It is Texas in August by quamp It is Texas in August by quamp
Made with TechArts 3DCG sp 4 & fanpack.

My dad recently spent a week in Minnesota on business. While there, he said people were constantly complaining about the 99F (38C) heat. Considering that this routinely happens every summer in Texas, my dad had no sympathy for them. Of course, the predicted high here today in the D/FW area is 101F (38C), which is down from the 105F (40C) that we had all this week. We finally broke our drought in April only to sink back into the red area of the Palmer scale* now. FEMA has declared almost half of the continental USA a disaster area because of this.
I blame Chinese pollution for that.
Anyway, anyone who's been in the Lone Star State in August will tell you this isn't that far from the truth. This was done for the :iconclub-of-ocs: jam. Let's see if anyone can tell us where that car is from.

*This assesses how much rain is needed to return things to normal levels. Red is 9-12 inches. A belt from Oklahoma through Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois is in the dark purple category, meaning they need 15 inches or more to return to normal.

I think KITT predated OnStar, Siri, and other cars that nag you about your headlights being on or your door being ajar. Nice cultural reference--I watched that show religiously back in the day, right along with The A-Team.

Having a black car with a black interior is not smart in Texas or Florida. This piece is SO chock full of right! Even changing planes in DFW (and then to land in Phoenix) in August makes you glad to stay in an air-conditioned lounge until your flight. I'd watch the Weather Channel and see these streaks of 100+ degree days in Texas. In my neck of the woods, we haven't cracked 100, but we've had plenty of high 90's days, complete with 90+ % humidity. Can Celine grill me up a hamburger on the hood while she's at it? A couple of minutes, and it'll be medium well. At least it's safer than nearly blowing yourself up with a propane grill.

AKG has it rough, between a drooling Pedobear and a flighty ingenue mom in Celine. Love this piece.

She'll make you a burger only if you like your hamburgers very well-burnt.

Is that why she and her husband go to restaurants every time he's on leave?

Oh, they can't afford that. Usually he does the cooking when he's at home.

Because Celine would burn water trying to boil it, right?

She's not that bad, it's just that he's better.

Very true, I lived in San Antonio for six years. Although August in FL isn't much better. :lol:

I live in the D/FW area now, and have most of my life. I've been to San Antonio in August; being outside the Alamo in 103 heat was not fun.
