IT’S HOT, NO BULL!
“Don’t call us dumb animals. You notice if there’s one shade tree in a pasture, we all manage to find it.” This has been the scene all over the Rockdale area for the past three weeks as temperatures continue to climb into triple digits every afternoon. As of Tuesday the 100-degree-plus streak reached 16 straight on Tuesday and it’s been 100 each day but one since July 31. A Wednesday cool front was expected to lower temperatures about 10 degrees.
