Hi George,
    Your temperatures are unbelievable! Our highs have been up to 87* and no lower
than 39*  The 39* only happened once. Last nights low was 50 something.
    What is strange about this is that I am in Central Texas, north and west of
George. I would think that our area would be cooler than SW Louisiana.
    Bastrop Co., Tx.
