It's India-hot in Texas



Jeeze, it's been in the hundreds all week.
I've been so sticky, cranky and hot, my disposition is shot to hell.
My electric bill will be astronomically high next month from running the A/C like a Sultan in Dubai all month.
I don't care.
Neighborhood kitties are opening fire hydrants to cool off.
The tires melted off my car.
My Crocs fused to my feet when I was walking out to my car.
My window tinting melted into the car doors.
The sun bleached my sunglasses clear.
I went swimming and the pool water was hotter than soup.
My lawn is crunchy.
My cacti is wrinkling up.
It's bad, man.
And it's not even August.

I don't blame you for cranking up the A/C..... no need to suffer. I don't do well with extreme heat either.
Blast the cool air & feel better. Whew!

This would be an instance where I would normally promote public nudity, but I don't think you want to be blinded by, for instance, a cavalcade of naked Rush Limbaugh fans.

It's 56 and raining here. Again.

It has been in the 80's most of the month..but today will hit the 90's..strange as we are usually in the 100's by the beginning of June.

Hope you stay cool KZ..cranky doesn't do for you. ;)

At least the heat has damaged your sense of humor!

i love, love, love that pic! it says it all. it's hot here, too, and i am very glad i decided to replace the a/c unit a few weeks ago.

Its not only not even August, its not even officially SUMMER yet. I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking.

Agree with Dusty; crankiness doesn't suit you, KZ...and I've seen you cranky! (it's scary folks).

Welcome to San Antonio's pre-summer summer. Followed by summer and then post-summer summer. Then two hours of winter and then pre-summer summer again.

JimBob, you have seen me cranky a few times, haven't you, pal? ;)
Yesterday I was especially cranky because it was hot and also time to once again collect money from those Spaniards who owe me dough.
I pried another grand from their clutched claws, leaving only $900 to go before I can bid them a cheery adieu.
Having accomplished that, I was far less cranky once I got home.
Today I only peeped my head out the front door long enough to get the mail, so I have stayed cool, calm and uncranky all day.
Now I'm eating sweet bing cherries and as content as a sleepy puppy drinking her mama's milk.

We had approximately two teacups of rain this morning.
Just enough to mix with the dust on my car to create a thin crust.

We've had 2 months of really lovely and seasonably cool weather, but with this odd cloud cover, threatening rain but nver doing it. I've been loving it! Today is the first "warmish" day. So, I am sorry to hear your woes. I'll get mine, though, just give it a couple of weeks.

Just fixed a sprinkler head. Now I can water the lawn.

I'm hoping to get grass in something other than varying shades of brown.
