Early Spring in FEBRUARY!?

I know for many of you that makes no sense as you are buried under feet and feet of snow over a loooong time. But here in Texas, we’ve hit an early spring. Well, actually, almost summer. 90 degrees a couple of days ago was nuts. In January, we had one bad week of sleet and freezing rain. Pretty much everything shuts down for that kind of weather here. LOL


Most of you probably find that hard to believe because you keep going even in blizzards. Texas cities have few sanding trucks, and drivers are clueless about driving on the white stuff. Anyway, my point is we had some winter weather, but now we’re full on into Spring. Buds are popping out and jonquils and daffodils are blooming.

The bad thing about this is we’ll probably still have another freeze. Hope it’s not too bad and do in all our greenery. Normally, at this time of year we’re in the 50s and 60s and for the next ten days, our low will be 50 and our highs will be in the mid to upper 70s. Just nuts. (Way better than 90!)

Just a little later from the pic above.

Another good thing that’s happened is our gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. I’ve sprinkled pics throughout this post because they just make me happy. I figured if you’re some of the folks buried in feet of snow, you could use something to make you smile.

Fire in the sky. Sunset.

My family has always teased me about my fascination with the weather. And they’re right, I’m a bit obsessed. Mainly, I don’t like to be hot or cold, so I want to know how to dress for whatever the weather is. My favorite app on my cell is the weather app. Especially, as we move into real spring with severe storms. I will change my plans based on the weather forecasts. LOL

Lake is really low. Sunset.

In most of my books, seasons/weather usually play an important role. For instance, TRUTH BE TOLD takes place mostly in winter at Christmas time. VERMONT ESCAPE covers several seasons but fall is the predominant one as it is in ACT OF TRUST. THE THEATRE and SECOND ACT are full-on summer stories.  

For Book 11, my WIP I’ve set it during the spring, and I’m struggling with it. I think spring is not my favorite season, mainly because we have so many severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. I guess I’ll have to include some of that in this story, and I’m not happy about that either. LOL

Heads up for special sales: 3/5-11 SMASHWORDS Half-Price sale of all of my books except: SECOND ACT and ACT OF TRUST. Then 2/12-18 you can get VULNERALBLE for 99 Cents on all venues. https://books2read.com/u/b5qk5w
