Quote for the Week
Mark Twain said: "In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours."
Mr. Clemens must have been in Texas when he made that insightful remark about the vagaries of weather.
Yesterday was the first day of spring. The day started with sunshine for a nano second and a temperature in the 60's. Clouds hid the sun. Black clouds stormed in from the north. Rain fell by the bucketful for nearly a half hour. The clouds moved on, leaving lead gray skies. A slow drizzle began, and the temperature started falling. By late afternoon, the temp had dropped to 46. Today promises much of the same.
Perhaps the last 24 hours didn't exhibit 136 different kinds of weather, but it was sufficiently varied to convince everyone that spring has come to Texas.
