North Texans Enjoying Break From Heat



    Enjoying a Break From the Heat

    After 68 days of triple-digit heat, North Texans woke up Monday to much cooler temperatures. (Published Monday, Sept. 5, 2011)

    It was a picture perfect day at Coffee Park off Northwest Highway.

    "Great reprieve from all this heat," says Chris Murzin. "Just a chance for the family to get together and enjoy the outside."

    Perhaps busier than it's been all summer long, families played side-by-side as the sun sets on a long summer.

    "It puts me in a good mood 'cause it's been so hot, and it just feels good to get it a little colder," said Murzin's daughter, Caroline.

    Jazzie Evans worked on her soccer skills while her dad cheered her on in a sweatshirt.
    But who can blame him?  Monday morning's cold front did make it feel like a completely different season.

    "Winter," exclaimed Billy Shearer, as he stepped outside this morning.

    Yes, that's a stretch. But after temperatures that soared well above 100 for months on end, it was exactly what the doctor ordered.
