Dog Days of Summer Barking at Our Door

Staff Writer

Here’s a reality to make you sweat: The official start of summer is only 11 days away. Summer starts on Friday, June 21 with no relief in sight until Monday, September 23. While today is cooler than usual, the heat is certainly on its way. Temperatures this week will rise and we’ll be seeing temperatures in the 90’s by week’s end.
As the old song lyric goes, “The heat is on”. This is not only the case in Texas, but all over the country. Whether or not this is global warming or global scorching, it can be especially hot in Sweetwater.
