Winter Weather Advisory Has Texas Back Freezing & Slippery On Sunday
On Friday the high got to 84. Today, the first day of the 3rd month of 2014, the high is predicted to again get in the 80s.
And then tomorrow, Sunday, we are back in the deep freeze with a low of 19.
Sub-freezing with lightning.
Are all these cycles of HOT & COLD wreaking havoc with confused plants?
With thunder likely clapping in the morning I suspect Sunday will not see a repeat of this morning's hot tub hydrotherapy session and its accompanying duo dips in the slightly cool pool. Nor will there be a Sunday repeat of last Sunday's Gateway Park mountain bike ride.
But, today will see some high speed hiking on the Tandy Hills before treasure hunting at Town Talk.
