While folks up north and to the east enjoyed our warm Texas weather this past weekend, spring came to north Texas with an attitude, or a hangover, or both. It must have been some party Ms. Spring attended.
We had rain, and some more rain, and then snow, and some more snow. Also, saying that we had a bit of a breeze would be an understatement. The squirrels adapted by sprouting wings. They gracefully flew through the trees when they were brave enough to come out of hiding. Rabbits were getting a little extra air on their hops, easily avoiding Cat while he slept on a warm binkie snuggled up next to me in the warm house.
Hum...maybe my twisted view of local "wildlife" was caused by a different kind of hops.
Although the snow blew away by mid-afternoon on Sunday, there was enough of it in some areas to cause some serious issues with our roads. Texans with spring fever hit by a freak snowstorm in the dark is not a good mix. It would be similar to rednecks in tuxedos singing opera.
Yeah. I know. That's enough whining. It's Texas. The weather changes quickly.
TODAY IS BEAUTIFUL! I'm having a bit of an issue with lead foot. I have to drive through numerous 30-mile zones to get to my part-time job and I try to keep it under 40. I'm having a hard time today.
Maybe I was in a hurry to get home and write this post.
I know I was in a hurry to get out of the cold water at the gym. Maybe Ms. Spring left some of her blasted frigid white stuff in the pool?
Sheesh! I did a lot of full-stroke swimming this morning eliminating some of the drills that I normally do because they don't keep my heart rate up high enough to stay warm.
Yeah. I know. I'm whining again. LOL.
Have a happy Monday!
I have some photos from my St. Patrick's Day Triathlon. Enjoy!
