How you can tell it's HOT, even in Texas...

*The forecast looks like this:

Oops, call that the "pastcast"; I started this last week.

*Pool water feels more like bath water. Not refreshing.

*The lifeguards don't whistle at your kids for running...burnt feet are more of a liability.

*Your pet goes to the door and then just decides to hold it.

*Crayons sitting on a table in the playroom actually melt.

*You consider rearranging your playroom furniture so the kid's table is nowhere near a sunny window.

*Your girls wear their sunglasses inside just in case.*Your children notice shriveled up worms on the side walk. What a terrible way to go.

*The mosquitos head north.

*You actually buy and let your children consume "slow melt popsicles" hoping that whatever chemical gives them that property is not carcinogenic.

*You consider "gothic" as a summer decorating style. Blackout curtains and lights off mean cooler temps.

*When your children ask about a summer vacation, you mutter something about hasn't keeping the house under 80 degrees been enough? It cost as much as a vacation would.

*You risk blowing up the family car at the gas pump. Turn the engine off? Um, that would mean NO A/C. Oops.

*Your car is unusually cleaner because the kids are actually taking their things back inside for fear of them melting.

*The gummy vitamins that accidentally got left in the car turn to this...

*You are thankful these yummy treats seem unaffected by the heat.

Now if you could just figure out how to get yourself to the North Pole to enjoy them.

Cute post! It's hot here too...but I think it's hotter there! Hang in there, it will cool down some time soon...hopefully!

Hey Kerry,
Nick and I got a good laugh out of these. :-) It's nice to know that a true Texan even finds this heat insufferable!

Ugh...That sounds sufferable indeed. The melted gummies cracked me up. We never have temps THAT high, here in MA. Even on days that it is in the high 90's, it's not the high temps that bother me, it's the HUMIDITY. UGH. That, can make me miserable. Do you have much humidity in Texas? If so, with those high temps, I'm quite sure I would suffocate there.
