Tales of a Warm Earth

Tales of a Warm Earth

Going into this knowing that Texas summers are ungodly hot and that the Van Halen doesn't have air conditioning hasn't dulled the fresh horror of upwards of one-hundred degrees. There's just something about this kind of heat that is baffling and confusing; the sun bakes your blood vessels and can turn a Rhodes Scholar into a stuttering mess. It also routinely kills the unfortunate elderly and small pets, so there's that as well. This article disgustingly points out that it got to 110 in Midland, and I saw 108 in McAllen and 104 in Laredo. People – the few that are outside – march around slowly as if in a daze before jutting back inside the air conditioning. I tried to give Laredo and Uvalde a fair shake, but the unappetizing thought of footing it across the tiny town square became even less palatable with each tick in the temperature. You feel like you need a hazmat suit and a saline drip just to get around.

I eventually settled for the evening in the Casa Blanca State Park in Laredo and Garner State Park here in Concan. I'm itching to see some live music out here, but the place from which I'm typing right now (a restaurant/hall/bar called The House Pasture Cattle Company) has live music most nights but nothing last night and only karaoke this evening. This town is strange...it appears to be nothing but long dirt roads and river attractions (the beautiful Frio runs through here) but you should've seen the crowd last night at Garner...just tons and tons of kids and their parents and dancers and people propping up their chairs around the dance floor just to hang out. When I walked by today after a dip in the river, the chairs were all set out with no one in them...maybe as a way to claim their places for tonight? Here's the kicker – no alcohol is sold or served at the park. Maybe there's some love drug in the sleepy summer air that makes people flock out to Garner for their nightly dance. Maybe they just like sobriety and country music more than I do.
