Wild Card Wednesday: W.....wacky and wonky Texas weather


Okay, so we haven't quite lived here a year....but please tell me...is this normal weather for Texas?? Remember when I was trying to get pictures of the kids in the blue bonnets?? (Little sidetracked story here....they are pretty much everywhere here still and Will calls them 'blue bomets'...when he sees some yellow wildflower besides them, he calls those 'yellow blue bomets'...it cracks me up every time.....

oh yeah, back to the wacky and wonky weather....I knew I better get the blue bonnet pics before Easter so these were taken in early April...okay we head to Oklahoma for Easter....and what happens??


Thanks, nice neighbor J for these pictures. Yes, folks, that is snow....snow in Texas...and this is central to south Texas at that.....It snowed on Easter about 4 inches. Most of it was already gone by the time we got back the Monday after Easter. People who had built snowmen has little round remnants of snow left...but for the most part it was gone.


Another picture from nice neighbor J....thanks again...


Then this was last weekend....okay, all of these were taken in the last three and a half weeks? Can this be normal? Today is yucky misty and overcast...but HOT....well not Africa hot, but about 80 degrees....and humid as all get out. Hot enough for me to all ready turn the AC on....I can't stand that sticky feeling in my own home. Oh well, welcome to Texas weather...even if it is wacky and wonky.....


Did you play?? Let The Kept Woman know....

happy Wednesday

The weather has been weird lately. I had to turn on the AC last night here. Hard to sleep when you are sticking to the sheets.

Thanks for stopping by.

Honey, normal and weather don't go together in a sentence with "Texas." ;)

Hi, thanks for stopping by. The weather over here in Southern Cali sucks too!! It's hotter then hell one day, and cold and windy the next. Desert weather is very weird!! I turned on my AC one day and turned the heat back on that night!

The Kept Woman said...

I second Kami...but yeah, it does get hot in April and that isn't out of the ordinary...as close as that gets to "normal".

Bonus points for Weather!!!

I live in Oklahoma and the weather is basically like Texas. You never know what will happen one day to the next. One thing is for sure, it will be hot hot hot in the summer.

We lived in Corpus Christi for 3 years and I mainly just remember HOT. Hot and beautiful skies. Really miss those sunsets. Amazing.

LOL.. On Good Friday where I live it was 18 degrees outside and had been snowing for a few days and didn't stop snowing until a week after Easter. However I headed south to TN and Florida ;)
My parents who live in the the next town over then me.. Went to TX to visit my sister and her children over Easter thinking they were going to get some sun and come home with Tans.. and they got the snow in Texas.. I just had to LOL at them with that one. Though my 6 year old niece who lives in TX and only sees snow when the comes and visits her Aunt KC and grandma in OH. Loved seeing snow at Easter at her own house.
