  1. Texas is paying for the overly wet and cool spring, a week of 100°F+ temps with another week in the forecast and it has not rained in about 3 weeks. oh well, August in Texas.

  2. the Bulletin of Atomic Scientist moved the Doomsday Clock up two minutes to Three Minutes to Midnight.

  3. ugh, fighting a bout food poisoning.

  4. Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans.

  5. You know you're tired when you see the forum thinking particles and read it Drinking Particles.

  6. On this date in 1836, the Texian Army under General Sam Houston defeated the Mexican Army of Santa Anna in the Battle of San Jacinto paving the way for Texas to become an Independence country, the Republic of Texas.

  7. will this winter never end? We had a 45°F temperature swing from sunday morning to sunday evening, it was 70°F in the morning then dropped to 25°F before midnight and stayed in the 20's all day and this is in SE Texas. I feel for those in the northern tier states.

      man, we had an ice storm this morning with about 1/4" ice on the roads. we aren't really prepared for such things but hey the office is opening 3 hours late with no time docked. :-)

      While a 1/4" of ice on the road is a walk in the park for us in the Cleveburg area, I agree Bob, it hasn't been this cold this long in a while. It's zero degrees F here now!

      even for us down here it has been a longer, colder than normal winter. the last 4 months have been colder by 5° than normal.

  8. Finally, the temps are slightly above normal, the low 70's. it has been a "cold" winter for southeast texas with Nov - Jan being 3-5 F below normal temperatures

  9. wacky weather. in the space of an hour and half it went from 45 with misty fog to 70 then back to 45 with more misty fog.

      Yeah, loud, fast and usually a bit of bumping into each other. Great to watch live or on TV.

  19. strange dream, I dreamed I was in a Chevrolet full sized car and when I turned it off hydraulic arms lifted the motor up and out of the motor compartment as an anti-theft device. HUH? so weird

  22. My kid opened his own TaeKwonDo school, now the old man is expected to participate. ugh the things we do for our children. invest in Advil stock LOL

  23. I have a new addition to my home, a beautiful 8 year old calico cat, rescued from a shelter. Tookie is getting used to her new home and change of scenery. It'll take time and patients, I have pleanty of both.

  24. I have been watching Downton Abby and find it really good TV, or at least on American TV. Well written and acted. It does raise some questions; would the Lord of the mannor really care so much for a member of the staff?

  25. the temperature dropped 25 degrees F in 15 minutes along with a very strong winds
