You just never know about the weather! When we moved to Kentucky from Louisiana, I was so happy because I thought I was moving away from humidity and I could have straight hair and less allergies. Owensboro, KY sits right on the Ohio River, right in the Ohio Valley and the humidity and allergies were worse than they ever were in Louisiana. I had never seen snow . . ever really! I think when I was in the 5th or 6th grade, we had a dusting of snow but not enough to really call snow. So, when we moved to KY in October, I couldn’t wait for the snow. The first night we got snow, I was up all night watching it. I kept waking Vince up to give him updates. He had grown up in upstate NY and he was not impressed!
When we moved to MO, I wasn’t too surprised at the winter weather since the weekend we went there to look for a house, they got 20+ inches of snow. The summer weather surprised me because the summers there were hotter than anywhere we’d ever lived.
Here in Texas, we knew the summers were going to be hot and dry and I knew we’d have a bit of winter weather but I really didn’t expect snow ever! We had predictions for ice and snow today and we’ve had both!
Poor Vince! He was asleep in his chair and I went running in the house to be sure he saw the snow. Nope .. he hadn’t seen it and nope, he wasn’t real interested and nope, he wasn’t impressed. Maybe when you grow up with massive amounts of snow, you’re never happy to see it and maybe when you grow up without ever seeing snow, you’re always happy to see it. What about you? Happy to see it? Never want to see it again? It definitely makes a difference when you know you won’t have to shovel it and in a few days the temps will be back up to 70º.
