F U Texas heat!

I just moved here from Southern California and this heat is horrible and its not even mid summer yet.. Does it get worse than this?!
And on top of dealing with the heat, its taking a toll on my cars peak performance!

Could be worse. I traded Texas heat for Atlanta's heat and humidity...

Yes, it's bad now, and yes, it will get worse. God help us all.

Also be glad that hail and tornado season is pretty much over (March - June).

On the bright side, we have good 93 octane here. Better than the crap California 91

That is true, I am definitely enjoying the fruits of 93 octane! 91 is just crap. Now I just need for a tuner to make a proper tune for the F10's and i'll be completely happy with having access to 93oct.

That is a very true point! High humidity would be the nail in the coffin for me.

Word. I wouldn't live in Houston or N.O for that very reason. The humidity is a killer. But 108 is nothing to scoff at either.

It is hotter than usual right now (106-107). It won't get hotter than this, but it will stay hot until late September unfortunately.

Was gonna go to the track this week but even at 10:00 it's still 94.

It's not that bad yet; last year was worse. While temperature has been solid the last few days not everything is dead and burnt up yet. I walked around downtown Austin today at 5'ish in jeans and dress shirts... it's doable.

I'm surprised we made it to June without a 100+ degree day. Now they won't stop until September
