A Wild and Windy Day

Yesterday, it was a beautiful, sunny 83 degree day.  Got to love "winter" here in south, central Texas.  I was sitting on the patio reading Highways magazine and wishing I was somewhere sitting outside the RV.  Harley was busy enticing me to throw the ball for him.  He is obsessed with round ball-like objects.  Forget the stick, those are for chewing.  Gretchen and Willy were wandering around the yard. All was good.  About 6:30PM, the wind picked up a bit as the cold front started to move in.  Within an hour, the temperature had dropped 10 degrees, then 15 degrees.



At 8:30 this morning, the temperature was 51 degrees and wind chime ringing windy.  Since it had been predicted to go down to 34 degrees, we were once again glad the weathermen had it wrong.  The dachsies decided to take a nap and wait for it to warm up again.



At noon, it was 60 degrees.  I'm guessing we will hit 64 degrees if the wind keeps coming and going.  Still not bad for a "winter" day.  Actually, it is close to the norms for this time of year.  But then, we are not living in a land of norms.  And we much prefer the 75 to 85 degree weather with lots of sun.

Tomorrow the temps will be on the rise again.  We don't miss the northern cold and snow.  I'm not sure it even looks good in a picture anymore.  lol

I guess all is good with the world in San Antonio TX.

  2. Loved San Antonio the one time I visited. A beautiful place in Spring and Fall. Not sure about Summer though!

    1. Hmmmm. I wonder what happened but, whatever it was, I'm glad it is working for you again.

  7. Harley always looks slightly crazed. I like it.

    1. His eyes are perfectly normal but there is something about the looks he gives you sometimes that have a slightly crazed look, okay, sometimes more than slightly. He is the best natured little dog though. His only craziness is his addition to ball playing.
