Texas Heat

It's HOT! Have I mentioned that the temps here have been 103 + for the past month here? It's HOT! Last night at 10:00 P.M. it was 100 degrees. Our A/C units have been getting a real work out.

We will be here at Lake Lavon for a little while longer before we move down the road again. We would love to head to Colorado and find a mountain with a few inches of snow. The problem with that is we are afraid the highway will melt right under us. The rail road tracks here are warping and the roadways are collapsing. I grew up here and have never seen anything  like it. You have to look hard to find green grass and there are dead trees all around us.

The local news reported that a record number of people have lost their lives due to this heat.

One thing that really scares me is fire. There are burn bans all over Texas but people throw lit cigarettes on the ground and people are careless when lighting grills.
