Houston...We Have a Problem...It's HOT!!!!!!!
HOW HOT IS IT?????????? It's DANG hot!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's almost 6 PM and it's nearly 102 degrees in the shade at my house (104 in the city of Houston)........add 53% humidity according to weather.com, which raises it another 10 degrees - I mean it makes it FEEL like 112 or 114!!!!!!
Just venting............but STILL knitting!!!!!!

That's one more reason I love Ft Worth! I have to laugh at anyone who complains to me about it being humid here...I just tell them to give Houston or San Antonio a try! Stay as cool as possible and keep your sense of humor handy

I'll be leaving WI tomorrow heading for Lubbock. I'm sure it'll still be warm when I get there. What can I say? I like the heat far more than the cold.

I really feel for you folks who live in hot weather. It got to about 74 here today, perfect!

If Congress passes Obamas Cap and Tax bill tomorrow, electricity rates will go up 75% (that's according to our electric company). When we lived in New Mexico, that would have precluded running our air conditioning.

Personally, I believe in doing everything I can to save electricity, but knitting and sewing by flashlight seems a bit silly.

I hate the heat, so I obviously won't be moving to Texas! That's HOT! Here in Michigan we've reached middle 90s, and the humidity is disgusting. I can't wait for fall!

It's really NOT the heat, it's the humidity.... REALLY! I've lived in S. and C. American countries without A/C. Well........I just won't complain about the cold anymore. Boy do I miss Canadian summers!

I hope everyone who voted for Obama without knowing what his agenda was, gets exactly what they deserve...unfortunately, those of us who were educated enough to vote against him will have to bear the burden of his socialist administration. Going "Green" will bankrupt this country for generations to come.

My biggest gripe is the fact that we have had NO rain. Everything in my yard is droopy and turning brown. What with the increase in electric bill from the a/c constnatly running, I am trying not to also add to the water bill and have just been spot watering where the droopiest plants are.
