Life in Central Texas (New adventures of larrybl)

I guess I needed a new starting point too with the new place and all, so here it is. Too HOT to do anything right now, and dodging welcomed rain storms. I was able to load the last of the bricks and old steps up using BOH and the calico trailer. Craftsman's are under the pergola for the night. Plan tomorrow to place the wider steps at the back entrance till I can get to building the deck.

Re: Life in Central Texas (New adventures of larrybl)

No grass mowing this Month either. This is at 6:00pm in the shade, and 8' - 10' above the ground. I guess I need a new thermometer, this one is running out of numbers.

Re: Life in Central Texas (New adventures of larrybl)

Another HOT one. I guess I'll find out how efficient the new house is when the electric bill comes in. I really need to get the blinds up this weekend. In the shade at 5:30. More to come!

Re: Life in Central Texas (New adventures of larrybl)

Look again! 108* this weekend, gets in the 100's Wednesday. That 20% chance of rain means the humidity is coming back and the heat index will be high!

Re: Life in Central Texas (New adventures of larrybl)

It's a shame that I am sitting in the Man Cave at 90* and it feels comfortable because it is 111* outside right now.

Hey Larry congrats on the new home, it's a beauty. Btw, I can relate to the temps; wife had our thermostat set at 82 when I came in from mowing today and it chilled me to the bone after leaving 100+ & high humidity outside..lol.

Re: Life in Central Texas (New adventures of larrybl)

Spent some time in the pool with my Grandson. I left the shower up from our New house replacement. Decided to take some measurements with my HF Multi meter which has the Temp function in Celsius. Readings taken at 7:30 pm.

Pool Temp 29c = 84.2*

Ambient Temp 35c = 95.0*

Re: Life in Central Texas (New adventures of larrybl)

I used this morning to put up a new outside antenna, then put up new blinds on most of the windows. My R knee became swollen with all the ladder work. Taking it easy the rest of the weekend.

Re: Life in Central Texas (New adventures of larrybl)

Too HOT to venture into the pool at mid day. Temps taken at 2:30 today.

Ambient in the shade 39c / 102.2*
Ambient in the sun 43c / 109.4*
Pool temp 30c / 86.0

Maybe after the sun goes down.
