That's what I was thinking - I remember our first summer in Arizona in 1969 - coming from the Seattle area, anything above 80 was hot and there I was HOPING that it would get down to the low 90s at night! Quickly learned that towels were in the car for covering steering wheels, that it only took 2 hrs before the sun tea was ready, that the apartment pool is the perfect temperature for midnight swims, you always take a sweater to the movie theatre or the mall because it was 110 outside and 70 inside and many, many more.

Dallas/Ft Worth is that bad, high temps second only to Phoenix. I have seen roofers quit at 2 because the shingles would melt. Asphalt will stick to the shoe.


When we were in Tyler, I was involved in a lot of campus construction projects. They kept asking if I didn't want to come watch them pour concrete at 3:00 am - with ice in the mix to keep it from setting up until they got it on site! :lol:
