So this is our first "summer" in Texas. The first thing people tell you when you move from anywhere to anywhere else is that it's different. I got the speach from everyone under the sun about how hot it is in Texas. Well, I thought to myself, at least it's not humid. Being from DC & the east coast it's humid as hell. So I think to myself well 90 with 100% humidity is hot, how bad can 104 with almost no humidity be? Well, let me tell you, it's HOT, and not only hot but the sun is brutally intense. It's flesh scaldingly hot. I now know why "cowboys" wear those silly hats. Wow, if you're thinking of moving to Texas, do yourself a favor and come visit in June or July, you might think twice. I'm told by other transplants that I'll get used to the heat. I don't know about that. It's not so much the heat, but rather how intense the sun is. Plus it never seems to end, even on rainy days the sun is out. It's like living on another planet.
That's it for now, I'm off to feed the dogs and sneak out for a ride at my favorite trail.
