August in Texas

"Damn the Sun! How long will it torment us?" 
-Guglielmo Marconi, radio man.  


While not strictly a comment on the Texas summer, it has a keen resemblance to the emotions of those of us living here.


This is my back porch. North side under the roof, in the shade all the livelong day. It tells no lies. 


It's hot even for Texas, we're setting records for electricity usages. Increased population accounts for some, part is due to the paradox of thrift... the more efficient our consumption becomes, the more energy we will harness.
