Today it's 91 with a 44%humidity, Yesterday was 102 and humidity about the same.
Today feels much better. Will 11 degrees make that much difference or are we going nuts? :bounce:

I know that when it's been over 100 degrees in TX. for a while, if it drops down the the low 90's, it really does feel cooler.

11 degrees is a huge difference when it gets to extreme temps. We have hit the mid 90's a few times this year all ready and that is not usual for us. Combine that with high humidity and its way hotter than the 80's temps that we are more used to.

Low 90's and 50% humidity. I can deal with the heat it's the humidity I have a hard time with. Wears me out but the good thing is I'm done for the day. :)

Humidity has dropped some here, but it's 108 on my front porch right now. Not sure what shade tree the weather guru's have there's under, they say it's 104!

We had hotter weather several days ago here, but it was much easier to take than this high humidity! Bandana only soaks up so much sweat. Can't keep sweat out of my eyes. Even my eyelids are popping sweat! LOL

Power is out here, we have a standby generator and it didn't start. The battery cables are dirty, so I WILL be fixing that this weekend.
