Last night, Lubbock, Texas looked really good under a full moon as the city twinkled at us on the plains. At 9 p.m., it was still 97 degrees (and everyone else was driving around with their car windows rolled down) but traffic was light and we found our hotel. And no hookers.
It's now 6:45 a.m. and the sun hasn't risen. WHAT? Has the curvature of the Earth changed THIS MUCH by driving 2,000+ miles south?! Apparently so. And it's hot already with 90% humidity. Life is going to look a little different from now on.
So, it's breakfast, pack the truck, and drive another 8 hours SOUTH to San Antonio. I shall slather on the sunscreen and stay in the shade from now on. And/or only come out at night.
