Houston Weather

"If you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait a minute and it will change."

That is true, especially in the fall and spring and winter.  Summer is pretty much just hot and humid, with some days being not so hot and some days being rainy.

The temperatures have ranged from lows in the low 20's to highs in the low 70's in the month we've been back.

We are having legitimately cold weather now.  I don't think it's been warmer than 40 since Monday, and tomorrow might get just above that.

The normal high this time of year is 64, so it's understandable that people are COLD.  Those who know we've moved from Connecticut have said to me, "This must be nothing to you." 

No, 35 and windy is unpleasantly cold no matter what else you've endured.

But when I say the weather here is crazy -- that unpredictable is the norm this time of year, this is what I mean.  The forecast for Saturday is sunny and 56 and Sunday is sunny and 67.  That's a temperature variance of almost 50 degrees over the week.

How's your winter weather treating you?

It's cold. And lots of snow! And more snow! And a little rain thrown in just to change things up.

My father-in-law has called twice from San Antonio after seeing on the news that we had a big storm. The first time was to say he doesn't own a snow shovel or ice scraper. The second time was to say the local Home Depot doesn't carry snow shovels or ice scrapers so he can't buy one if he wanted to. Yeah. He's real funny when the walls of snow flanking my driveway are shoulder high.

Well, it WAS super-cold and snowy. Then last week, we had two absolutely beautiful days in the 60's. The kids loved that -- got the bikes out and got all muddy. Now it's back to the 30s. I'm ready for spring, but I think the kids want more snow so they can go sledding one more time this year.
