Same here. We may have severe weather Sunday. I haven't pulled all the plant out of the patio hoop yet.

Yesterday, I hit Lowes and filled the trunk with asst. plants! They had lots that I didn't need, but I couldn't let them die! Hope to get them planted tomorrow.

We have AC running upstairs and down because of the heat, but also because of all the oak pollen. The windows are yellow with pollen. We need a good rain storm, with no hail, of course!

We had a high of 96 today. I think that qualifies as stinkin' hot! It will only be 94 tomorrow. Should cool to the high 70s by Tuesday. What happened to spring? Confused

Only made it to 89* here just outside of Houston. Was definitely warm and could feel the humidity being oppressive.
