And it’s not even summer yet


The temperature in North Texas is in triple digits already, and we’re still more than a week away from the start of summer.
The photo at left is a screen grab from my iPhone at 4:49 p.m. today. The forecast is for temperatures over 100 through Saturday.
The radio reports that the temperature is 106 degrees in Wichita Falls, about 120 miles north of Fort Worth.
God only knows what the temp will be on Aug. 27 when Wichita Falls hosts its 30th annual Hotter ‘N Hell 100 bicycle ride.
The event, always nine days before Labor Day, probably won’t have much trouble living up to its name this year.
No, I didn’t ride today.

  1. My cycle computer claimed it was 113F on the way home. It was actually quite pleasant out. You need to get out more!

  2. i have to ride every day that isn’t below 50 F! I don’t wanna feel guilty come winter time!

  3. 100+ degrees here in the Rio Grande Valley and no rain in site. At least the humidity has been lower than usual and makes the heat tolerable. Of course, riding early morning late afternoon also helps 🙂
