It is so cold in Dallas; Brett Favre was texting pictures of his chestnuts roasting over an open fire.
19 damn degrees at 1:00 in the afternoon!! This is the coldest it has been the entire time I have lived in Dallas.
They say that this is a record.
I grew up on the North East side of thangs, so cold weather ain't no big whoop to me. Matter of fact I prefer the seasons to do exactly what they are supposed to do. Winter is supposed to be cold; Spring is supposed to be warm; Summer is supposed to be hot; Fall is supposed to be cool.
That is how I prefer the seasons to be.
I have gotten spoiled living out here in Texas. There are only two seasons out here...Well... one and a half..
Summer and summer-fall.
It might get down in the 30's here during the "winter". It might freeze 3 days out of the year, but at noon the next day it is usually 75 or 80 degrees.
Snow might last a couple of hours after it falls and then it is gone.
So this shit here today is a total surprise to me.
19 damn degrees for the high yesterday, today, tomorrow and the day after!!
What the hot ass hell is goings on around here!!
I ain't used to this shit!! I had forgotten what Winter is supposed to feel like...
And I thought that Wisconsin was cold last month....
But anyways....This is supposed to be Winter, right?
I mean it is supposed to be cold at this time of the year, right?
Texas is finally catching up with the rest of the country...
Let me explain that last statement.....
If you are a Texas implant like myself...then you know that Texas is a little late on getting the word on shit.
Texas is always like 2 years behind the rest of the country when it comes to anything....music, fashion, slang whatever....
How do you think the "holiday" Junetenth came about?
These Black folk out here did not know they were free until 2 years after the rest of us were sharecropping on Mr. Charlies farms instead of being slaves on them. Wait....is there a difference? Anyways......
Yep.... it is so cold that my balls have turned into ovaries.....
