So this is going out to all you people in the Lone Star state.

The current temperatures at the time this is being written is 24 °F/-4 °C . Rather chilly, I’d say. Wouldn’t you?

But you know what? This is also the month of February. Yes I know, its only the third day of it so far, and you’ve been so used to the month of January. And believe me- for personal reasons, if it could remain 30th of January, that would be fine with me. But I digress.

For this area, the forecasts and meterologists have seemed to have gotten together and devised a scheme of dun, dun, dun, “Winter Weather”.

What does this mean? It means that there’s a 70% chance of precipitation. Mainly, “the white stuff”. Sounds important, doesn’t it?

How much snow will this area of Texas receive? Go ahead, I’ll give you a moment to take a guess.

Time’s up!!

“.. up to an INCH!”. HOLY CRAP!!! Someone run me to the grocery store for batteries, bottled water, milk, bread, canned goods, and matches.

Really people? You’re going to go absolutely insane because it might snow and accumulations will be possibly not up to an inch?? You know, the stuff probably won’t even stick around for long. For one, its going to happen overnight. So probably by the time Billy Gene Rotten Mouth has awakened in the morning (because they have either delayed or cancelled school over this), there won’t be anything left on the ground for him to play with. And you’re stuck in the house all day with children because the temperatures are still going to remain as cold as it has been these past few days. Good luck!

Now I know that some parts of the state have been hit hard by this weather that airports in major cities have closed. I feel for them. I honestly do. As well as I feel for the rest of the country who has been dealing with headaches brought on by this winter weather. But central and even south Texas?? Would you just get a grip!?

Temperatures up to this point have been BELOW freezing for a few days now. Everyone saw it coming. They knew it would arrive. And yes, I am aware that some of you must brave the evil and wretched remains of what may or may not be an inch or two on the ground. But its still going to be cold. With or without it. And this is why you should have spent the $55 at Wal-Mart to buy a hat, coat, and gloves. Yes, I looked it up to see how much it all would cost. Plus, you’ve had since last winter to do so. Maybe the money you spent for those those cases of beer you bought last Saturday should have been used for something more useful as news has been reporting about this big storm system for several weeks.

If you are the kind of person that is cold natured. Its called “dressing in layers”. The rest of you, cover yourself. Do what you got to do to protect your family, pets, and plants.

It is cold outside. No kidding! Its winter. No matter what woodchuck did or did not see his/her shadow the other day. Winter isn’t going to just disappear overnight. And besides, don’t worry about how long its going to be frigid outside. In a few months, ya’ll will be bitching about how bloody HOT it is in Texas.
