Just came back from a trip to the barn, on the porch, in the shade, digital reading of 109.

People in the UK complain about the weather constantly.
Now if they had to put up with the sort of climatic conditions that people in Wimberley are currently experiencing, then they would truly have something to moan about.
Dallas has been in the news over here because of the Mosquito problem, seems Texas is due a respite.
In England it's a balmy 70 degrees and raining, everything is green and the gardens are looking great for the upcoming village fete.
It's a fete to celebrate the fact that the village church is a 900 years old this year.
I hope to return to the hill country in the near future when the weather's cools down a bit.

Not sure about the temperature averages over the past 10-20 years, but am pretty sure the last 4-5 years are setting a new standard. A focused view on trees stretching up RR12 to 290 east to Mopac over Barton Creek greenbelt reveals many, many, many dead trees. There's a fair amount of green, but the areas of brown are a real concern. It's probably a cumulative effect of poor rain totals for multiple years, but the effects seem more pronounced now than ever. Haven't heard much about aquifer levels this year, but the top-layer geographical features are are really suffering.

I have to believe that historical temperatures were measurably different to allow people to live here in years prior to A/C. With current highs of 100+ and lows of 78+ with few clouds and virtually no rain, I'm unsure how people existed here prior to modern conveniences.

Read an article recently about the advent of air conditioning and how the population of Texas, Dallas and Houston in particular exploded afterward.
