June 1:
Dear Diary
Just moved to Texas! Now this is a state that knows how to live! Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. It is beautiful. I've finally found my home. I love it here.

June 14th:
Really heating up. Got to 100 today. Not a problem. Live in an air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to see the sun everyday like this. I'm turning into a sun worshipper.

June 30th:
Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today. Lots of cactus and rocks. What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing the lawn for me. Another scorcher today, but I love it here.

July 10th:
The temperature hasn't been below 100 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least, it's kind of windy though. But getting used to the heat is taking longer than I expected.

July 15th:
Fell asleep by the community pool. (Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body). Missed 3 days of work. What a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson though. Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.

July 20th:
I missed Lomita (my cat) sneaking into the car when I left this morning. By the time I got to the hot car at noon, Lomita had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag, then popped like a water balloon. The car now smells like Kibbles and Bits. I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this heat. Good ol' Mr. Sun strikes again.

July 25th:
The wind sucks. It feels like a giant freaking blow dryer on 'high heat!' And it's hot as hell. The home air-conditioner is on the fritz and the AC repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he needed to order parts.

July 30th:
Been sleeping outside on the patio for 3 nights now, $225,000 house and I can't even go inside. Lomita is the lucky one. Why did I ever come here?

Aug. 4th:
It's 115 degrees. Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today. It cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 85. I hate this stupid state.

Aug. 8th:
If another wise-a$$ cracks, 'Hot enough for you today?' I'm going to strangle him. Stupid heat! By the time I get to work, the radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I smell like baked cat!!

Aug. 9th:
Tried to run some errands after work. Wore shorts, and when sat on the seats in the car, I thought my butt was on fire. My skin melted to the seat. I lost 2 layers of flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and rear . . . Now my car smells like burnt hair, fried butt, and baked cat.

Aug 10th:
The weather report might as well be a darn recording. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. It's been too hot to do S#!T for 2 damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week.. Doesn't it ever rain in this stupid state? Water rationing will be next, so my $1700 worth of cactus will just dry up and blow over. Even the cactus can't live in this flippin' heat.

Aug. 14th:
Welcome to HELL! Temperature got to 115 today. Cactus are dead.
Forgot to crack the window and blew the windshield out of the car. The installer came to fix it and guess what he asked me: "Hot enough for you today?" My sister had to spend $1,500 to bail me out of jail. Freaking Texas. What kind of a sick demented idiot would want to live here??

Will write later to let you know how the trial goes...

Funny, but this would fit better in the El Paso forum.

For as long as weather records have been kept, there has never been a record high temperature over 109 in Corpus and that only happened once in Sept. 2000. The record highs are usually much lower. http://www.intellicast.com/Local/History.aspx?month=7

I can see the heat indices running to 115-120 degrees though.

Last year I worked in the oil field and at rig locations thermometers maxed out on temperature. One digital thermometer read 124 degrees at one rig in Tilden, which isn't far from Corpus. On 72 between Three Rivers and Tilden I was about 30 ft. from a flare stack and a buddy of mine's truck read 137 degrees.

It gets pretty damn hot!
