Summer blast

Dilley youngster Brylee Kramer takes advantage of fresh water from a garden hose to beat the afternoon high temperatures this week. Tripple-digit highs have become the norm during the final weeks of the summer vacation before students return to school on August 10. Despite the landfall of Hurricane Hannah on the South Texas Gulf Coast on Saturday, much of the region was spared the worst of the storm and received less than an inch of rain, allowing children to venture outside and enjoy another day of summer.    (CURRENT Photo: Breyana Segura)
