A drought? Are you kidding me?

Visit yearly for the WEBB Party in April, weather is usually just perfect with enough warmth to gear up my cold bones and tease me with our summer in July here in Van,BC.

Heading your way for our August long weekend (July/ 29-Aug/4 and have seen reports on the news that make me sweat!

Tips for beating the head besides a margarita and turning over in my lounger into the pool?

Please don't beat your head not a good idea. LOL To beat the heat a pool & margarita sounds like a good way. I would do activities in AM or early evening & during the day stay by the pool or inside with AC. Who knows August may be better than June & July.

Have a great visit & Please bring some cool weather with you + snow or rain would be nice also. LOL

If you are coming in August for the first time, the fact that the drought is "official" really won't impact what you will experience- it's like this EVERY year in August. It's Texas, it's July/August, it's over 100 pretty much everyday. Previous advice was good- I would add consider visiting a cave while in SA.

Hey luv -- as a fellow Canadian, we are heading to SA in a week's time and I know it will be hot. We were in Arizona last summer, Charleston the summer before and Florida the year before that, etc. You get my drift.

It takes a day or two to adjust -- are you driving or flying?

Otherwise, do what you can in the AM -- as previously posted, or later on in the afternoon. Plan on laying low over lunch -- that's what pools and airconditioned buildings are great for!

We found we would often go out in the morning and do stuff, return to our hotel either for lunch or just after, and then go out again later in the afternoon.

On the plus side, you will have lovely, warm evenings. Given the way our summer has been here -- I'm really looking forward to it. Enjoy!

My fingers are too fast for my own good.

No," to beat my head" I agree not a good idea, and yes to laying low over the lunch hour.

Who knows, we just might be hooked on the hot weather as well. Maybe my new time of year to visit will be the summer!

Thanks all...-Luv

Playing in the river is my favorite. Although they are down, there are still plenty of swimming holes. Medina river around Bandera, Frio around Concan, The Guadalupe, and the Comal.

The heat is really hard to take this year, and we moved here from Tampa!! This has been the worst summer since our move, by far. Yes we hate the drought and what it's doing to our yards, but the heat is unrelenting. With any luck, this will break, but it's been going on so long now it feels like a permanent state of affairs! Early mornings are beautiful though...the earlier you get out, the better off you'll be.

Octoboy has a great suggestion in heading to the rivers, likewise poodleone's recommendation for a cave (Natural Bridge Caverns is a beautiful one). Those are both "cool" ideas! :>
