What a difference a year makes! By Jennifer Lopez

I know so cliché, but it is true.  This is my first taste of Texas heat, so I started looking back to find out if it is always this hot and this dry.  I looked back at last summer and found it was much cooler and wetter.  In fact, last July 28th the temperature got up to just 93, not 105 like yesterday.  Rain helped keep things cooler.  The bucket was full last summer; almost 16 inches fell during June & July.  Compare that number to 1.29 inches since June 1st of this year.  I have been here for six weeks and it has only rained twice for a total of about 30 minutes at my house.  You just look around and see the toll the lack of rain is taking on vegetation.  Looking ahead, most of the computer forecast models show dry weather holding steady over us.  Let’s hope we see some changes next month.
