Summer has arrived in Texas… 1 month early! The temperatures reach into the lower to mid 90s and lows in the lower 70s. It’s only may. Normally (emphasis on the “normal” part), it waits until late June to get this high. Mother Nature must be pissed. Here I was enjoying the semi-decent weather. While the air conditioner was still running, it didn’t need to work as hard as the summer months. The air ran cool. Somehow, somehow, someone turned the heater on- full blast. One day it’s gorgeous enough to get out of the house and into the car, and the next your are filling your bathtub with ice cubes. That’s the power of the weather.
Being born and raised in Texas, you would think one gets used to 100 degree weather. Ha! Don’t make me laugh! (Okay… you did) That can’t be further from the truth. Every year, I dread the day when I have to shut and dark all of the windows. At times, it feels like a cave- just without these flying things:I’m surprised Dracula hasn’t shown up! I’m talking about the fictional blood-sucker- not the Vlad the Impaler from Transylvania. Frankly, I’d need a change of pants if either of them showed up. Talk about sleeping with one eye open. Great. Now I’ve just scared myself. I won’t get any sleep tonight. I must stop watching Ghost Hunters late at night.
So what was I talking about? That’s right… the heat. Let’s just say summer came early. I don’t know about you, but I’m moving to Antarctica to be with the penguins, polar bears, and ice! One second thought, diving into a pool of ice water might be safer.
