Viola! I am so sorry to read of the loss of your daughter-in-law . So very young.   

Our temp has been over 100 every day since Friday, and more 100+ temp expected Monday.  Still not much rain, but maybe this week.  This is early to reach 100, even for San Angelo - I think we even beat AZ this year for first 100-degree day.  Friday was 102, Saturday and today, 106-107, Monday supposed to be 105 or so.  The rest of the week in the 90s.  Come on, rain.  

the worst part I think of this heat is that is was sooo very pleasant just a few days ago.  After that last storm I think we were 60s & 70s for a few days.  Didn't last long enough!




I saw on FB that Grandfield Oklahoma was 108 yesterday, Hollis was 106.  Ridiculous!!  We were in the 90's yesterday, it had been jumping from 40's to 80's, yesterdays low set a record at about 74.  Went straight from winter to summer.  At least we did get some rain, hope for a little more!!

We were under a flood watch up until a few days ago.  I emptied my rain gauge on Friday and it was totally full (5").  Now it is hot and windy and it will be 91 degrees today with high humidity.


I'm really hoping we'll get another week or so of mild before the month is over.  Fingers crossed this isn't really summer here at the start of May.  April and March were so nice!

It’s been over 100 here too and crazy humid. Time to rain already!

At least here in *this* SA, it's a little bit less humid than in the *other* SA.

People here sometimes comment on how humid it is.  It is to laugh.  Hah!  Don't tell me about humidity; I lived in North Texas for too long.  The air is nice and dry here.  Unfortunately, at the present time it's because we haven't had any significant rain in months.    

Yes, I went to Abilene on Tuesday and it was so cool, I wore my hoodie.  I had almost packed it away for the Summer.

Thinking of you today and hope your surgery is a huge success.  You are in my prayers.
