My wife and I have been struggling with colds and sinus issues since we returned from our Thanksgiving family visit back east. Not a commentary on visiting family, another subject for another day. It does speak to the issue I have with the weather in Texas. For one, it is always windy here. We get stuff blowing in here from all over, and we get it all the time. We may not grow bad air in Texas, but we definitely import it. For another, the weather swings all over the place:

I did not make these up, I got them off weather.com. This is what we deal with, weather-wise. Makes for an interesting time. This is what last week looked like. From the 20's to the 80's and heading back down again. (Today is in the 50's)

I could live with either end of the temperature spectrum, but is it too much to ask for some consistency?

Apparently it is.

LOL....we just have to leave a comment! My husband and I also reside in Texas and we have often had the same discussion about the back and forth weather degrees. It is especially hard on trying to figure out how to dress our kindergartner for school, 'If it's sunny and real warm this morning, how will it be during recess or lunch? Will it still be sunny and warm or cloudy, windy, and cold?' It's so frustrating to say the least. We are so glad we accidently fell upon your blog so that we can have someone to relate to. :-)

God Bless You!

As I was told when I moved here, if you do not like the weather in Texas wait 15 minutes, it'll change.
