That Weird Texas Weather

We both stayed up a bit late last night and were slow to get awake this morning. The sky is overcast and the temperature is hovering just below 40°.

At about 10:00 am we heard thunder not far off and expected some rain to begin any time. Sure enough, soon there was the sound of what we assumed was rain. I say assumed, we were wrong. It wasn’t rain. It was snow! We had thunder snow! It was coming straight down like rain, huge flakes that appeared more like raindrops, we could hear it on the roof, and the ground was becoming scattered with snow.

That was thirty-five minutes ago and there is still a little thunder off in the distance but the white stuff on the ground has disappeared. Needless to say, an interesting start to our Tuesday morning!

I’ve made coffee and I just heard the garage door opening…Brad returning from the coffee shop with our breakfast. I’ll put my post on hold for a bit so we can enjoy our breakfast…


11:45 am: We had an enjoyable breakfast and some good conversation. Brad is at his computer and I just finished the daily crossword on Pogo. I’ll do the daily Sudoku later.

The sky is beginning to lighten, the snow has not resumed, and it’s staying just below 40°. I intended to make my online grocery order last night but ran out of steam, so I’ll do that in a while and pick it up tomorrow after my chiropractor’s appointment.

I’m still piled up in the recliner with a second cup of coffee, still in my gown and fluffy robe. Since we had a late breakfast there is no need for me to do anything in the kitchen for awhile, so I might as well sit here and knit and read until I feel the urge to get out of my recliner and into some clothes!

Have a blessed Tuesday, ya’ll. (Just heard more thunder coming our way.)

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
