Today is a record setting day for Dallas. Today's high is 102, the highest temp for this day ever. You cannot tell by looking, but in less than 24 hours this place will be filled with wind and rain as Rita moves this way. My travel plans have changed and I am leaving early. My hope is to get out while the airport is still open. The hotel is glad to get my room early as people are coming from the coast looking for places to stay.
