Wild!
I'm hoping for a better day today as I leave for the coast this afternoon.
Wow ... I hope the weather settles down so you can have a good weekend on the coast.

We're rainy and in the 50s again today. The sun is supposed to come out (maybe) this afternoon, but it isn't forecast to get much warmer. Not like June at all---I feel cheated. Someone owes me a few warm, summery days. I know some of you in the hotter areas would be glad to contribute!

We usually just skipped lunch rather than go out. Thankfully I traveled a lot so I got to escape it some but my poor wife was stuck with the heat. Its doesn't even cool off at night. I remember going to a Rangers game at old Arlington Stadium. The game went extra innings and the scoreboard showed the temp being 96 at 10:00 at night.
Makes you wanna cry, doesn't it? I am jealous of those who can actually enjoy outdoor summer activities in other states. Cooking out can be miserable but we attempt it! Not only at dusk is bad, sometimes at 8 am is horrible. I have tried to take the kids to the park that early and they are dripping from sweat within a few minutes. I have gone to some Rangers games too and not too pleasant. We have Six Flags season passes and usually just skip the summer, go in the spring and fall. It is what it is! Some say we should move but I am not going to leave my family behind so I will just "tolerate" the heat, sorta!

Okay, I will stop whining now but I know you lived right here where I am at and understand. =)

TGIF everyone. After some heavy thunderstorms yesterday afternoon, we are looking at a couple of nice days. The forecast high today is 79 today with a low of 52 tonight. During the summer here is it still cools off at night, our lows are usually in the mid to upper 50s.

Saturday we are making the 3 hour drive down to see my parents for Fathers' day. My brother and I are taking Dad to see a minor league baseball game in Charlotte. My son is also going so we will have 3 generations there. Baseball and family vacations are the only really good things about summer.

Have a blessed day and weekend everyone.

Not so fast, CAH...I want to donate some, too!

I don't think we're very far from each other. If you're in the DFW area, we're only about three hours away. Can you imagine living even farther south, in Houston or around that area? I bet it's even worse!
