We are in the middle of a drought …
… with record high temps.
I am not a fan of hot hot summers.
I’m reading about records from the 1950’s and some as far back as the 1800’s that our current conditions are similar to!
About 3 weeks before the first day of summer, Texas Guy came home from work and said,
I’m ready for winter.
I had to tell him that we hadn’t even started summer yet. Winter is a long ways away.
He was not happy to hear that.
This is going to be a loooooonnngg summer.
Yesterday, I saw a news headline that read: August heat on it’s way
The first sentence said: The hottest month of the year in Texas begins tomorrow, and local forecasts say this August won’t disappoint.
I have no idea what the rest of the article said.
I just couldn’t bring myself to read any more.
Then Miss M walked by me …
Momma, I know I was born a Texan, but I’m no dummy. I’m outta here!
I’ll see you later when you and Daddy come to your senses.
I was both heartbroken and proud at the same time.
Later that night I checked the weather.
Maybe I could reason with her.
Wait for me, precious girl!! I just need to pack my toothbrush!
