Yeah, before the storm. I went for a walk this morning. It was 73º in the house when I left. 73º outside. The humidity in the house was 46%. The humidity outside was about 1,000%. Yes, I am exaggerating - it was higher than that. (In reality, the outside humidity was 100%. I don't know how it can be 100% humidity and not be foggy or raining?) Not a lick of breeze. Couldn't get moving fast enough to create my own "apparent wind." (sailing reference)
The weather weasels are predicting a change to roll in around noon; thunderstorms, with wind gusting to 40 mph. No boat, so no hatches to batten down. We did, however, move loose stuff off our deck; brought in the cushions for the chairs; strapped the chairs to the table.
This morning, Joan made cinnamon rolls. Chili planned for this afternoon. Yep, we're ready. ;-)
This weekend was supposed to be the South Texas Balloon Festival - over 20 hot air balloons. Not good weather for this first time event in Mercedes (in the Rio Grande Valley).
