Texas Weather



What did I say about hot tamale? I took a picture yesterday - June 3, 2008 at 4:57 pm of the thermometer mounted outside our breakfast room - in the shade with a nice breeze blowing. Yes ma'am - a hunnert degrees already. We had an unusually cool and rainy summer last year - don't believe we are getting a repeat on the weather. Before you ask - yes it feels hot, no I don't hate it, yes we do things outside even with the heat and it is easier because we get up very early. Early mornings are wonderful and evenings after sunset are absolutely fabulous. The hot dry winds have ruined my hanging baskets - I need to replant. Here is a gardening tip - put a disposable diaper inside your planters, pots - helps hold the soil and moisture longer. Didn't put a diaper on the hanging pots and they are pooped out (ha?) Will post something meaningful (maybe) soon -just wanted to give you the weather update from Buhlaland. Def hot tamale!

Ugh.. the temperature here has been around 90, but the humidity is also high now... it feels like a sauna when you step outside. There was not a dry thread on me when I came in from feeding this morning. (It was 7:30 am.)

Oddly enough - we don't have high humidity during the days - very stout winds lately so it isn't humid more blast furnacey!
