81F and humid this morning. Back and bladder woke me up. Dreams were unpleasant so I got out of bed much earlier than needed today. News is all the same as yesterday. I’m going back to bed. n

81F and 98%RH at 8am. HOT humid and wet in various places and degrees yesterday. Because the rain was from T-storm cells, it was pretty localized. There were a lot of cells, and they were spread across most of Houston, … Continue reading
