Dear friends in Texas,
Okay, so I wake up this morning to this compelling online news article from the Austin-American Statesman:
“CENTRAL TEXAS WEATHER
107 close to heat recordFriday, June 26, 2009
Austin recorded its second-hottest June day in history Thursday, with temperatures reaching 107 degrees at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and 106 at Camp Mabry.
Meteorologist Bob Rose of the Lower Colorado River Authority said temperatures had reached that high in June only once — on June 14, 1998, when it was 109 degrees at the airport and 108 at Camp Mabry.
Travis County remains under a heat advisory until 7 p.m. Saturday and the weather service warns of oppressive heat for the next several days.”
Yeah, um, I'm thinking I may have to stay here until it cools off a little bit. At least here, the A/C units are designed for temps that high and won't blow up. I shudder to think what will happen when I get home and try to cool off that monster of a house to accommodate my pre-menopausal hot flashing, night sweating, can-I-fit-in-the-ice-box body temperature?
Let me know when the temperature is a little less than the comfort level of Hell and I'll come home.
