Dishing with Dorie ~ 8 /19/19

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

 Another hot, hot week-end in Austin! Temperatures soared and everyone was looking for water! So glad we have a pool when its 109 degrees!

An agent held an open house for me on Saturday and the heat kept buyers away. My buyers are negotiating on repairs on their purchase last week. Our grandson is off to Texas A&M for his Junior year. This week our granddaughter leaves for San Diego State. All came by over the week-end to see Paw Paw and say good-bye! 


Did you know Grisham Middle School PTA and Westwood High School PTA  in the RRISD were recognized as a "School of Excellence" by the National PTA? Only 326  schools across the country received this designation. Congratulations!!

Good morning Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR -  it was really hot and humid in New York as well.  All the schools are starting now.  Getting ready for Fall.

Good morning, Dorie - many thoughts of "back to school" prompt ponderings of new beginnings...   Happy Monday!

Hi Dorie... and I thought it was hot here in Charlotte in the low 90's! Can't wait for the temperatures to drop back a bit (and I'm one of those who actually likes hot weather).

Sounds like your heat is like ours, as we are in that range too.  Do you have much humidity though?  We have very little, almost none, so it feels bearable.  I hate it when it is 109 with humidity.

When I read about the hot weather so much of the country has indured--even parts of our Bay Area--I'm again thankful for living in San Francisco. Our "heat spell" saw three days of high 70s, low 80s, cooling off each night. Now, our fog is back, cooling off the inland areas too.

I cant imagine 109, we are lucky to hit 100 once every couple of years. I am with you on the pool. For August yesterday was the 1st 90 degree day since the July heat wave.

Hello Dorie,  When it is hot like 109 you for sure need a pool I would think.  We only got up to 95 in Denver yesterday!

Good morning Dorie,

Hot is not something I would characterize our summer as so far.  We have had a cool summer, and we have no complaints.  A

Dorie, I usually like hot better than cold...but not 109. A pool is the only way to keep it cool and definitely needed!

Hi Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR,

With all these 109ºs showing up, I feel blessed to not have any humidity and weather only in the 90ºs.  I melt in humidity.
