Skywatch Friday-Carnival in town

The carnival is in town for the weekend.  They set up last night and were open for a while.  The official opening is tonight.  More Skywatch Friday sites are here.

No change in the weather, yesterday was hot, today is hot, tomorrow is hot. Thankfully we haven't had to endure any rolling blackouts. Today will be 35 days in a row of over 100 degrees, and the record of 42 in a row set in 1980 will probably be broken.  We could really use the rain.

Visit the Terrell Tigers site, www.ihigh.com/terrelltigers.  The Lady Tigers Volleyball team has their first scrimmage tonight at Caddo Mills.

oh i always love pictures of the carnival! wow, 35 days and counting of over 100, ugh...we've been in upper 90's but that doesn't compare to what you've been going through. I just looked at the weather and tomorrow's high is only 82! We're going to need hoodies! Hope you get some relief from that heat soon!!

I especially like the top photo of the Ferris wheel! Fun for kids, hard on dad's wallet!
Wish I could send some Minnesota rain your way....

Looks like so much fun! It's hot here too, but I definitely think you are getting the worst of it.

Great photos, Jim. Thanks for taking the time to go early to the carnival. I'm praying for rain and release from the heat.

Nice, colorful shots, Jim. You really have had some miserable weather! They should set up some water spray thingys for the carnival!

Couldn't believe how many days over 100 Texas has had. The colorful Carnival might be a good distraction.
