Last week we had a brief hail storm in the middle of a 100F weather. And this is by no means totally unusual here in DFW -- another crazy thing of the Texas Prairie.

Sushi, here in Hurst, not only did we have hail, we also had near hurricane force winds that did much damage. I haven't seen winds that high since I left Louisiana.

We had a similar storm last week as well, though the central Phoenix area was largely immune. The heat island effect has reached the point that the heat prevents cloud forming so we're no longer getting any rain, even when the areas around us are. It was weird to see the rain collection in the suburbs with several inches and gail force winds, while we barely came up as trace in the city itself. The heat bakes off the clouds.

The last time I remember daytime rain was when I was a kid. Though the 120 degree heat is all too familiar...

You're all a bunch of pansies!

pansies?! I bet an earthquake would send you dashing tuck-tailed under the nearest table.

Yes, we Californians know to stand in doorways, not cower under tables....

Dry heat or not, when it gets over 110 it's crazy. I've been at the river (Colorado, of course) a couple times when it was 123-124 according to the digital thermometer in my truck mirror. It makes you wonder how ANYTHING can survive out there.

You should update your earthquake survival skills to the new millenium. The last thing you want is a door slamming into you during an earthquake -- and taking out your head, arms, legs, etc... Best to be in a hallway. You've got a nice space to cower in. And if the apartment collapses, at least you've got that wine to drink...

Hallway. Right. What possible benefit could there be to standing in a hallway as opposed to a doorway? I think I can stop a door. I know I can't stop masonry.

Best to run out in an open field.
