the heat but I hate when things get dry too.

Today is cloudy and a high in the low 60s which is a nice break from the heat we've had, though more 80s to come. I hope summer 2019 is nice and hot because I'll be able to enjoy that summer more than this one. This summer I'll be too damn busy! I don't mind hot summers here because of all our lakes, just like I don't mind cold winters... all our lakes!
