Hot! Hot! Hot!

by Mike Yeo on August 3, 2011

Here in Frisco Texas, we don’t do anything haphazzardly. We take everything to the max! That brings us to 32 consecutive days of 100 degree days or hotter.

This week has been the worst by far. I’m not sure if I’ve ever felt 108 or even 111 degrees in Frisco since I’ve moved here in 2000.

Our EXTREME HEAT WARNING is real. Many outdoor activities have been cancelled or moved indoors. Two-a-day practices for football begins this week. Not the best time in the world, I guess.

Stay hydrated, drink more water, whether you think you need it or not. Don’t forget the pets too. Don’t keep them outside for too long. Last year, my sister lost her dearest English Bulldog to heat stroke. He’s only been outside for 30 minutes.

The heat has really affected the way we live. Six Flags of Arlington is stopping Mr. Freeze from 3-7pm daily because it is one of the rides that produces most heat in the amusement park. The Dart Transit have been delayed because of the heat.

I’m not sure if I’m proud of the records we have been setting. The longest over 100 degrees is 42 days. Since Texas began recording high and low temperatures in 1898, the Dallas metroplex only reached 110 degree temperature 12 times.

It was 109 yesterday (August 1st), 108 (August 2nd and 3rd) and it gets “cooler” to 106 on Thursday (August 5th).

Sounds like a joke, huh?

It registered 111 degrees in my dad’s car this afternoon at 4:56pm.
