On Saturday, it was a pretty warm day, with a bit of severe weather around.
On Sunday, it was rainy…and then sunny…and then rainy again.
Last night and today we’ve seen a bit of snow in the air.
Tonight, we’ll be in the 20s!
And by the end of this week, it’ll be back in the 70s the way it looks.
The way weather can change day to day…hour to hour…even minute to minute sometimes…is fascinating.
I’ve seen cloudless skies blossom into tornadic thunderstorms in less than an hour.
I’ve been outside (on numerous occasions) and observed the instant rain changed over to snow.
I even experienced a couple of heat bursts in Oklahoma from collapsing thunderstorms and literally watched the thermometer rise 20 degrees (from 76 to 96) in a few minutes…at 11:30 at night.
Weather is always changing…it is absolutely dynamic.
While it is a bit of a nuisance to have to wear a winter coat at this time of year, I kinda dig it.
Average weather is just so…average.
I like the record breaking stuff.
I like the rockin’ and rollin’ weather.
I like blizzards and I like tornadoes.
Now, if there was any way I could control the weather so that the wild weather didn’t affect homes and farms and livelihoods…I would.
But I can’t.
I can only keep doing my best to predict what will happen.
And I always get a bit more of a spring in my step when a severe weather event or big winter storm is looming.
Right now, neither one is on the immediate horizon…although it sure feels cold enough for the latter.
So, bundle up, have a cup of hot cocoa, and throw a log on the fire.
It’s gonna be a cold night…but more May-like weather is returning soon.
