Looking Forward to Some Warmer Weather!

The weather forecasters are forecasting low temperatures in the 50's and highs in the 70's, possibly some 80's, this week! I am really looking forward to a nice long break from the cold that we got last week and I wish it would stay warm, but the weather forecasters are thinking that another arctic front is going to pass through on Friday. I am not sure how cold the temperatures are going to get, but with words like "arctic" I know that it is going to get cold again. I am hoping that it won't get that cold and that the cold will only last a couple of days, instead of a week, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
At least I get to enjoy some nice warm temps in the 70's, maybe 80's before the arctic front! Also NOAA forecasted a above average winter, so I am hoping we won't get too many of these arctic cold fronts, but they said that there is a possibility that they could be wrong, so I'll just have to hope.
Maybe if they are wrong and it gets cold enough, we might get some snow! That would be fun, but that's probably not going to happen!

Thanksgiving

I am looking forward to sitting down and eating Thanksgiving dinner with my family and am looking forward to some warmer weather after Thanksgiving. I've had enough of this cold! I do enjoy the cold when it snows, but it's not going to and I've had enough of this cold, clouds, and rain! I can't wait until the temperatures warm back up.
The temperature is supposed to get back into the 50's and 70's on Sunday, or Monday. Also it is going to be sunny. I can't wait to see the sun! I haven't seen the sun in awhile. Even though it will be sunny tomorrow, it is supposed to going to be cold. Temperatures are forecasted to be almost freezing tomorrow morning and the high is only going to get into the high 40's, but at least. I will finally get to see the sun! I can't wait to see the sun! I wonder what it's been up to?
Hey has anybody noticed how bright the sun has been lately? I've noticed since the beginning of November the sun has been brighter, maybe because it is nearing the winter equinox, where the sun shines the strongest, or is directly overhead? I don't remember, but I've noticed that the sun is shinning brighter than it did before and I think the sun does this every year during this time of the year the sun seems to shine brighter.
My eyes always seem to be blinded every time that I look through my houses windows, where they didn't before November, so I think it has something to do with the winter equinox. I don't know, I was just wondering....
Anyway, I am really looking forward to eating Thanksgiving dinner with my family and I have had enough of this cold and I can't wait for it to get warm again.

Hoping For Some Possible Sleet Tuesday

I read on the NOAA weather report this morning that there is a slight chance of some sleet, or maybe snow for Houston on Tuesday and I am hoping to see some sleet, or snow. Houston has been getting alot of sleet, snow weather these past couple of years since 2008. Houston does have a climate for some possible snow every year, but Houston rarely gets to see any snow, or winter participation. The only time that I saw snow in Houston was back on Dec. 4, 2009, when Houston got an inch of snow. The only other time that I had seen Houston get any winter precipitation was a year before in Dec. 2008, when Houston got a winter mix of sleet and rain. We actually had a sleet and snow storm on the Christmas eve of 2004 in Houston. I would say it was my first white Christmas. Only about an half an inch, or less of  the sleet and snow had accumulated on the ground during Christmas eve when most of the sleet and snow fell. The sleet and snow were still on the leaves of the trees on Christmas morning, so I guess it counts as having a white Christmas. We also had a bad ice storm back in the mid 90's, either 1996, or maybe 1995. So Houston has gets some winter weather. Houston even has a annual snowfall average of .01 inches per year, last I checked.Houston hasn't had much winter precipitation since 2009. Only a few flurries and ice pellets in 2011 and 2012. I don't remember if Houston got a winter precipitation in 2010. I think some snow flurries, or sleet might have fallen in Houston in 2010, also.
I am hoping Houston will get it's annual .01 inches of snow this year too, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see!

Protect Your Pets!

Hi, I don't know if any of y'all read Scambusters, or have heard of this scam before, but I wanted to share it with y'all just in-case. As I told y'all before I get a email from Scambusters every Wednesday notifying me of the latest scams and yesterday I read about the worst scam ever. This scam involves stealing your pets! I think that's terrible that someone would steal your pet and then try and resale it. Luckily Simon is too afraid to go outside anyway, so I don't have to worry about him getting stolen.
I just wanted to tell y'all about this to make sure that if you let your pets outside to make sure that they are tagged and that if you are looking to buy a pet, to make sure that it is from a reliable source and not someone's stolen pet! That's horrible! Here's the link to the article if any of you want to read it.

Almost Over!

Our first arctic cold front just passed through, the temperature supposedly got into the mid 30's this morning, where I live, I haven't checked yet. Fall is almost over! Winter is almost here, just one month and twenty days away!
Not that it really matters over here in Houston, but I really don't like the winters over here because the temperatures make too many drastic changes, one day it is cold and then the next day it is warm, which is just really frustrating to deal with, make up your mind, warm, or cold. I really just wish it would stay warm. I can't wait for spring!

Shinning Angel

There was that view of a shinning angel, as Jerry biked down that path. Jerry was having a feeling for adventure that morning, before he left for school. That late sunny afternoon, after school was over, Jerry decided to pedal his bike towards downtown as fast as he could, he pedaled hard, faster and faster, not wanting to stop! Until he saw it again, saw that shinning angel, in her giant smiling face, looking down on all of the cities citizens, going to and fro about their business.
Jerry really liked the angel and enjoyed seeing it every time he ventured into town. He always wondered about it, but not much was ever said, not even his parents knew much about it, but then again Jerry didn't want to tell his parents that he'd been in downtown without them. "Your not supposed to ride your bike that far!" They would scold Jerry every time he would come home late from school. Jerry knew that he was going to get some scolding this time too, but he didn't care. He just wanted to stand by his angel, his giant smiling angel that stood in the center of town.
