Our Welcome to Texas — Six Word Saturday —

It's been hot here in Texas

Coming back from Iowa the first week of June our car thermometer registered 100°F as soon as we hit Texas.

It has stayed right around, 100's and high 90's ever since. Highs were running in the 70's in the Midwest.

Besides that we are in the middle of a bad drought. Crops have died, lakes are empty, our forests are burning, and we have a state-wide burn ban. The latter means there were very few 4th of July fireworks. Our usually nice fireworks display got cancelled for this year.

aww... hope rain will visit there soon...

visiting from 6WS!

hope to see you!
Quite happy to swap with you and send some of our cold, rainy weather in exchange for some heat.
Bummer on the hot weather and no fireworks :( (Found your blog from Six Word Saturday)
Stay cool!
It's sensible not have fireworks, but a shame.
I wish you lots and lots of rain (you don't often get the chance to mean that in a nice way).
Hot and dry is no fun! We're getting some much-needed rain today, but it's supposed to be back in the high 90's next week...

We've been "smokey" all week from area wildfires.
been overly warm here in illinois as well come see me at
We live in Kansas and it is in the 100's. Yesterday 108. 100's in the forecast for several days ahead. Yikes! I think I will be staying inside in the AC.

Sorry about the drought and that there was a fireworks ban in your area. But it makes many fires from them.

I hope rain will come to us and to you all there in Texas too!
Hi Jim ~~ I am sorry you are having such high temperatures and drought.
We are very familiar with that.
I am glad of no more physio visits.
I also remember when 40 was old and like you, don't remember much about being 40. Glad you enjoyed the jokes.
Take care - only a week until your knee surgery. How the time gets away.
I hope all goes well for you my friend. Regards, Merle.
Hot here as well - I think we have a 100* day in our near future.

Thanks for playing 6WS!
I can't stand weather that hot! I hope it cools down by you soon :)
