Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

It hit 107 a bit later, but dropped back before I could get the picture. I know that car thermometers tend to run hot because they're reading air heated by the sun-baked asphalt and the exhaust of the other cars.
But damn. Everything's bigger in Texas, I guess. Even the temperature.
