I've been in Texas since Fall of last year
everybody told me that summeer in Texas is gonna be worse than in Missouri.

The A/C on my car doesn't work (it's always off)
I thought I'd see how long I can last without A/C in San Antonio and I made it through Spring.
BTW, I park in a covered parking lot that helps a lot, but then I have to drive 20 miles from the Airport to Cibolo.

The worse heat that I've felt so far,
was one day that I went to play soccer around 6:00pm and parked my car in a parking lot without trees, I played soccer for about 1 hour in the heat (about 95) and then I got in my car and I almost died.

If I made it this far... you guys think I can make it through the Summer?

I've been in Texas since I was 7. I didn't have a/c in my car until I was 21. I'm sure you will survive, but it won't be fun. Lots of water, and several showers a day helped me get through it.

It's amazing how much humidity has an effect on how it feels.

what they run about 40 bucks at autozone, you'll have to jump your AC compressor though.
