HOT?Posted: June 28, 2009 Filed under: Random Thoughts | Tags: baltimore, drought, houston, summer, weather 2 Comments »
Okay, So I knew it would be hot in Houston when I moved here. Maryland can have some pretty brutally hot and humid days in late July and August so I just kept telling myself that summer in Houston would be a lot like July/ August in Baltimore. I was wrong! I have lived here for a month now and I have not seen a drop of rain and we have been experiencing record braking temperatures. Today the temperature was 103 and the current temperature outside at 11pm is 86 (at night)! It is hard to want to go out during the day because it is so hot. I hate to drag Cooper along with me because I am afraid he is going to sweat to death. So I guess summer in Houston is a lot like winter in Baltimore, you just stay inside. I must admit, I like the idea of not having a heavy winter here! I guess a heavy summer is not so bad, but just not for my warm blooded family members like my dad, sister, and Cooper.
For my friends and family in Maryland, I hear you were having some cold rainy weather. I would be happy to share some of the heat and drought with you all 😉 I hope the weather starts to warm up and the sun comes out soon so that you can all head outside or to the beach and enjoy yourselves. At least the weather will not be so hot that you feel like you have to hide inside.
We were just in San Antonio and it was hot and humid! But everthing is air conditioned- so that is nice! Besides, you can brag when winter comes!
I distinctly remember someone saying that it was basically impossible to go out during the day in Houston.
