What is the weather today in your area?
Here in Denver it's 94 degrees, and the swamp cooler is not cooling enough (as the water is too warm) in our house.

4. McAllen, TX
Hurricane warning (Dolly); expected to make landfall tomorrow morning just south of Brownsville and Matamoros, which means that here in McAllen we're expecting to be on the rainy northern side of the storm. It's just a Cat-1, so I don't think there's much danger from the storm itself, but the flooding in this low-lying delta region with semi-arid weather and little to no drainage infrastructure might be awful.

Other than that, the day sucked, lol...98 with 95% humidity, 102 heat index (-ish). No wind most of the day due to pressure changes offshore. And the power already went out once for an hour due to overload. (i.e., everyone coming home early from work and flipping ACs to high at off-peak time). :(

Cheers from S.TX!

11. Overcast, 68 degree's F and sticky.....
It's supposed to rain again today. It poured rain here last night and I mean poured!
No T-Storms though, like the night before last. It's the mugginess that's getting to me.
Everything is sticky. Ugh! I hate that feeling. Damp, sticky, muggy with gray skies.

15. Rain, rain, rain just like the last few days
Weather is never half-assed around here.

When it rains, it RAINS.
When it snows, it SNOWS.
When it's hot, it's HOT.
When it's cold, it's GODDAMNFUCKINGCOLD.
