Welcome to Texas

Texas really is such a unique place to live. Where else do you have rolling hills, oceans, lakes and deserts all in one state? You have two six flags theme parks, the best state fair EVER, and by far the best collegiate opportunity as a LONGHORN.

But taking all of this into account I think that my most favorite part of Texas has to be the weather. I am not kidding. In case you didn't know this- watching the weather is my most favorite part of the day. The more dark and ominous the better. LOVE the inclement weather preferably on channel 8 because in my opinion, they have the best graphics (their cloud clip art moves across the screen). I LOVE it when the doppler radar shows all the RED surrounding Dallas. Please don't take this to mean that I like all the chaos that comes out of storms... oh no, that is horrible. I just love the anticipation of a storm.

Where else in the lovely ole US of A can you wake up in winter, go throughout the day in Summer, go to sleep in Spring and then wake up in winter again? All in the same day. I don't think that I have ever seen anything like it. Today's high was in the 80's. Saturday's high is not supposed to be out of the low 40's. So if you have a lot of winter clothes but can't part with those flip flops...never fear- come to Texas.

Unfortunately, this roller coaster weather system we have has played quite a toll on my allergies this year. I have never had Dallas allergies before. I know it making a lot of people sick. To be honest- I wasn't all that surprised last night when Molly woke up with a toasty 103.4 temp. They have just been too healthy this holiday. But much like the weather, Molly had her own cool front come through today and was back to her normal self. Looking for a jump in temp this evening though- after all- it is Texas.

A little fever didn't stop her fun. Bring on the shorts and flips... well, for a couple of hours at least.
