Summers are never all that enjoyable to me. It's hot, there are bugs, brats are out of school, and people in general seem to get twice as annoying.

Anyway, I feel so sorry for Dallas. I shed tears. But there is some good news, and that's that this weekend will mark the beginning of the second half of summer. We're almost over the hump, and that first cold front will be here before we know it.

I hate summer period. Extremely uncomfortable season. Hang in there Texans. September is right around the corner.

You mean November? September is horrible too. Last year, there were 22 days over 90 (speaking of Dallas), but that is better than what we're dealing with now. October isn't a prize (21 days over 80) and in November, there were only 4 days over 80.

Well last year, September is when much of Texas got our first cool down. One week it was in the 90s, then a few days later the highs were in the 70s for a few days and it felt sooooooooooo good. From there the month of October was like a back and forth between the 70s/80s.

I'm hoping the same will happen this year, but the drought may have to end before that is possible.

The drought's not helping anything either. The river's and lakes are drying up & putting a damper on a lot of people's reprieve from the heat.

Yeah, it's hot, but the heat is not that unusual for this time of year, in this state. I'm certainly not saying it's good or pleasant, but it's nothing significantly different from other years.

The Dallas area alone has been sitting well above 100 for a while now, and the drought has made things so much worse all around. Our state is considered to be in a state of disaster. There's nothing at all that's usual about this summer. Even for Texas

Summers like this are more rare than snow. That's saying something

The first week of September is bad but the rest of that month feels fine to me. And October is even nicer. I like warm and sunny weather. I just dont like hot weather like we have now. I do like crisp cool days as well though. I just dont like bitter cold like we had last Feb. November is a pleasant month out here.
