Merry Xmas and Happy New Year

Merry Xmas, Happy New Year and all that jazz.  Yes, I know its been a while. But we were gone on a trip and got back just before Christmas. And we got back to strange weather. It was warm – low 70’s warm. But this week, between Christmas and New Year, its cooling down. Our highs are in the low to mid 40’s. We haven’t had much rain, just little dribs and drabs. For example today we’ve gotten 0.25 inches of rain, mainly in the form of a heavy mist, and at 2pm its 41 degrees.  So cool, and damp, but not wet enough to call it rain. The weather said we should have gotten rain the other day, but that didn’t happen. They also said this would be a colder than usual winter. That hasn’t really happened either. We had a cold snap before Thanksgiving, but that was really it. Its so warm some of the plants are trying to set out new buds. Not the best timing. This is Texas. We could still get cold in January and February. We’ll see what happens.
