New Texas resident, or why Yankees don't move there.
Just moved to Texas. Now this is a state that knows how to live! Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. Mountains and deserts blended together. What a place! Watched the sunset from a park lying on a blanket. It was beautiful. Iíve finally found my home. I love it here.
Really heating up. Got to 100 today. Not a problem. Live in an air conditioned home, drive an air conditioned car. What a pleasure to see the sun every day like this. Iím turning into a real sun worshipper.
Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today. Lots of cactus and rocks. What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing for me. Another scorcher today, but I love it here.
The temperature hasnít been below 100 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least itís a dry heat. Getting used to it is taking longer than I expected.
Fell asleep by the pool. (Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body.) Missed two days of work, what a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson though: got to respect the olí sun in a climate like this.
I missed Tabby (our cat) sneaking into the car when I left this morning. By the time I got out to the hot car for lunch, Tabby had swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and exploded all over $2,000 worth of leather upholstery. I told the kids she ran away. The car now smells like Kibbles and crap. No more pets in this heat!
Dry #@*&$!% heat, my butt. Hot is hot!! The home air conditioner is on the fritz and AC repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he needed to order parts.
Been sleeping outside by the pool for three nights now. $1,500 in damn house payments and we canít even go inside. Why did I ever come here?
115 degrees. Finally got the air conditioner fixed today. It cost $1,200
and gets the temperature down to about 90. Stupid repairman peed in my pool. I hate this #@*&$!% state.
If another wise ass cracks, ďHot enough for you today?Ē Iím going to tear his #@*&$!% throat out. Damn heat. By the time I get to work the radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I smell like Roasted Garfield!!
The weather report might as well be a damn recording: Hot and sunny. Itís been too hot to #@*& for two damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week. Doesnít it ever rain in this barren damn desert?
Water rationing has been in effect all summer, so $1,700 worth of cactus just dried up and blew into the #@*&$!% pool. Even a cactus canít live in this heat.
Welcome to Hell!!! Temperature got to 123 today. Forgot to crack the window and blew the #@*&$!% windshield out of the Lincoln. The installer came to fix it and said, ďHot enough for you today?Ē My wife had to spend the $1,500 house payment to bail me out of jail.
Worst day of the damn summer. Iím not leaving the house. The #@*&$!% monsoon rains finally came and all they did is to make it muggier than hell. The Lincoln is now floating somewhere in Mexico with its new $500 windshield. Maybe it will wash out that dead cat smell.
That does it, weíre moving to Michigan for some peace and quiet.
