We've been home from CA less than 2 weeks and I'm ready to move there :) The weather was amazing! I was wearing a jacket 90% of the time. And, sometimes I was still shivering!
I think Texans like to pretend the heat really isn't all that oppressive. At least, we pretend for non-Texans who always find out you're from Texas and automatically talk about the
uglinessflatness, the lack of trees and/or the heat. But, really, it's bad. This summer has certainly been the worst since we've been back, if not the worst in my memory. We're 40+ for how many days in a row we've hit triple digits. Plus, we haven't had a drop in rain in probably longer than that. Our flower beds have never looked worse :)
Anyway, the clouds rolled in this afternoon. I hear thunder, but no rain, yet. I've got the girls doing their rain dances :) Not really, but we've certainly prayed for just a little relief.
We were out this morning and you could feel the extra humidity hanging in the air. The temperature was getting up there, but hadn't reached 100*. I'm not sure if we made it there yet today because now it's in the 80s. I was so excited when I saw that! Until, I saw the predicted temp change between 3 and 4 o'clock today. Oh, well, I guess I shouldn't complain about the little relief we're getting now. In fact, I should be outside enjoying it!
