Hot Playground

Hot Playground

Awesome comment-leaver Sarah brought something to my attention yesterday that usually would never cross my mind: how hot it is in December. . . in Texas.  Our high temperature yesterday was 79 degrees, just a week shy of the first day of winter.  But I might not have noticed because 79 is a cool breeze compared to the 107 we hit over the summer this year.  Blah!!!  (Thanks for the cruel reminder of how season-less Texas can be...)

Oddly enough, earlier this year, we had over a foot of snow!  (Back in January, in case you're wondering.)  It was, without a doubt, the most snow I have ever seen in Texas.  In remembrance, here is a photo of the 6 foot snowman we made... It was as tall as me!!!

And this is a picture of a typical Texas playground, covered in snow:

It's about 80-90 degrees here every day in Buenos Aires. Of course, it's summer here.

This morning was the first morning since last week that it was above zero in Northern Minnesota. I melt at 90.

aaah cole, I remember that snow, it was so much fun and the most snow I have ever seen in my life.. We got "stuck" at the bar/hotel... It was a little cooler today so it felt almost like fall! LOL

Louisiana has similar issues, although we don't stay as warm as you Texans. We'll get snow maybe once every nine or ten years. Two inches and they'll shut the state down. It's fabulous.
