It didn't take long for summertime to arrive in Waco. With temperatures in the mid-to upper-90s this week, I am longing for the unseasonably cool temperatures and torrential downpours that we experienced in late May and early June (well, maybe not the torrential downpours!). Stay hydrated and wear sunscreen – 100-degree temperatures will arrive before we know it!
