Dear Texas Weather,

Dear Texas Weather,

We need to talk.

Listen, I know you are notoriously fickle.  It's promoted as a selling point.  "If you don't like the weather in Texas, wait five minutes and it will change."  We know it's true.  And we appreciate that in summer. That's when it can bring a little relief from your oppressive heat.

But we're in winter now.  Or at least what is supposed to be winter.  And I have to say, all these changes, they just aren't healthy.

I mean it was twenty-eight degrees this morning.  Parts of the state even hit twenty-four degrees.  That's great.  That's winter.  We appreciate it.  We're not used to it, but we appreciate it.

By this weekend, though, we're going to hit the mid-seventies. The low will be basically sixty.  That's a quick turnaround.  Any faster and you'd catch up to yesterday.

The new joke going around is that you celebrate all four seasons but just all in one day.  Spring at 9:00 am, Summer at 1:00 pm, Fall at 4:00 pm, and Winter at 8:00 pm.  It's too much, it's too fast.  I don't know that I can dress in sufficiently appropriate layers to address all those changes.  I mean, this upcoming weekend will be comfortably spring weather, and I'm just not ready for that.

So can we please stick to the cold for a little while.  And if you're really generous, can we get one good freeze/snow week day.  Just one; not hard and not heavy, but just enough to cover.  It really makes it feel like we truly got winter down here.  That way we can hold onto that memory when you turn it up to 100+ in the summer.

That's all and thank you for listening. I just felt like we needed to clear the air, so to speak.  Hopefully we can reach some sort of breakthrough.  A little consistency could do us all some good.
