THE TEMPERATURE HAS REACHED 100 DEGREES AT BOTH HOUSTON AND
COLLEGE STATION THIS AFTERNOON...CAPPING OFF WHAT WILL GO DOWN AS
HOTTEST MONTH OF ANY MONTH ON RECORD FOR SOUTHEAST TEXAS. FOR
COLLEGE STATION...THIS IS THE 58TH DAY OF 100-DEGREE
TEMPERATURES...TYING THE ALL-TIME RECORD FOR MOST IN A YEAR SET IN
1917. THE TEMPERATURE REACHED 100 DEGREES A TOTAL OF 30 OUT OF THE

Are you seeing any smoke down your way? Glad to know that things are safe down your way. I really don't think my house or those around me are in much danger because we leave in a town (a small one) and there is brush all around.This morning we have tons of smoke and ash but it cleared out late in the morning. We now have it back again and the fires they thought were out are coming back aline.
