Survivng Texas Heat . . .

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,
~Sandra

Love the new digs, Sandra. Black seems cooler somehow. Like night, which isn't much relief around here anymore, is it?

Stay cool :)
