Winter? What winter???

I attended our monthly WBCCI unit lunch today in a short-sleeve shirt. All kind of young girlies running around in shorts and halter tops at the shoppng center. We hit 86 day before yesterday, 81 yesterday, and expect mid-80s today. New records breaking every day. I even went out for the paper this morning in a T-shirt.

I'm pawing the ground to get out with the trailer again. I'm committed to a Rose Bowl watching party tomorrow, darn it, but I just made state park reservations for Thursday and Friday nights and I may very well stay over Saturday night, as well.

We had planned to go down to Laredo for a few days, but there has been so much violence there lately that we dropped the idea. If I can budge the wife, we just may go down in the valley for a few days.

Next major use of the trailer will be the Vintage Rally the beginning of February.

Go ahead and rub it in - see if we care! (well ok - we actually do....)

Today started with black ice on the roads, then a little flurry. That gave way to crushingly silent banks of fog rolling in across the Columbia - can't see your hand at the end of your arm, dog won't even go outside in it, FOG.

This afternoon began with rain, the sideways kind that insinuates itself into your best gortex duds and leaves you chilled, damp and feeling like a corpse.

Looking forward to the Spring.....

New records

We beat the previous high temperatures at both reporting sites in Austin by 3 degrees. 86 degrees at Camp Mabry and 85 degrees at the airport. No wonder the young girls were out in shorts and halters.

If it were not for the Rose Bowl party, I would already be at a state park.

No outside fires though; everything is tinder dry. I can't even legally BBQ a steak on the back porch. ALL fireworks were prohibited over New Years which reeally made a few folks mad. There was a bunch of $500 fines levied for setting off fireworks..

It's been a steady 78-82 here for weeks. It may go as low as 50 tonight, maybe. Let me get out my thermal underwear for that!

Thumbs up

It never ceases to amaze me how diverse the weather is we all have.

I wish you water where you need it, warmth where you want it!

Personally I kinda like the cold (sick eh?)
