Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : So, Listen Weather, cool it!

So, Listen Weather, cool it!

Are you ALL in Texas? Or, possibly in a wonderful temperate climate? Jeesh. I climbed into my car in the garage this evening to run to the store and the car showed the temperature at 89º and I thought...hmmm...not too bad! As the car pulled out of the driveway the temperature climbed and climbed and climbed. I don't mean to be repetitious but it climbed to 103º at which moment I was questioning my good judgment about leaving.

I am imagining that the summer here in Texas is a great deal like the winter in Michigan!

I am beginning to feel cabin fever.

Just pretending on Lake Conroe

I feel the dread of showing properties in this heat but I DO want to show properties!

The Lake is drying up so it's a great Buyer's Market!

Where are the buyer's?

They are at home getting cabin fever!

At this time of night people are usually strolling together holding hands.

Others are walking their dogs on a normal evening.

Bikes are passing by and my little dog barks and has fun with it.

I took my dog for a walk earlier as I glistened in the sun saying, "hurry up Reecie, I can't stand this..." Know what she said? Well, nothing because she's a dog but she stopped dead. Sat down in the grass. When I pulled her leash she fought against me. She wouldn't budge. Period. I picked her up and carried her home!

Are you dealing with this kind of excrutiating heat like us? 

It is hurting everyone and the grass, and the birds, and the lake, and we are on Water Rationing.


So, listen weather, cool it!

I want to get back to business.

Hi Deb - I wrote a blog about this crazy weather.  Living in Massachusetts your winter analogy is so correct.  Don't forget, never let them see you sweat:)

Ah Deb, cute post, but really, YES!  It is hot and muggy and your hari frizzes and you can't stand vacant homes to show and.....

Posted by Brenda Mullen, Your San Antonio TX Real Estate Agent!! (RE/MAX Access) almost 8 years ago


This is June in NYC and we're experiencing highs and lows!  This week has been mild--in the 60s and 70s, but wait until winter!  Weather is predicted to be in the mid-70s and low 80s for the next week.  Good luck to you and hope it cools off or there's lots of a/c. :).

We just hit triple digits today, with 106 forecast for tomorrow before backing off into the 90s for the weekend. Most of the activity at the Bark Park is now after 7:30 PM when the sun dips behind the mountains.

Conrad! So, maybe you should spend a summer here and I should spend a winter there and we could begin to appreciate what we have? It's just too extreme though. I remember the Indiana winters when I was a child but all it meant for me was no school for the day, going out in my front yard and ice skating, eating snow ice cream and having my dad push me off to slide down the hills! What fond memories they are.


Jeanne, humidity really hurts when it's hot! Literally hurts! It's like being in a sauna with no towel! Hang in there my friend~we will get through this...maybe?'


Brenda, San Antonio is a scorcher city too! I was living there in the 80's when it snowed though! I think it was my karma that brought it on! I was about to move to Dallas where it really snows.


Ilan, enjoy it while you've got it. Do you realize it was just that pleasant here a month ago? It's so weird how the weather is changing don't you think? Is your weather doing funny things too? JC....

Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) almost 8 years ago

Oh No! John, you are kidding me? 106º ????  Sounds like Wichita Falls a few days ago. I was there and at one point it hit 118º. I wouldn't have believed it if I had not felt it! If I were an egg, I would have fried!

Later in the rain~Deb...(don't I wish!)

right there with you in South Louisiana Sister!  HUMID HEAT!!  I got a new relocation  buyer today and guess what he wants to view property Friday at 1:00 and again Saturday, he will be meeting his REALTOR in shorts I can promise you that LOL

Oh and I can relate to your dog because I have a new puppy and we are potty training so I am in and out all day and looking for shade in the back yard while she does her business

Posted by Marilyn Boudreaux, Lake Charles LA Century 21 Realtor (Marilyn Boudreaux, Century 21 Mike D. Bono & Co.'s) almost 8 years ago

Marilyn, yes ma'am sista! It is just like jumping into a heat sauna with the water pouring over the rocks with your towel over you till you faint and they Dial 9-1-1 and you wake up wheezing and do not want to take the ambulance because it costs so much although you would love to sit in a cool bed with nurses waiting on you and bringing you Mai Tai's and then you wake up and you're just sweaty and miserable...."whew". You got me going!

lol...see what the heat does to me? Not a pretty sight! Take care of that puppy and I know it's not easy right now. Just think how easy it will be with pup when it cools down! Good to see you! BTW, girl? Boy? Name? Pictures?

CRAZY hot! My car said 107 when I got in, but it had been sitting in the sun. When I got to the funeral home it said 102. EITHER WAY... it's HOT! I'm with you, girlfriend! COOL IT!

Posted by Joni Bailey, Your Huntsville / Lake Livingston Area REALTOR® (101 Main St. Realty) almost 8 years ago

Nope, Deb, it's not just you.  Georgia has the same crazy heat.  Our average high for this time of year is 88 and we've hit 100 4 days and been over 90 22 days in a row.  I melt... every time I walk my dog (who is a great dane, so there is NO picking him up and taking him home, the lab either for matter, but she does mind somewhat) 

And no rain here either... UGH... 

Think we should head north for summer like the notherners head south for winter?

Hi Deb, Only you could write such an entertaining story abut the weather. Ours hasn't hit the high temps as yet but in the summer, 100 plus occurs too often , living a bit inland from the coast was a lesson to be learned and sadly I had to learn it hard way, LOL.  

Posted by William Johnson, Retired Real Estate Professional (Retired) almost 8 years ago



I think we are going to beat 2009. We had 67 100+ days that summer. Ugghh

When I started in real estate in Colorado, it was standard to tell people that they didn't need air conditioning because it really only got hot two weeks out of the year.  NOW we turn our air conditioners on in May and leave them on for months because it's gotten so hot.  I totally empathize.

It was, but it's beautiful now....70s and 80s!  Great!

Posted by Ilan Bracha, KW NYC/The Bracha Group, Manhattan (Keller Williams NYC) almost 8 years ago

Hi all! I woke up this morning with a tune going through my head! I was still sleepy and had to think about what it was!

It was "LET IT SNOW!"

Jeeze...sometimes I think I brainwash myself.

Thank you for all the comments.

Stay cool~

Later in the rain~Deb

Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) almost 8 years ago
