I'm not saying it's hot in Texas, but two hobbits just threw a ring in my back yard.

Well, paulh, keep in mind how mind-bogglingly vast Texas is. It's nearly 1000 miles across. It often snows in the Panhandle while we swelter along the coast. It has snowed along the coast, a few times in my life, but the snow rarely sticks to anything but car roofs. We actually got more than an inch at my house near Galveston Bay back in '72. My sister and I left bald, green strips across the lawn as we struggled to make a snow man. (There's a wonderful picture of my little sister (at age 3) asleep on the toilet wearing her little winter coat, wore out from rolling snowballs.

Scarborough was a grand place to visit for me in 2001. So was Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and Castle Howard smiley - ok

1,000 miles is a long distance. I've heard that if you need an automobile part in Texarkana, and the "local" parts depot is in El Paso, it's actually closer to get the part from Chicago. smiley - shrug

In terms of climate zones, Galveston is maybe Zone 9 or Zone 10, while Amarillo is in Zone 7. The northern tip of the state is in Zone 6, which is comparable to Boston.

What shall we converate about next?

Today is Father's Day in the U.S.
It's rainy here, but that's isn't unusual.
I've been looking at Mock Orange trees, but I'm not sure I want to be mocked.
It's too nice outside to be grumpy, even if it is drizzling a bit. smiley - smiley

Fathers Day? Well, there's nothing new about my father except he would have turned 100 come November, but he died in 1973 and I'm now 13 years older than him. How does one prepare for meeting him if there is an afterlife smiley - huh

But there's always the weather to converate about. It's quite good here at the moment but nothing compares to last year's heat and drought. Except for our farmers and a few others we enjoyed it tremendously smiley - smiley
