Texas weather

is so unpredictable!    We’ve had several beautiful days…you know the kind.   The days are blue skied,  the sun is shining and the wind is gentle.   Then,  the wind picks up,  we might have some humidity or possibly – RAIN.   The nights will be in the 40-50s and really nice.  Suddenly,  the bottom falls out.   We’re looking for wood to fire up the fireplace to combat the teen numbered nights.   We’re covering plants, recovering water hoses.   After a couple of cold days,  we’re back to 70 degree days and freezing nights.

Saturday, Sunday and Monday were great.   Temps in the upper 60s with plenty of sunshine.  Today was a little cooler, but still a beautiful day.   Tomorrow, cold front moving in,  temperature dropping, wind picking up.  Frigid weather expected for late Wednesday and Thursday.   Brrrrr.  we could even have snow!   By Friday,  we’re back in the sun and 60s.  Crazy weather.   That old saying about if you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes and it will change – was really right!

That means we have a few more weeks to plan the garden,  get the area tilled and ready to plant.  Ernie was out on Monday planting onion sets and he started a flat of tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and squash.    Should they accidently grow,  we’ll have plants ready to drop in the garden.

How’s the weather in your area?
