Since moving to the USA, I have lived in Arizona and also California and to my memory the summers in both places are easier than the summer we experienced in Texas this year.
When I livd in Tucson, it was not unusual for the temperatures to be higher than 100F for long periods at a time....even at night. I also remember temperatures of 126F one summer. Even that seemed easier to live in.
Anyway, fall has arrived in Texas and the temperatures have dropped radically. It was a cool 40F this morning when I took the photo below of a tree where the leaves are starting to turn pretty color.
I never new it before, but I really miss Autumn.
