100 degree difference over 6 months
 
If we actually hit 109 at my house this weekend as forecast it will be official. During that one real cold snap we had my thermometer registered 9 degrees. Texas! ;)b Stay cool everybody!

Forecast is calling for temps of 110+ for the northern half of the state this weekend. And thats the actual temp, not the heat index.

Similar to 2011. In feb 2011, Lubbock recorded a low of -12, by June 15th we saw a high of 112. I remember both well, in feb I was working in cotton gin office in Childress, the pipes froze, highs struggled to reach 0. That day in June I was building a playground in the backyard for my son!

Definitely crazy!!

That's normal in Yankee country ;-)

Being born and raised in Iowa it'd 0 or below for weeks or months in the summer it'd be 90° & 90% humidity.

To me that was "normal".
After moving to Texas I learned a new "normal".
HOT & not as hot[emoji16]
If it's not HOT just wait it'll get there :-)

Working at the gin in Childress, there is a pretty good chance you have met my FIL. His name is Kenneth Ellis.

100 degrees isn't too bad where I am from. We usually swing ~120. This past winter, it was -30 at Christmas, and last week it was 98.

Regardless, its hot!

Does he work for the Gin or was he a producer that was up there drinking stale coffee :D

For what it may be worth, both the NWS and the Farmer's Almanac are predicting slightly below normal temps in August. That's still hot of course, but maybe it will not be a long string of 100+
(fingers crossed emoji)

IDK about the coffee. But he is there pretty regular and at one point was on the board, but that has probably been a couple of years. He is in his mid-80's, doesn't produce much cotton anymore, mainly ranches now. Stays pretty up to date and involved in things though.

Local 6 o’clock news yesterday showed a middle school in Ft Worth register 112 & was still showing 108 at 6pm

ttaxidermy 07-19-2018 02:56 PM

I was going to go work at the lease this weekend but I'm staying home.. Calling for 107-109 in Brady as a high... It just ain't that important..

Not good. If ya need anything, I ain't far.

Dale Moser 07-19-2018 03:18 PM

I got parts today, hopefully there's nothing else wrong that I didn't see.

The only thing stopping any kind of weather in Texas is a barbed wire fence.

Dale Moser 07-20-2018 12:32 AM

Replaced the capacitor, the other little booster deal, and all the wires that the old capacitor melted when it caught fire. Turned on the AC with the house at 89 at about 6, it's at 78 now. I cut it off for 20 minutes to let it "rest".

Maybe I won't have to sleep in the workshop on my cot again.
