Yeah, after that the nearest military bases are the one in Killeen or Shreveport. I don't remember enough about Killeen to write about it and I've only seen part of Shreveport. I'd do better to write about Alexandria (Virginia) or Colorado Springs.

No, you'd have to have been headed to Shreveport to have gone near here, but then you'd have taken a really roundabout way.

Not even close. We're in the are of Dallas, so we're almost in northern Texas.

Yeah, it's December and I could still go swimming in the lake if I felt like it and it would still be lukewarm.

It was 110 one of the days I was there...at 8pm. I'm used to the cool weather of Washington ...where the highest in summer is like 85. (Its probably higher than that...)

We had 90+ a couple times. And 100 a couple years ago. 103.

Yeah, it was like that for a week the summer I moved here. It was a bit of a shock coming down from Colorado. I have my window open now and it's fairly warm in my room with a fan running where in Colorado (or Virginia for that matter) I'd be freezing to death right about now.

Yeah. There was a heat wave while I was gone. I left before it started and got back at the tail end of it. Heh. I told one of the girls in my school that it was going to be one of the hottest summers since like the sixties and she didn't believe me. Heh. I go outside in 30degree weather in a Camus and short shorts and I'm fine. Though my feet were cold...

I wear a scarf when it's 60 I'm so used to the heat here. It's terrible.

Ohh, I know what that'd like. I used to live in Africa, near the equator and we were rapped up in blankets and had heaters when it was 75. When we came back to the states, in the winter mind you, we were in a freezer...
