    Heading there on Saturday for a week.

    Having never been to the Lone Star State, just how bad is the heat there the first week of August compared to Fla., etc.?

    Thanks in advance.

    Good luck. I moved to central Texas last year in the August heat and it was unpleasant.

    Write & UT: Thank God I'm only there for a week, then!

    You'd better hope there's no hurricanes around. They don't do a good job preparing for them:

    I don't know about College Station, but if it's any comfort, Austin's having one of the coolest summer's one record... they're also all under water.

    I thought the entire state was having a really cool summer? We've only been in the 105-110 range a couple of times this summer, after having it for 20 consecutive days last summer.
  8. See, that's fucked up. I live in a southern state that's been 98, 99 for the last few months now and I thought that was hot until I got on a plane and landed in Texas. That's fucking hot.

    Well, in West Texas we have one thing going for us: little, to no humidity. Though there has been so much fucking rain this summer it has seemed humid to those of us not used to it. Plus, I have had to get use to mosquitoes again after leaving them behind in Idaho.
  10. True. It rained the other day and instead of cooling everything off I felt like I was in a fucking sauna.

    The first time it rained after I moved, I was thrilled. Surely, it was finally going to cool off, at least for a few hours.

    Not so much. It was so humid, it was like being steamed alive. I was dismayed.

    Go to Dixie Chicken. Repeatedly. Have Shiner Bock. Walk on the grass. Refer to the college there as "M&A" in honor of the Ags calling the college in Austin "TU." And bring two shirts for every day you'll be there because you'll sweat a lot.

    Oh and read that.
