Did we skip Spring?

I know Texas is hot but it seems like every year the heat begins way before it should.  Friday, March 30th it was 92 degrees and Saturday March 31st it got to a whopping 96 degrees. 

I do not know what the temperature was today because the weather channel will not report today’s official high until tomorrow but I can tell you it was equally hot.  To make matters worst the electricity went out at 6:00 p.m. and did not come back on till 9:06 p.m.  Why?  I have no idea.  It rained maybe three drops but we did have a nice lighting and thunder show but not bad enough to have caused the grid to go out.

I must admit I did get a little concerned because I brought back a lot a perishable food from Houston.  The electricity going out for a couple of hours including one time up to 24 hours is common place in Del Rio and even more common in southern Val Verde County.  Funny we were all in the dark but could see the lights in Mexico shining brightly…now there is something wrong with that!

I was looking at my last post and I see that there is two things underlined in blue and with a clicky (something I have no idea how to do), is this something new from Google?  Gee, I sure hope not.

How funny, it was there when I used Google Chrome but now that I am using Internet Explorer, I do not see it…weird!

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.


  1. Was 97 here that day, but not so bad the next 2. I think we were the nation's hi.
    Somehow, we never have spring, just go straight into HOT.

  2. Your right Trouble...we go straight into hot :(

  3. Been plenty warm around here to. Seems like it always goes straight from Winter to Summer here and very little time to enjoy Spring or Fall. :(

    1. That is so true for your area Tffn, that is why I was sad to see the mesquite bloom because I knew I could no longer make a trip to South Brewster county at least not until Chili Cook-off time :(
