Summer in Texas

Although it is still 13 days til summer, I thought this was appropriate, as it is 97 degrees at 6:35 PM.  Drought conditions have returned to our fair state and it is HOT!

  • You no longer associate bridges (or rivers) with water
  • You can say 110 degrees without fainting
  • You eat hot chilies to cool your mouth off
  • You can make instant sun tea
  • You learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron
  • The temperature drops below 95, you feel a bit chilly
  • You discover that in July, it takes only 2 fingers to drive your car
  • You discover that you can get a sunburn through your car’s tinted window
  • You notice the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance
  • Hot water now comes out of both taps
  • It’s noon in July, kids are on summer vacation, and not one person is out on the streets
  • You actually burn your hand opening the car door
  • You break a sweat the instant you step outside…at 7:30 a.m.before work
  • No one would dream of putting vinyl upholstery in a car or not having air conditioning
  • Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, “What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?”
  • You realize that asphalt has a liquid state

Maybe I should visit hellboy.  Dual purpose, cool off and beat his in-laws up. 😀

    I remember it well. I love my home state, but I’ll be the first to admit, there are things I don’t like about it. Basically every fucking thing on that list. 😀
