National Get Outdoors Day

National Get Outdoors Day

Do you have plans today? I plan to pass by some trees on the way to urban activities.

I believe Texas has opted out of "National Get Outdoors Day" and substituted their own in, say, February. Memorial Day is the unofficial start of "Cocoon Yourself in the Air Conditioned House Season" which lasts for at least four months.

Forecast high temp today: 101. I'm celebrating one of many upcoming TGFAC* days.



*Thank God for Air Conditioning

Yikes. After the cold front that dropped some lightning, a few sprinkles and a tornado watch blew through here last night, the forecast high for today dropped from 101 to 99...

Guess if I lived in Texas I would pass out walking by trees, if there are any trees in that desolate land. In-laws are leaving their mid-90s climate and heading to the Hill Country as we speak; family reunions in June and people still drive there.

From the newsroom, update: In some parts of the country it's known as National Get Out the Doris Day.

Today is about perfect. Sixty-five right now and may get to 70. The sky is bright blue and the big Lake is still. Outside we go!

I'll get out today and buy groceries. Since it's windy, as usual, I can't wear a skirt because it would fly over my head.

Wearing long pants in Texas in the summertime is cruel and unusual punishment.

I think your inclusion of "long" in that statement must be a typo.

Florida has that same policy . You can go outside to jump in the pool or the gulf but otherwise it's inside with the AC going .

Hey! I live in Texas and had breakfast and lunch out on the deck. Had to have the fan on for lunch. Cool breeze off the lake helps. We will be able to do this well into July.

Its now a cloudy balmy 61 degrees with rain in the forecast. I'm going to work in the yard, followed by a graduation party, and then off to the local cruise night.

Good job in coordinating "get outdoors day" with the digital TV switchover. A TV showing snow instead of Deal or No Deal should help get the clueless outside.

Rustic, you keep spewing that Chamber of Commerce crap and we're doomed.
