I don't mind the Texas heat. Played 18 holes this morning. Now I am holed up inside watching the PGA Championship and drinking homebrew. To paraphrase "Only Maddogs and Enghlishmen go out in the Texas midday sun". I do like the picture, feel cooler just looking at it.

Heat what heat? Todays high is a all of 61`F and lows for the next week in mid 40`F, may get all the way up to 75`F later next week. FYI I live in northern Canada. But we leave next week for a trip south to Mississippi - I do expect that southern hospitalty being as wonderful as they say, they should arrange for tempatures no more than 80`F for this polar bear.

The temps down here on the Gulf certainly are warmer than your 61F. Sadly they are waaaayyy warmer than 61F. Like over 30 warmer. Be prepared.

I don't even want to think about winter. For me till hubby retires it means NO camping. I'm already dreading winter and just looking out the back door at the Roo. Dread it. HATE IT!

I don't like the heat, but I would rather mow grass than shovel snow any day of the week.
