Running out of the house to get the mail is an adventure this time of year. It's so hot right now that our bare feet on sidewalks will make us do that quick tip-toe dance that kind of looks like we're trying to sneak up on someone, and also looks a little like Elaine's Seinfeld …
Texas has 15 of the 30 hottest cities in the US, with more than 100 days each year above 90. Ouch! The hottest city in America has average temps of 106 in July. Any guess what city that is? And see what Lufkin's average summer temp should be.
After all the rain and thunderstorms last week, it's nice to see the sun and 90 degrees this week. And we know 100 isn't far off. Summer in Texas is great for hanging out at pools and lakes, but there are things to watch out for too. Here's our big heads up.
