I just can’t win…

Dear friends in Texas,

Okay, so I wake up this morning to this compelling online news article from the Austin-American Statesman:


107 close to heat record

Friday, 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.


Dawn in Abu Dhabi


  1. Oh, you are much better staying there with the manof your dreams! This just sucks! I hope I make it thru this summer with the same problems you have :)

  2. Yes, it's HOT here. I can hardly type as my keyboard is melting...

  3. Oh, it is so hot here. My mom is visiting for the month, and the last time she was here was two years ago when it rained all summer. She is not prepared for this level of heat.

    Stay where you are as long as you can. And then call someone to turn your AC on a day before you arrive. :)

  4. Holy crap! That's the last time I complain about how hot it is in Michigan. That's just madness! Remind me if I ever decide to to TX to visit in the winter.

  5. 107-110 is about normal for this time of the year in Phoenix. Boy, am I glad to be in Colorado. :) Although, this house doesn't have a/c, which is really strange to a native desert girl. But I'm finding out that it's not really necessary.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
