Another sleepless night, could not reconcile sleep until sometime after 8:30 a.m. fortunately fell into a deep slumber until 1:30 p.m. I have a lot of errands to run but by that time of the afternoon it is much too hot to go out even in an air conditioned vehicle. We reached 102 degrees, 39 Celsius.
I am not one that likes to drive at night but I made an exception and went to the P.O. Box and HEB at 9:00 p.m. this evening and it was still stifling hot. Actually I had no choice as tomorrow begins the Tax Free Weekend in Texas. No taxes on clothing, shoes, backpacks and school supplies on items up to a certain dollar amount. You can bet your bottom dollar you wont find me anywhere near a store this weekend...parents and kids can have it to themselves.
Sorry for not having posted gasoline prices lately. This is the going price pretty much all over town but bear in mind that if you have an HEB gift card you get to take an additional .11 cents off of the price...so regular gasoline would be $3.12 per gallon and $3.51 for diesel.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
