"Remember When...."

Remember when we were getting enough Texas showers for little, delicate flowers to sprout in the harshest of conditions?
Remember when dark clouds gathered and a slight rumble of thunder could be heard in the distance?

Remember when a refreshing breeze along the shoreline of your favorite lake made you want the afternoon to last forever? 

Well, those days are gone as Texans endure another sweltering summer with temperatures in the triple digits as we plow through July.  In fact, we don't endure as much as we find our selves captives in our own air-conditioned homes to avoid the onslaught of these strength-sapping conditions.

On the bright side, relief is only weeks away when temperatures drop to the mid-80's feeling like a cold snap, followed by a dramatic drop to the upper 60's when Texans break out their sweaters, knowing that before long temps will plummet to a bone-numbing 50 degrees or so and it's time to break out the NorthFace parkas, alpaca scarves, stocking caps and fleece-lined mittens.

And we wonder why the Cheeseheads of Green Bay, Wisconsin call us sissies.

  1. Perhaps I shouldn't mention to you that we're currently enjoying *under*-90 temps in the Seattle area while visiting our family.... ;)

    Loved seeing you! Now we're getting to see some of our other dearies. Life is good, no matter what the temperature.
