This Week...Houston in February

This Week...Houston in February


If you’ve lived in Houston for any length of time you know that February is overcast, cold, and damp.  With the exception of a few days, Houston weather did not disappoint.



Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Susan Ertz



However, that’s gave us a good excuse to stay in and work on the house.




Be true to yourself. Make each day a masterpiece. Help others. Drink deeply from good books. Make friendship a fine art. Build a shelter against a rainy day. John Wooden




I’m hoping that the rain will hold off this weekend because my brother and his band are playing at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo BBQ Cookoff for one of the teams. They’ve been doing this for over 14 years!





While the temperature is cooler than Florida, we had our rainy days there as well. I don’t mind them because the same old weather can get boring.  


Every man has a rainy corner of his life whence comes foul weather which follows him. Jean Paul



The weather in Houston in February is a small tradeoff for being closer to the family.




Have a weekend full of sunshine.


And one more quote to brighten your day….

Save a boyfriend for a rainy day - and another, in case it doesn't rain. Mae West

The change in weather may take some getting used to, but it's not like you went all crazy and moved here. LOL

HI Kathy Streib - I always enjoyed your beach pictures and wondered how you would top those wonderful shots.   Well, I love the artistic shots in your new Houston location. You are a photo artist.

Sunny, beachy weather is wonderful, but not worth keeping over being far from family.

Kathy Streib There is a reason Mae West is one of my role models! Glad to see you are adjusting to the change of scenery and making do. It's a big difference in your life to leave warm beaches, but you've got the joy of family closeness to sustain you.

Sounds like you are getting settled in, coping with the weather (that is at least familiar to you) and really enjoying being close to family again!!

Oh we had rain right up until the weekend here too, Kathy and we were SO darned happy to see the sunshine!

You're right, it's a great time to get caught up indoors...and spending time with family is SO worth the weather trade-off!
