Beat the Heat – Part I

Okay, so the 40 days and 40 nights of rain have ended… that means it’s time for the Mother of All Heat Waves! As we roll into the hottest month of the year, what are you guys doing to “beat the heat?” The obvious answer is “stay indoors,” but sometimes you just have to get out there. I’ve got something I do that helps me get through my days in the hot box:

thaiicetea_m.jpgEnjoy copious amounts of iced-beverages. Ice simply has to be the greatest thing ever to hit Texas. It can bring your once-sweltering sun-tea to a chill suitable for lowering your core temperature with your very first drink. If you are not into brewing your own… there are some excellent tea houses in town:
