I just watched the map on the Weatherbug elite app on my phone. It looks great out to the west and then as it gets closer to home.....poof!! It fuckin' dissipates to nothing. Grrr. I've seen this movie too many times.

Visit TXJames - Tuesday Aug 16th

Okay, I spoke with Mr2mch. We're meeting at 6:30ish at Uncle Dan's BBQ (see map below) for dinner and then we'll go the hospital from there. If we get a big group, it might be better to have some people visit James before dinner and others visit him after so we can spread that sunshine around.

We're not locked in to Uncle Dan's. If we want to have a big discussion about where we should eat, I'm ok with that. Basically its about visiting TXJames and seeing you (yall). The food, beer, and getting that crap from Ghost is all just icing on the cake.

Ghost, are you coming or where can I meet you to get those crash guards and windscreen from you?

Post up here if you're planning on being there so we have some idea of headcount.

Got rained on for the last 50 miles home today. Cloud cover all the way from Junction to home.

It was 71 degrees.

That is all.

I meant it in the nicest possible way.

Ok, I'll fix it for everybody.

Oh, and the glory days we'll be talking about will be this fall. I sincerely hope Fall 2011 is better for me than last fall.

Don't get spoiled. Summer isn't over yet. This was your first summer in TX, right? Man, you got "the mother of all summers" as your first one. Next years will be better.

Well, Glenda got a new bike so we took advantage of a cool, cloudy day (no rain) and went riding around Milano. Seemed like the last few weeks' weather were a distant memory.

here in comal etc counties we're so accustomed to the absence of moisture and the unending 100+ temps... when it gets "down" to a mere 100, I turn down my a/c... and I'm not kidding. I do a bit of work and exercise regimen outdoors most days [and the gym I go to in san marcos is HOT... ], I can feel "cool" with my home AC set at 79. at 78 i reach for the covers at night...

A lot of people seem shocked that I keep my A/C at 80-85. Heck, when I was in upstate NY I only heated to 65-78 normally.

At in our office, which is over cooled for the equipment we have, there is a certain room that gets down to 64. I keep a jacket to wear in the office.

Yeehaw! only hit 97 in Austin today. The new streak starts tomorrow though.

We had cloud cover and I got out a little bit, but the heat snuck up on me. Came home and drank water for a while and it was still a couple of hours before it wanted back out.
