Hottest 4th of July the Brazos Valley has experienced in almost 15 years

Brazos Valley continues to bake this holiday weekend as we gear up for plans and festivities to celebrate the 4th of July. After some morning clouds quickly clear, generally sunny skies will ease thermometers up near or right to the triple-digit mark. For Bryan-College Station, we expected to end the day just 3° shy of the record high set back in 1933 (89 years ago). Factor in the humidity and it will feel like the 90s by 9-10 a.m., the mid-90s by noon, followed by peak heat index values between 103° and 105° through the afternoon hours. Last 4th of July that was this hot? 2009 when the thermometer climbed to 102° at Easterwood Airport. Something to be mindful of (other than taking care of yourself in the heat): a south wind will blow through breezy, gusting to 20mph at times. Drought conditions & very dry vegetation already make it easy for a grassfire to catch across the area. Add in that extra wind and anything that sparks will have the ability to spread quickly.

Brazos Valley awaits purple martin spectacle

Each spring, usually in late February or early March, the purple martins return to the Brazos Valley. Their arrival is eagerly awaited by purple martin lovers who spend a lot of time and effort getting the martins’ Brazos Valley homes ready. What many of these landlords don’t know is that after the birds spend the spring and summer in backyards across not only the Brazos Valley, but most of the United States, they don’t just leave those yards and fly straight home to South America. Instead, they do something called “staging.”

The Gluten-Free Guru

Gluten-free isn’t just a popular buzzword that’s tacked onto food packaging — it can be a lifesaver for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. What is gluten? According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, it’s a blanket term for proteins that are found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye). Gluten acts as the glue that holds foods together and helps them maintain their shape. It can be found in a variety of foods — even those that one might not expect. Wheat, the most common source for gluten, can be found in breads and baked goods as well as soups, pasta, cereals, sauces, and even salad dressings.
