116 degrees at RGV yesterday, that is the same as Death Valley yesterday!   :icon_redface:  I am sure they would love to see some thunderstorms to cool it off a bit.
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

Just got back from BB. It wasn't too bad in the Chisos. Part of the group hiked Santa Elena in the 116 heat but they were ok.  Lots of rain last night and this morning. Report will be up in a couple of days.
