So we had a freak snow incident a week or so back here in southeast Texas. Â It lasted…about four hours and was pretty much gone the minute it stopped. Â By the next day temps had warmed up to more balmy temperatures and by two days later it was quite warm, muggy and sloppy again.
TWO days ago the highs reached nearly 80.
Yesterday morning when I took the kids to school it was a nippy 35 degrees, which around here sends people into panic and into their winter parkas. Â Yes, I know, quit rolling your eyes. Â We actually didn’t get much above 50 the entire day. Â My daughter complained that she didn’t get to go outside when I dropped her off because it was “too cold.”
Today it’s warmer but still nippy. I think we’re in the 40s, but that’s pretty darn cold by our standards. Â Not that I have heat running in the house or anything, but going outside spawns immediate eye widening and an exclamation of “what the hell is this?”
A few years ago (before all the hurricanes came through and wiped out Bolivar Peninsula) we were on the beach on New Years Day. Temps were in the 80s and it was bright and sunshiney, to give you a little reference on our “winters” hehe
My cats think it’s the end of the world and have been relentlessly stalking me. As soon as I sit down anywhere, one of them jumps onto my lap and hunkers down like she’s seeing the next ice age.
I fully expect it to warm up just in time for Christmas, because, well, Christmas around here is more like rainy 70ish temperatures with the dip into the 50s at night. (maybe)
Because really, what is Christmas without mud and muggy weather? :)
