Texas Weather

The weather in Texas is so completely different than I ever thought it would be. Before I moved here, I was under the impression that there were two temperatures - hot and hotter. However, there never fail to be surprises. Of course there are the hurricanes that build up one day in the Gulf and hit the towns south of here the next night, but never really even give us a drizzle even though we are expecting buckets of rain. Yesterday morning I went out on the front porch to feed the dog and cats, and it was so unexpectedly cool at 8 am that I woke the girls up to sit on the porch and sip coffee and share it with me. The weather was pleasant and non-humid all day long. We went for a cookout with some neighbors down the road at one of the national park preserves and took a nice long walk. It was so great to be outdoors and get some fresh air again. Then yesterday evening, I saw that there is another "tropical depression", Ingrid to be exact, that could be headed our way. What a very strange place this is.

What's your weather like?

  2. I have to stop boasting about our beautiful late summer sun and trips to the beach now, because it's cold and raining, which is our typical winter weather!!!

  3. Ingrid? I'm going to have to check that out.

    It is really nice outside rightthissecond... but it'll be hot before ya know it.

    I love cooler weather. Oh well, the winter is pretty pleasant down here so long as it isn't raining... which is the norm. Maybe I'll have a more positive forecast when I finish my first cup of coffee!

  4. Right now it's 85 and dry, the last 2 days were in the 70's and cool at night. We actually shut the AC off for 2 days, it's on now, we are heading back to 90 by the end of the week.

  8. I'm still waiting for Fall her in North Texas! It wasn't too bad Sat morning when Davfe & I went to Ft Worth for the Heart Walk. I guess I can wait another month or so and then I'll finally be happy with the Fall-like temps!

  10. Same as Kathleen, but I have to say that I like the rain. I am looking forward to being able to fire up our wood stove. It would be nice to keep our late summer weather a little longer though.
