New record high set at DFW: 101 degrees. Hottest April day ever. More heat tomorrow, then a cool front will bring temps back down to seasonal normals (mid to upper 70s), along with a chance of much needed rain.
puddl'ling into a
gelatinous lump of flesh sans
bone, limp as a rag
on this scorching hot
day, melting into the pavement
as the sun beats down,
down upon my head,
lungs exhaling precious moisture
into the desert-
dry air surrounding
me, i walk home from work ...
gives me no choice but
to beat the street with my feet ... in
all kinds of weather.
hot ... cold ... it doesn't
matter; gotta do what you have
to do in order
to survive. doesn't mean
i have to like it ... i really
do hate days like this.

|Seems as if you only get the extremes, sounds just as bad as the storms. We hope that you'll get a break soon and can just enjoy a nice, mild day!
