2015_Day 114: Hot, humid weather perfect for tomatoes
We were talking about the weather at work today, and a co-worker commented how she wasn’t ready for the 90s and the humidity. It has been humid lately and we’ve had at least one 90-degree day with more in the weekend forecast. Innocently (I am new to Texas, after all), I asked if 90s in April were common, adding that I thought those hot temperatures would hold off til at least May. Continue reading
2015_Day 106: Beautiful, stormy clouds, but where’s the rain?

2015_Day 7: Wild and windy day in Texas
There are a number of things I didn’t bring from Wisconsin because I didn’t think I’d have much use for them in Texas. Snow shovels. Game them to family in Wisconsin. Snow boots.

Seems you don’t have to have an old house to have a drafty one. Continue reading
2015_Day 5: Hey Mom, I’m not cold. Get over it.
It was 27 degrees this morning (wind chill temperature was 21) when daughter left the house to walk to the bus stop. Do you think she had a coat on?
“Mom, I’ve got a sweatshirt in my bag if I get cold,” she said. “I’ll be fine.”
So tell me again, why exactly is it that teens won’t wear coats? Continue reading
