In which I abandon my plans to spend the day touring gardens in Fort Worth and Dallas, unable to contemplate another day outside in the heat and humidity. Yes, I'm a native Texan and thus painfully familiar with this weather. But "used to it", as more than one attendee commented to me? I know what they mean ... but ... but ... but!!! Oh, we certainly have a vast amount of experience with it. And we do indeed expect it, or more properly stated, we dread it. Like everyone else, though, we find it difficult to adjust to the kind of heat and humidity we've had over the past few days. Sadly, being acclimated rarely means we can tolerate it better than those who come from cooler climes! I'll bet Abby, the adorable pooch met on one of our stops, would agree.
