Howdy Starr. I weren't born in Texas, but ah sure did spend 27 of my almost 30 years there, right along the coast south of Houston, and in the scrubland around Abilene. I have to agree with your findings, but if you think 110 is hot, come on over to Arizona.
Here in Yuma, it ain't uncommon to hit 116. *btw, that ain't embarrassed, it's sunburn*
