Texas Weather

No, not the band, the real meteorological events. It's 68 degrees in Austin, and 17 degrees in Amarillo. Granted, there's a 500 mile differential, but it's coming. Time to stock up and stay off the streets. Austin drivers are homicidal/suicidal in bad weather. Can't count the number of wrecks I've seen caused by folks driving too fast for the conditions.

This system is bringing thunderstorms, tornados, sleet, ice, and maybe even snow. I have gas heating and cooking, so I don't have to worry about the electricity going off, except that I can't use the computer or watch a DVD.

Like they say here in Texas, if you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes. It WILL change. Even in the hot, broiling summer, we can get a hailstorm, and tornados seem to pop up most any time of the year.

Asi' es la vida en Tejas...
