The Oppressive Heat Continues in Texas

Tomorrow, August 13, if it reaches 100 degrees F or more, we will break a record here in North Texas.

The record, set back in 1980, was 42 consecutive days at or above 100 degrees. Tomorrow it will probably become 43 days.

The awful drought continues. Yesterday afternoon, it clouded up, the wind changed direction, and it cooled off a little, but we did not receive any rain.

Every so often, we just have to endure weather like this.

I don't know many people who are keeping up with gardening in this heat. It's been getting to 105 or more each day. We are going to have to start all over in the autumn.

It would be a joke to try and germinate seeds in this heat. Here's to better times with our weather!
