August & Lord Byron

Quote for the Week

Lord Byron

The handsome young poet, George Gordon Noel Byron, wrote:
The English winter—ending in July,
To recommence in August.

The weather has been so hot this summer that I'd welcome a little English winter commencing this month. Not going to happen. I went into the garage yesterday evening at 7:30, and it was 97 degrees. Simply no breath of wind anywhere. That's just not typical despite what some may think about the Houston area weather. This heat is more like Dallas than Houston.

Still, there's a reason they call August the Dog Days of summer, and that reason is heat.

Takeaway Truth

Fortunately, seasons change. If we can endure until the end of September, we'll see some lovely fall weather. Maybe.
