I've told this story to several people now, and they've suggested I post it here.

I have to admit, even after living in Texas all of my life, it was a first for me.

The Saturday I returned from Scotland, my band and I played Stroker's Icehouse on the outside stage. The actual temperature was around 101 when we started and the heat index was 106.

It was a long, hot 4 hours. When we were done, all I wanted to do was get a shower and go to bed. When I was getting undressed, I took off my tennis shoes and went to pull off my socks. Remember, I'm pretty wiped out from 4 hours in the heat, but I couldn't get the sock off my foot. I'm thinking I've got a hangnail, but no.

My toe nail polish had melted to my socks. On both feet.

THAT'S how hot it is in Texas!
