This is a picture of my thermometer sitting outside my office window, in the shade. The thermometer also has an extra sensor which is sitting 10 feet away, on the roof, in the direct sunlight. As you can see, it’s 97 in the shade, BUT A WHOPPING 137 IN THE SUN!!!! It’s HOT IN TEXAS!!!
The picture was taken last Friday, 7/14/06 when the temp peaked at just over 100, today I heard the high could be 106!!! I’m guessing the thermometer would read over 140!!!.
