Texas Playground Spontaneously Combusts

14 Aug

Wow! Can it be that it’s so hot that playground material is bursting into flames spontaneously? Apparently, the answer is yes. Watch this CBS news clip to see a playground in Arlington (about 20 minutes from here) actually spontaneously combust. Hmmm. Note to self- no more playgrounds until the weather cools down a bit (wait, we weren’t going there anyway in this weather- too HOT!).

Right Now for
Keller, TX (76248)

    OMG! That’s crazy! No humidity though, right? Otherwise you’d go insane. Our pool reached an all-time high of 89 a few weeks ago with our heatwave!

    Virtually no humidity. In the 20s% and central air/pool make a huge difference. I find it much more comfortable here in this weather than in Bedford with window air conditioners- talk about hell…

    I love you guys, but I am sorry there is nothing appealing about those temps! Sean and I would never be seen outside.
