It's Hot in Texas

I changed my header to reflect the current state of weather in Texas. It's Sunday afternoon as I write this, and it's in the 90's, but also humid for some amazing reason. Actually there is a lot of water in the creeks and rivers still from all the rain in the Spring, so maybe that's the reason. Where I live in the Hill Country, the weather is about 6-7 degrees below that of either Dallas or San Antonio. So I will quit complaining. One has to do anything outside in the morning, then stay in for the afternoon...like taking a nap, for instance. We do have rain in the forecast for maybe on Monday, but more probably on Tuesday. I'll see it when the yellow shows up on the radar on my "Weatherbug" app on my IPhone!

And speaking of my IPhone, do you use yours as a camera a good deal? I'm amazed at how wonderful some of our pictures from our trip turned out from the IPhone.

River in Yellowstone



Lighthouse in the distance

Truly amazing gadget, it also helped us navigate right to our destinations with the internal map app. Watch for the lighthouse posts to come! Joining in to Jeanne's Blue Monday to share the beautiful blue skies in Wyoming and Oregon!

It's in the mid-80s even at 10 PM here. Keep hydrated, and keep out of the heat!

since I carry one of those flip phones with the large numbers, I'll keep carrying my Nikon. ;O)

Years ago I went to training in Dallas for 3 weeks in August. It was 105 every day.

I only use my camera phone to take something quick on FB. It does not turn out well for my tastes, but many people love their phone cameras.

I recognize the river in Yellowstone. My iPhone IS my camera! I would like to have a nice camera, but just have been used to using my phone because it's always with me. Your pics are lovely and if your temps are cooler south of Dallas, then yes, you definitely should not complain. 😉

Your shots are beautiful!

It's hotter than heck here in Florida. I had to take some papers to my bank this morning. I returned to my car and couldn't touch the steering wheel until the AC had been on for a while. So I drove without using the steering wheel. It was fun until the police officer stopped me. Oh, well. Try to stay cool.

Love,
Janie

When I think I'm too hot, I think of you and stop feeling sorry for myself.

It seems the country is sweltering right now. It's hot here as well, but at least it isn't humid. I pretty much stay indoors during most of the day. It does cool down in the evening quite a bit - I love that about where I live.

It's hot enough here in Ontario -- regularly in mid to high 80s and sometimes in the 90s and always humid.

Betsy Adams said...

Hot here in TN also --and we are SO DRY.... They say???? that we may get some heat-relief and some RAIN on Thursday. Hope so!!!!

I used my iPhone sometimes --especially when we are out walking. It does take pretty good pictures... However, on trips--I want my Canon.

The Tetons and Yellowstone are one of my favorite places in our country to see... We've been there twice and hope to go back in 2018..... LOVE it.

Hugs,
Betsy

Beautiful photos, and I find iPhone pics get better with each new phone. Those tiny camera have advanced so quickly. I remember rejecting the first digital cameras as the photos were too grainy for me. Not any more, although I wonder whether the images kept digitally will stand the test of time.

Temperatures across the world are on a rise, Linda.
Global warming is a reality.
The pics are great :)
