    1816: a snowstorm struck the northeastern U.S., heralding what would become known as the ďYear Without a Summer.Ē
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Sounds to me like the "climate changed" for this to happen and then the "climate changed" back all in a few years.

    During one of my visits to DFW about 10 years ago, the "lowest" high temperature was 103 over a four day period. Granted it was July.

    The Summer of 2011 was brutal, and I hope to never endure another one like it again. May temperatures were like August. It was a record setting very long hot Summer. My yard was burnt to a crisp.

    During my onshore assignments as a well logger I was advised and it was proven that the magic number was 2 am. Thatís either when the home phone rang telling you to get it in gear or that was what time to be at the shop or at the well or what time the well would be ready or what time the job was over with or or or or...
    Until July 1972. Then it was 2 pm. The month of July did not have a day in Wichita Falls Texas less than 110 deg F as a high and most nights were above 90. I came close to losing an operator to heat stroke on one job but noticed he had quit sweating so we put two beers and a quart of water in him in the next 20-30 min.
