Not many people share my excitement. But it's a big deal. We need to be recognized for the hot hot summer we have endured. When we were one day short of tying for the consecutive days with triple digits I was disappointed. When we were days away from tying the record for the most triple digits in a year I held my breath. We were ONE day short of tying when it rained. We needed the rain desperately but it was such a disappointment. Then I remembered that there have been many years that it's been super hot for the State Fair. So I just had to sit back and wait. Today is the lucky day. 70 days of triple digits! I think tomorrow is supposed to be 102 so we've set a high standard. Then rain is in the forecast. I hope it comes. My yard is crunchy, and brown. We have three new trees that I water every few days, then I try and water a few beds.
Now we can say, "Remember the summer of 2011? It was the hottest, driest in the history of Texas." Wahoo!!
Now I hope relief comes.
Bitter sweet spring
