  • Ice Tea Alert, Ice Tea Alert!

    Here in Tulsa, at 9:45 pm, it's 99 degrees, 55 per cent humidity and not a hint of a breeze!

    Break out the ice tea, wring out a cold neck cloth!

          Anybody drink Gatorade? It helps replace the sodium you lose through sweating.
          Jim, rig up your garden hose to something and put it on a fine spray. That'll cool ya off.

              Up here in Alaska, with the storm systems that have been moving south off the arctic coast, we are overcast, raining off and on all week and right now it is 52 with a slight wind. Feels like September instead of July. I went to work on Thursday morning the temp was 46F. BRRRRRRr.

                We are just being teased with rain at the moment. Its cloudy and overcast then out comes the blistering sun for a couple of hours then more clouds. Monsoon is the best. All the thunder and lightening shows during summer months. The flash floods are not so good.

                  Yeah well its sunny and warm here with a slight offshore breeze. I rode my Harley with the sun and wind in my face today.

                  God I love the coastal Carolina Lowcountry. Wouldn't trade places with anyone right now.

                    Hey Jim, I'm from Tulsa. I used to live on 39th and Mingo. I went to Fulton Elementary School. Do they still do a big Christmas thing at Utica square, or is that place even still there?

                        The DJ on the radio said it was 118 in Las Vegas when he was there on vacation. People would say, "But it's a dry heat." His reply was, "It was 118 degrees! Dry or wet...it's still hot!"

                          Tea is actualy a diuretic and will make you lose fluids.

                          But anyway I love the stuff.. How does everyone here drink theirs? I drink mine totally plain, no sugar and defenitely no lemon!

                            RaychelR, I have my big cup of hot tea in the morning with Equal and usually drink ice water the rest of the day. When I drink iced tea, it's sweetend with sugar. Don't think I could drink it plain.

                              This may sound funny, but on those mornings when I have the time, I have a large mug of hot sweet tea with peanut butter spread over what is called fry bread...

                              It is what my family mostly had available to eat for breakfast when we were growing up. Now, when I can certainly afford to have something more mainstream, still I find that food to most comfortable.

                              Funny, huh?
