I meant CA has nice weather. I don’t know about Texas.
They are going to be voting in Texas too. Watch out.
Yeah. They are going to bring on the very problems they fled from in the first place.
It was sure nice today. Huge change from the -2 in February, although I know the 116 degree days are coming, possibly even as high as actually 120 to 122, although the "official" highs are only shown as around 112 to 113. They take the measurements over a watered manicured lawn, which can reduce the measured temperature by a good 15 degrees or more.
Some of us with logging temperature measurement hardware have captured readings of 50c several times over the past 5 years. That is 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
But it's a dry heat. So you sweat out a gallon per hour and have to drink at least that much to just stay hydrated.
Unless they learn something else from living in Texas.
Or use AC and stay indoors. I’m wondering how Californians who end up in Montana deal with those kinds of color temperatures every winter. The sad part is that those emigrants to cheaper places are pushing prices of everything uo to levels that previous residents can’t afford. I know family who moved from an overpriced home in a blue state to a low priced city, paid cash for a nicer house and still had most of their profits left over, maybe 5-6 years ago. Prices in their new area have risen so local residents can’t afford homes anymore.
It was $2.47 @ Sam's today when we went. 7-11 was $2.59. This is in Plano TX., suburb northeast of Dallas
We haven’t seen $2 gas in a while.
It’s less than $4 but still too high.
