Record Heat/First Toad Gets a Name from Dragon Tales

Cool weather is dipping over the Rockies--the northern Rockies will have highs in the 30s and 40s. Most of the rest of the country will be very mild with highs in the 70s and 80s. The northeast and Pacific Northwest will be in the 40s to 60s.

Both Houston Hobby and Bush Airport in Houston had record highs of 90 today (breaking the old records set in 1963 and 1908 respectively). It won't be quite as hot Thursday, but it will be more humid and by Friday it will cloudy, warm and muggy. It will also be very breezy through the weekend.

I went to the Earth Day/3rd Anniversary celebration at the Weather Museum today. There were lots of students--many from MacGregor Elementary.

Hope you can come out and play.

Big news!!! Sarah and I found our first toad of the season tonight. We think it was a boy. Sarah named him Max after the little boy on Dragon Tales. Should we start up TOAD HUNTERS again? To see a clip on youtube, see our link at the right.
