I’m thinking Mother Nature may be hitting the Super Bowl refreshments a bit early. Of course, this is central Texas where our summertime highs are 120+ and our wintertime lows can be as extreme. It’s funny because most people, myself included, don’t realize that it can get super cold sometimes here in the winter. The good news is that the cold is short lived – rarely more than a day or two, and we’re back to wearing short sleeves and flip flops. The bad news is that it only takes one night of super cold temps to cause pipes to burst and next year’s fruit crop to be lost.

People here say “If you don’t like the weather today, wait til tomorrow” and it’s so true but that’s how it’s been everywhere we’ve lived – Louisiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Texas – probably most everywhere except places that get cold and stay cold all winter. I guess our summers are predictable – HOT and dry. Not much changes in the summertime.
I’m kinda looking forward to maybe getting a little snow. One thing for sure . . we have no place we need to go so whatever happens, we’re ready for it.
