BABY IT' COLD OUTSIDE
It's been crazy cold here in Central Texas the last few days. Yesterday was in the seventies until late afternoon. My daughter called and told me it was freezing outside...I told her I had just gotten home, and took my sweatshirt off because I was so hot. She said, "well, walk outside and see how cold it's gotten". I glanced at my indoor outdoor thermometer, and it said 34 degrees out...so I ran outside and it was windy and freezing. How does that happen so fast? The sun hadn't set yet either. By 8 p.m. it was sleeting!
So now today, another Texas blogger announces "It's snowing people". Now this blogger has lived in Texas for several years, and proclaimed this is the first snow she has seen in her part of Texas. Remember, Texas is huge....even bigger than non-Texans realize.
I arrived in Texas two days before Easter, 2007, and this is what it looked like the day before Easter Sunday in Central Texas.
Over eight inches of snow. The real thing!
The kids got pretty excited and dressed for winter playtime! They built a snowman, so did most of the neighbors.
None of this cancelled our neighhood BBQ.
Can we hope for a white Christmas?
