Every day of the last five has set a new record for the high temperature in Victoria, TX, and always in triple digits.
Doesn’t Mother nature realize this is the last week in September? In four more days it will be October, for crying out loud! That’s Autumn! It’s time for cool fronts and windbreakers. Golf should be played this time of year in long pants and sweaters. But we’re suffering in shorts and tees.
Thinking back (but not very far – as Carol will tell you my memory is suspect for any time much past 15 minutes ago), it seems as though it was all the way back in May of this year that I created my now-standard joke about the “Hades Index” and wrote my poem about finding Satan vacationing in Texas, but deciding to go home where it would be cooler!
(I’m still proud of that poem and of the Hades Index idea. If you missed it I’ll be happy to run a reprise!)
This area was supposed to get a “cool front” on Thursday to bring the daily highs all the way down to the LOW 90s (Woo-Hoo!!), but now the forecasters are saying it might stall out before it reaches us. Wonderful.
So, Robin, or Hamel, or Katie B., or even you, Mike, please send us some of your cool weather down to South Texas. We NEED it!
Oh, and one more brief note on yesterday’s post about my stolen identity...
Nankin, the same thought DID occur to me yesterday, and yes, I DID call Discover Fraud Prevention back using the 1-800-DISCOVER phone number that’s guaranteed to be the real deal. I confirmed that it WAS them that called and not some scammer.
Good thought, though. Thanks!
