Hey everyone! Jennifer, Yasmine’s assistant, here with a blog post for you again.
During the course of the summer Yasmine and I tend to compare things like temps and rain fall levels for our different areas of the country. So I thought why not tell you all about what it is like to live in Texas during the summer.
Over the course of my life I’ve lived in several different parts of Texas. With a state as big as this one each region is varied quite a bit. I’m going to focus more on the region I live in currently which is considered the North Texas area for the purpose of this blog post.
My area like all of the state gets very hot in the summer. It isn’t unusual for our temps to reach the triple digits during summer, which we haven’t done this year yet. August is usually our hottest month so that could change. Drought is something we see most years as well, and we’ve been very lucky to have a fairly wet summer this year compared to previous years.
Due to all of this we, and everyone we know, find summer activities we can either do inside where the air conditioning is, or in the hours where it is cooler outside. About the only things I know my family will do during the hottest parts of the day outside are either at the pool, lake, or water park. We also don’t take our dogs out during the hottest parts of the day because if we don’t want to be out then they don’t need to be either. If we barbecue or grill out we try to do it during the cooler evening hours rather than during the hotter part of the day.
I like to use my popsicle molds to make frozen treats for my family to enjoy. I also have some molds to make dog/cat pops for my furbabies to get a nice cold treat too.
So this is a little bit about what it is like for me and my family in Texas. Tell me what is like in your area during the summer months and what do you and your family like to do to avoid the heat.
