94°F IMBY, but the dewpoint is 7°F higher than yesterday - and the heat index hit the Century mark. The grass loved it. We'll hang on until Friday and the weekend with rain chances....and avoid turning on the sprinklers.

Euro has most of the rain west of Houston (Austin, Hill Country), but nearly 2 inches in BCS from Friday noon to Tuesday evening. Fingers crossed!

Too hot for the yard work I had to do earlier, thats for sure. Let's hurry up and get back to fall.
On Storm 2K, one of the more educated guys on there is saying this summer could be like 2007. Boy, would that be nice!!

I didn’t become a Texan until 2013 (from SW Louisiana, so similar climate). Please educate me as to what the 2007 Summer was like....:)

Rain every week. When I left Ohio State (graduated in December 2006) I moved to Houston. That summer I was in a recreational sports league and we had rain out after rain out.

Humberto was that Summer as well. Hugged the Texas coast and spun up in less than 24 hours.

My thermometer reads 97F. It’s hot.
Yep. It feels like I shoved a bottle of El Yucateco up my backside and I am standing on my head. This weather is for the birds.

Man I thought I was the biggest hot weather hater in a Texas looks like I was wrong. :D
I realize where I live. I chose here because of the economy and opportunity.

I’m not lying when I say that I hate temps over 75 in this climate because of the humidity. 80 and really really dry isn’t bad, but I’m very warm blooded. I can sit on my back porch in sweatpants and a t shirt when it’s 35 outside.

Gotta head out to Abilene area this weekend (well, south of it, but nobody knows where Paint Rock is). Looks like we might see a lot of rain.

I recently saw a Texas Country Reporter segment wherein they highlighted a man who welds iron in Paint Rock. He makes some very lovely iron cooking pans that are a bit above my pay grade.
I would like to visit Paint Rock one day.
Enjoy your trip, Cro.

Little bit drier air (when it's not raining) out that direction in the Concho Valley between Ballinger and Eden. But those folks out there will take every drop they can get.

While you SE Texas folks are sweltering, it was 47F this morning in Western NC and it struggled to reach a high of 54F with rainfall and some of it very heavy. I still haven't turned on the A/C this year.

Rub it in! I’m sure you don’t miss this heat one bit. I sure wouldn’t! Our AC is running like its August already!

Just hope this hurricane season is nice to us. Saw Jeff’s email earlier about the monsoonal trough in early June and we will see how it plays out.
