Winter in Texas?

Traveling in winter? To me, seeing a picnic table covered in snow, is just somehow wrong! That is one cold, puffed up Mocking Bird posing for a picture. Snow covered bridges leading down to snow covered beaches? Windchill temperature holding at -6 f. BRR!

Weather report:

The weather was 75 degrees on Saturday.                                                                                       It snowed on Sunday and brought a winter advisory. The windchill factor was well below zero.  Monday it will warm up to 35. Tuesday it will be in the 50’s and by the end of the week it shall be in the 70’s yet again.

“Winter, winter go away. Let the sun shine on whom it may. Warm up the earth. Let the flowers bloom, may they be like the colors of the rainbow. May the color white be only in the daisy’s.”

  1. B-r-r-r-r indeed. We’ve had another cold advisory and the weather improves, momentarily. However, no 70-degree-type weather. 😀
    Love your photos.

    We southerners just aren’t cut out for the cold! Typical Spring craziness here too. 70 something yesterday and down to freezing today! My bird feeders are overrun. Oh, that’s a Mockingbird in the pics. 🙂

  3. I agree that we “southeners” aren’t cut out for the cold. Neither are we “R.V. er’s.” I heard that retirees who live in r.v.s escape to Arizona and Texas to avoid the winter. Ahh? What happened that theory? I am so cold. My toes and fingers are icicles proceeding from the four ends of my body. I can’t wait until tomorrow. Which pic is a mocking bird? On your page or mine?

  4. You are right the picture is a mocking bird and not a sparrow! I looked it up on

    “If you’ve been hearing an endless string of 10 or 15 different birds singing outside your house, you might have a Northern Mockingbird in your yard. These slender-bodied gray birds apparently pour all their color into their personalities. They sing almost endlessly, even sometimes at night, and they flagrantly harass birds that intrude on their territories, flying slowly around them or prancing toward them, legs extended, flaunting their bright white wing patches.”

    Thank you for your correction.

    70 to -6 and back to 70 all in a week. It is unnatural.

  7. Great photos. Are you working there or just visiting? Any plans to move further south?
