Richard --

I don't want to make your cabin fever any worse, but trees are starting to "bud out" in the Houston area.  It will be "chilly" this week with highs around 60 and lows in the upper 40's. 

The start of patio season / bluebonnet season is just a couple of weeks away which reminds me it's time to make reservations for the Wine & Wildflower Journey in the Texas Hill Country this April --> https://texaswinetrail.com/product/wine-wildflower-journey-2019/

It will also rain along the coast and inland for the next 7 days, starting tonight.  We are still in Gladewater, TX. 45/36 and rain tomorrow, ugh!  Wed. pm, we will be in Rayne, LA. warm & wet for 5 days! :wacko:  3 weeks from now, I'll be giving the lawn, it's first haircut...:lol:

Just the other day I fired up the Traeger and BBQ'd St. Louis Style ribs.  They came out deliciously.

It's nice being able to BBQ in nicer weather all year round, well maybe a little hotter in Summer than other places but that is why I'm a "Summerbird."

I'd take that any day over snow, sleet freezing rain, rusted cars that you still owe on or become junk right after the last payment, car accidents from weather, trapped in the house, only can use the coach 6-7 months a year, all of that is painful! I'll take the sweat any day.....SIGN ME UP!!

Not all of TX.  Here it's 41 and rain! Wind at 15/20 NNE...no fun in sun! ☃️☃️

Hey, I didn't say it wasn't raining!  Well. today, at this particular time of post, it is 55˚.  Below 70 is freezing for me. Have the house heat seat at 71 and still running my little electric element in the room I'm in.

Happy I have auto start on the car so I can warm it up 10 minutes before I have to get into it. Just need that old man's mad dash from house to car. DW's car is garaged - lucky her.

The mesquite trees are budding in the Texas Hill Country

Mesquite TREES? I drove all the way across Texas and still looked for them. Of course I go to florida and look at their RIVERS, our creeks in Alabama are larger than those rivers. And of course there is the mighty Rio Grande in place to keep those Mexicans out of Texas.:ph34r:

Next time you are down this way I can arrange a personal introduction.🤣

I have to agree on the Rio Grande not being much of a deterrent. When I was camped on the banks of the St Lawrence this summer I thought it was a much better barrier along with lake Ontario.

Yipee! Yahoo! Forecast is snow, rain, ice for NH.

Not to burst your bubble, but it snowed in  Las Vegas yesterday. It's 60° in S. Indiana today.
