Oh, Joy!

It looks like we are going to get some more warm temperatures again this week! Then we'll get some more cold early next week....

These are some pictures that I took of my houses back yard today. The morning was a little cold, but the high temperature supposedly got to 72 degrees during the afternoon. It felt a little warm/slightly cool. But it looks like we are going to get a few more warm days until another arctic cold front passes through and it becomes cold again. We may also get some severe storms later this week, so I am going to need to keep an eye on that!
I was watching the weather channel today and they said that east Texas is going to have a torcon of 5/10 when the severe storms pass through sometime Friday, Saturday, or early Sunday. So, I guess that means that Houston has a 50% chance of seeing a tornado! Uh-oh, that's not good! I hope that changes.
And here is a picture of the pile of leaves that I began raking today.

I haven't really gotten that far with it, I just put the leaves into piles.
Also Ah! What is that!

  1. I'm feeling JOY about the warm ones, like yesterday and today were here, and more like "oh joy " :-/ about the cold ones returning. I'm really liking this 70 degree stuff in December! You have a beautiful yard, some TALL trees there, and a lot of leaf raking to do! It's nice to be outside when it's warm though... enjoy!

    1. Lol, ya, I meant it in a happy tense!

      Thanks! : )

  2. Curiously I have never really moaned about the weather. Yesterday in Adelaide, South Australia it got to 43.3 C luckily as I live closer to the coast it was a cooler by a degree or two! There are those that moan if there is a frost in winter but they are probably wearing short sleeves still. We all adapt and I am certainly grateful for experiencing other extremes in Europe. As you illustrate nature adapts too. Great pics for this time in the year.

    1. Yup, i'm not moaning, I just like to talk about the weather!
      : )

  3. I think we are sending the cool weather your way, Joseph. That was a lot of leaves to be raking!
