It's still raining here and has been all day. I'm watching live TV news report right now showing a guy a few miles away stuck in a tree awaiting rescue. There have been over 70 high water rescues in San Antonio alone today - not to mention Corpus Christi and Houston and everything in between. It's a lot cooler today but with the freeways closed right now, there's no place to go!

HOT, HOT, HOT! Broken records all over the place. Temps are about 15-17 degrees over normal for this time of the year.

Had some "front" come through about 7 p.m. that brought high winds and lower humidity. Not much else. At least enough relief for our outside kitties to have some fun playing.

10 p.m. news still says we're in for a hot, pressure cooker couple of days. UGH!

Warm, muggy, and humid. Had some torrential storms hit while at the g-store, that was fun. Intermitten showers as a result of the outer arms of hurrican Erin. Love the rain!

I wish you could send me some rain. A brush fire broke out last night and burned 3 acres on the main road. It is so dry I am surprised that everything hasn't burned up.

in the mid 90's here today and wet in most of Texas from Tropical storm Erin coming through. Has been a mild summer this year. Only hit 100 a couple of times so far.

It was 75 degrees, dry and sunny today, and tonight it's much cooler and raining a bit with some occassional thunder and lightening. Suppose to be only in the 60's tomorrow.
