Just to set the record straight

I was chatting with my loving mother a couple of nights ago, and it came to my attention that folks living in non-Texan places might have heard a rumor that it has cooled down here in Texas.

I'm here to set the record straight.

It is HOT.

At the end of the day, your body tells you when you haven't had enough to drink, because you start to wilt.  And if you dare do something crazy, like go for a walk between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m., you just might put yourself in the hospital.  It's crazy hot.

This afternoon, i opted to treat myself to a Dr. Pepper instead of water on my way home from work, and i feel it.  So now i sit and sip on icey cold tea and just give my body a chance to recoop.

Believe it or not, though, there's a rumor we might be on our way to some cooler weather.  It was only 96 in the heat of the afternoon, and one small area in houston actually saw water fall from the sky.  It caused a traffic jam, and i heard someone caught pneumonia from the cold weather, but we're hoping the cool will come back anyway.

Is it really too much to ask for temps in the 90s?

Really?

That is my Friday evening, dehydrated rant.

And for all of you in the U.S. who are experiencing weird weather, including way too much rain instead of too little, we're all in it together.  I haven't forgotten you.  Maybe i just wish someone could get a big spoon a stir the pot a bit so we could get some rain, and you could get some dry.

Let's keep praying.

Good night y'all, before i  start rambling.

I know, too late.

  1. I know it's hot there -- I have family in Texas.... although from my memory, it's always hot there! I'm feeling for ya! It's been hot here too, but we got nothing to complain about compared to TX....
