We're gonna cook in H-Town for a while. Pass the butter and seasoning!
Went through that in the summer of '93. 10 straight days of 100+ temps and the famed Houston humidity. My a/c ran 24/7 for 3 straight days. Of course, I was living in an apartment at the time.

I'm geotagging photos right now; I took about 90 today. Most of the south end of the park is closed from 71st to the new park at 41st, but I took a lot of photos at the new park, and alot from the pedestrian bridge. They should be online no later than tonight.

And it was 97 degrees when I got back home. The only thing that saved us was the cool breeze coming off the water (both the river and the water fountains at the park).

Okie, thank you SO much. That was so nice of you to go and take pics especially in the heat that you've been having. Your pics are gorgeous and it looks like the River is pretty full for now anyway. This one is my favorite~~

That is just gorgeous and they should use it in their travel guide.

Those blue skies are beautiful. The skies here are gray with humidity and pollution.

I cheated a little bit. I used a circular polarizer filter for my camera. The skies, while not real heavy with the pollution, are a little grey from haze today. The filter works wonders on days like this. And if you look at the other photos, some of them look kind of hazy, just because I was lazy (didn't rotate the ring to filter well enough).

Cheat away!!! The pics in Flickr are fantastic. Thanks to Jammie for asking and you for doing it in the heat. Is Keystone open to keep it so "wet" in this kind of heat or is there still enough rain runoff from earlier in the month? They have really made some improvements along the river since I left 14 years ago. Lookin' good.

Looking at this page:

Keystone Lake

Thanks BigOkie. I keep forgetting that Google is my friend and there ain't much out there I couldn't find out for myself. I'm still used to the old fashioned "easy way".
