Old Man Winter Has Arrived

There's an old saying that if you don't like the weather, just wait a few minutes. That has certainly proved true in my part of the country the last few days.

I write this early on a Saturday morning. On Thursday, the temperature reached a balmy 78. A front moved through West Texas later that day, reaching our area (known locally as the "Concho Valley") about midnight. Our high temp for Friday was actually recorded in the early hours of that day in the 40s. Once daylight arrived, the temp hovered in the low 30s throughout the day, a difference of about 45 degrees from the previous day.

Now early on this Saturday morning, it is still cold, with the temp hovering around the freezing mark. It will remain here throughout the day. Yesterday, we had a little moisture, even a few small specks of snow. It's still dark out, but I can see partially white rooftops in the neighborhood. We expect more wintry weather today (Saturday), tomorrow, and into Monday.

Donna made a big pot of soup yesterday. Mmmm! We have no place we need to be, so we are staying home for the weekend. It's nice to be in a warm house during cold weather as opposed to a travel trailer as we were last winter.
