This is the reason I told my wife we do not need a heater for our pool. Wow, that is graphic.

We've finally cooled down to the mid 80's after what seemed like a solid month of high 90's to low 100's. And it's been East Coast humid out here for some reason too.

Then if it does rain, you get a little bit of a break but the next day, it's so stuffy it's unbearable. It's times like these when I really have to rethink why in the hell I live in Texas.

Nuclear Winter) It was a legit 100ºF here, and it's only supposed to be hotter tomorrow. Wheeeee. -_- It's gotten to the point that our other reporter's trying to think of anywhere to go that's air-conditioned, and I had to suggest IKEA.
