A Break from the East Texas Heat

For days East Texans have been trying to escape triple digit temperatures Bessie and Vernon Brown own a fruit and vegetable stand just off highway 69. They have been working in the dangerous heat. "It's been extra hot.   Oh we got a fan we run if we get too hot", says the Bessie and Vernon Brown.

Mr. Brown is thankful for the cool weather but he has another wish, more rain to help with his garden.

Some folks in East Texas saw temperatures in the mid 70's Saturday afternoon.  Friday afternoon temperatures were in the mid 90's.
