It's July. Of Course It's Hot.

We're about half-way through "meteorologic" summer--June, July, August--and the comments are flowing. Where ever you are in our great land, chances are that you've already noticed. It's warm. Look at the calendar to see why.

I can never get over the reactions of people who seem amazed when Texas is covered by hot weather about this time of year. I can see those people who go to various parts of the country where they can enjoy a relatively cool climate, but c'mon folks, this is Texas. It's hot in the summer. It's cold in the winter. And if you don't like the weather, follow Mark Twain's advice--just wait a bit and it will change.

How about you? How's your summer going? And, as the saying goes, "Hot enough for you?"

It's supposed to hit 93 degrees F here in central Virginia. Not horribly hot compared to other places, but I do make sure to get my outdoor exercise and chores done early in the morning before it's too unpleasant. I have a son-in-law who works outside in the Fort Worth area, so really I have NOTHING to complain about!

I have 900 words still left to write today. I gotta skedaddle.

We've had 107-degree heat index here in North Mississippi, but I haven't complained yet...winter is too fresh in my mind. lol
