CAN YOU SAY SWELTERING?
HERE IN TEXAS WE CAN!
WHAT DO WE DO WHEN TEMPERATURES SOAR OVER 100 FOR TWENTY STRAIGHT DAYS?
CALL EVERY FRIEND -- AND SLIGHT FRIEND THAT WE KNOW THEN OFFER BEER AND BAR-B-QUE UNTIL SOME ONE'S WILLING TO TOTE THE NOTE TO PUT GAS IN THE BOAT AND HEAD FOR THE LAKE. Oh, and boat size doesn't matter -- as long as it runs under its own power (no rowing allowed) then the boat is fine for a day on the lake.
Of course, it is way better if the person we've swindled into toting us to the lake happens to own a ski boat because to survive Texas sun, large doses of water are required!
To endure blistering temps, this is good
but . . .
This is much better. Remember, in Texas there is no such thing as too much water!
When outside fails us, then we look for cool indoor sports:
A little indoor manufactured chill.
Indoor cinema works too!
Something hands on!
Or a quiet afternoon in the library will help turn the temperatures down.
Bottom line to managing triple digits in Texas is to stay cool and wish for winter:
Drop by anytime -- just don't look for me on the porch -- it's too blessed hot!
Until next time,
