Ya know a few days ago while we were sittin here waitin on rita, the weather channel forecast said we were gonna cool off, sunday highs in the 80s monday highs in the 70s. Just turned on the weather channel and they've got all of our area under an extreme heat advisory. :?
Any of ya'll up north wanna get windy, feel free and blow some of yer cooler temps down this way.
The 1/2 inch of rain we got from rita dried up almost immediately as we had a dry hot wind out of the west saturday afternoon and yesterday.

I"m so ready for winter. (Winter in east texas usually means rain and mud, but that's ok with me)

Yup that just might take his mind of his reason for being there :D I sure wished I would have talked to rancher's dog before I made my winter plans,he has a dog that predicts weather, and I would bet a fat steer he does it a helluva lot better than some of these weather people,could have saved a lot of diesel and seed,Well I got chores in town today and too hot to get too serious so guess Ill get moving ,time Im finished, itll be time to stop by the sisterdale saloon,talk weather ,cattle who knows I might run into that canadian hussie again :wink: ......................good luck

And all those TX evacuees are driving back home in that 101 heat- to homes without a/c probably. That was hard to watch on tv this AM. :cry:

Thank Goodness we got power!!!! And yer right there are those that are goin home in this heat, I just hope the highways dont get stuck like they did leavin out. If they'll do it in the orderly fashion they were asked it should be ok i'd think. Houston didnt have much damage so the biggest majority of em should have power soon if not already. I know our local electric coop said they were goin to get us back up before they left the area to go help others. So hopefully that's how they've all planned to work. Not that the others dont deserve power too, but get the easy stuff out of the way first then deal with the biggest messes.

I got alot of things I need to do in town too, but with no fuel in any of the service stations them chores will hafta wait. I'm not gettin too far from home till I know I can fill back up.
