Brrrr! -- Fri., Oct. 26

When Bob went jogging yesterday, the temperature was 93 degrees around 6:00 p.m. In the middle of the night it poured rain for a little while. When I woke up this morning it was 58 degrees, windy, and the temperature dropped a degree even though it usually warms up during the day. Today's high is supposed to remain at 57 F. with wind gusts to 23 mph and a chance of thunderstorms before 1:00 p.m. Brrr. Time to turn on the heat. Our low tonight will be 49, tomorrow night 43, and Sunday night 44. That's getting downright cold for south Texas. 

The thunderstorm and rain hit at 11:00 a.m. Temperature dropped to 51 F. Love that booming thunder! 

The kitties and I are hunkered down:
"Big, scary storm. Good thing we gotz each other."

"Political ads...quick change the channel!"
It's now 1:15 p.m. and the thunder, lightning and rain let up, still breezy though. The temperature went down to 49 F. (That's supposed to be our overnight low tonight.) Guess the temperature won't be climbing much.

Today I had chicken noodle soup for lunch. Very warm and comforting on this chilly, rainy day.

Tomorrow, we're having lunch with our friends Jim and Peri of Tales from the Camping House. Looks like after lunch will be a museum day. Too cold for a walk.

Now that the dentist has given the all-clear to travel with broken teeth, I can stop worrying and finish the rest of my "to-do's" before our trip: hair, nails, job interview, packing.

Hello to E Squared and Mui of Two to Travel's Phaeton Journeys who are about a month out from retirement/full-timing and are up to their elbows in packing. They are no strangers to travel, having just returned from Turkey (Mui's homeland). They "talk Turkey" in a blog dedicated just to that...you can find it by clicking on a button on their home page.

I called the travel agency where there is a possibility of a part-time job starting in January. The owner wants to talk to me about working there. She is not available before our trip as she is out of town until Tuesday. I will call her in December. 

Not much else planned today. Just taking it easy. 

Travel Bug out.

  1. We, too had the cold front move in. Our high today is supposed to be 46 but we aren't expecting any rain. Too bad as we are still in a drought.

    That would be an awesome place to work, wouldn't it? (or at least it sounds like it would)

    Take it easy and stay warm.

  2. I am just so glad you are healing well. Looking forward to hearing all about your big trip to Australia! Also, will have to call my daughter who lives in San Antonio but is commuting to Corpus for a couple of weeks. Last time I talked to her it was still 90!

  5. We are getting that rain tonight and cold weather starting tomorrow here in Ohio. They said we may even get a chance of snow this week. We need to get out of here FAST!

    1. We've been hearing about the big cold front dropping down from Canada. Your temps will be a lot colder than ours!

  6. This little cold snap was a nice relief from the Texas heat. Can't wait to read about your trip to Australia. We'd like to visit there one day.

  8. Hopefully you will not be impacted too much more by Sandy. We are praying that the east coast does not get hurt the way the weathermen are predicting.

    1. Actually, our thunderstorms were not from Hurricane Sandy, just thunderstorms in south Texas.
