As I sit here typing I opened a page or two on Accuweather .com

Hell, Michigan: (Well, Pinckney just a couple miles away) 74 degrees F

Abilene, TX: 88

So, Texas is offically HOTTER THAN HELL (Michigan)

Home is where I park it!

Hey Dale!

Will the UP still work after sitting without moving for four months??? Come on up, the weather is great - and a lot cooler.

Question How Hot is it in Texas?

Hey Guys.

How about sending some of that heat up our way?

Today we're having a balmy 72 deg F during the day and night time temps plummit to 58 deg F.

This sure is a summer to remember.

We can stand the heat. It is the lack of rain that is terrible. Our last measurable rain was May 28 & 29 with 1/2" each day. Our total for this year is 8.04"(since Jan.1). We are supposed to get 24" per year in this area. There are large trees here in the hillcountry that are dying. These are normally drought tollerant trees. Rivers are extremely low or dry. Wells are stressed.

Someone just sent this to me so I thought it would be good to share it with everyone.

Dear Diary,

Just moved to Texas ! Now this is a state that knows how to

Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. What a place!
It is beautiful. I've finally found my home. I love it here.

June 14th:

Really heating up. Got to 100 today. Not a problem. Live in an
air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car.

What a pleasure to see the sun everyday like this. I'm
turning into a sun worshipper.

June 30th:

Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today. Lots
of cactus and rocks. What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing
the lawn for me.

Another scorcher today, but I love it here.

July 10th:

The temperature hasn't been below 100 all week. How do
people get used to this kind of heat?

At least, it's kind of windy though. But getting used to the
heat is taking longer than I expected.

July 15th:

Fell asleep by the community pool. (Got 3rd degree burns
over 60% of my body). Missed 3 days of work. What a dumb thing
to do.

I learned my lesson though. Got to respect the ol' sun in a
climate like this.

July 20th:

I missed Lomita (my cat) sneaking into the car when I left
this morning. By the time I got to the hot car at noon, Lomita
had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag, then
popped like a water balloon.

I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this heat.

Good ol' Mr. Sun strikes again.

July 25th:

The wind sucks. It feels like a giant blow dryer!!

And it's hot as hell. The home air-conditioner is on the
fritz and the AC repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell
me he needed to order parts.

July 30th:

Been sleeping outside on the patio for 3 nights now,
$225,000 house and I can't even go inside. Lomita is the lucky one.
Why did I ever come here?

Aug. 4th:

It's 115 degrees. Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today.
It cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 85. I hate
this stupid state.

Aug. 8th:

If another wise ass cracks, 'Hot enough for you today?' I'm
going to strangle him. Damn heat.. By the time I get to work,
the radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I
smell like baked cat!!

Aug. 9th:

Tried to run some errands after work. Wore shorts, and when I
sat on the seats in the car, my ass caught fire.

My skin melted to the seat. I lost 2 layers of flesh and all
the hair on the back of my legs. . . Now my car smells

like burnt hair, fried ass, and baked cat.

Aug 10th:

I'm convinced now that the weather report is a damn recording. Hot
and sunny.

Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. It's been too hot to do anything
for 2 months and the weatherman says it might really warm up
next week.

Doesn't it ever rain in this God forsaken state? Water rationing
will be next, so my $1700 worth of cactus will just dry up and blow over.

Even the cactus can't live in this damn heat.

Aug. 14th:

Welcome to HELL! Temperature got to 115 today. Cactus are dead.

Forgot to crack the window and blew the damn windshield out
of the car. The installer came to fix it and guess what he
asked me??? "Hot enough for you today?"

My sister had to spend $1,500 to bail me out of jail.
Freaking Texas .

What kind of a sick demented idiot would want to live here??

Will write later to let you know how the trial goes.

"Happy Trails"

I feel so bad for y'all. We were on the road until July 14th, and enjoying low 60's to high 70's weather with some rain. From the 14th until now it is 74 degrees (inside the house) and I don't want to go outside. Can't wait for the warranty work to be finished and the M2 completed so we can get back on the road.

It's so hot in Texas the Habenero peppers are looking for a beer to sit in.

It's so hot that people destined for H3LL are leaving early because it's cooler down there.

Not saying it gets HOT in Texas, but I understand the rattlesnakes all carry water bags.

We are in Eastern Idaho near Yellowstone -- 49 this morning at 8am, and might have made it out of the 60's in mid afternoon. Forecast for tonight is 36. Haven't been able to wear my normal shorts and sandals for two days now and since my toes don't look good when they are blue, I AM READY FOR SOME HOT WEATHER!!!

Oh that shifting jet stream...we got 2-3 inches of rain last night. It has been wet and cool here in Vermont all summer. We have had a few days where it got up to 80.

Numbers is hard...
