ACL avoidance, tropical division

It didn’t seem that hot in the shade of the buildings down on Sixth Street. The T&T number (476-7744, courtesy of the Fox TV station) reported 108 degrees a while ago. Can that be true? Apparently so; the National Weather Service special statement for today confirms very high temperatures. The Shiner beer thermometer reached its highest mark of the summer, 85 degrees, today, just a while ago (the walls keep getting warmer even though the sun’s getting lower; but the house lags behind outdoors in heating up in the mornings). This is the official record-keeper for our dwelling, which lacks air-conditiioning. It’s not in the kitchen, always the warmest room, with the pilot lights on the gas stove, but it’s not in the coolest room, either, since it’s near a transom kept open all summer long and some drafty French doors. So, we haven’t seen the last of summer heat. Not this year. Not yet.
