Re: just checking

We had a couple cool fronts blow through, dropped the temp below 100 for a  
day or two, down to 98 and 99.  San Antonio and Austin have 60+ days  
straight of over 100 temps.   We haven't even seen 100's here in  a couple years, 
much less ever starting in June!  Definitely above normal,  and a long 
summer.   Was a killer (literally, lost two of my oldest  dogs to the heat 
unfortunately), but thankfully now we finally (YEAH!!!!  after 10 months) were 
able to have the new roof installed, and  with a new A/C, we should be 
somewhat cooler.  So now we just have to  get the cielings in, rooms painted, new 
flooring, and we'll be back to  normal....well sort of.  Then new siding and 
porch cover put back  on......but getting the house back together is such a 
As for the garden, we've been lucky and had rains here on and  
off.....although much less than usual (thankfully for us, without a  roof).....but the 
plants don't look bad at all with regular  watering and the occasional rains 
and humidity.  We are  so very fortunate not to have water rationing in this 
part of Tx.  unlike San Antonio and Austin, that literally are to the stage 
of not allowing  restaurants to serve water unless requested, and fines of 
$1000's for misuse of  water.  Afraid to do a rain dance though, don't need 
anymore storms.
  I finally feel like I can come up for air and breathe this month,  first 
time this year.  Nothing like finally feeling like things are going  in a 
positive direction.  So happy to hear about your good news too  Gene.
