The weather in Hampton Roads

I think that weather is a little personal.  While I am freezing and wearing two sweaters in my house my husband and daughter are in shorts and tank tops.  My son is the in between person in the house.

The local weather today will hit a high of 55 with sun and clouds.  Pleasant, very pleasant.

My mother came to visit one year in May, and it was in the 60's and low 70's.  She wore a full winter coat any time she stepped out of the house go a cold.  Hmmm.  We decided our plans of her moving close to live with me were not going to happen.

We visit Minnesota my husband's home state every two years, and while I wear the full winter coat, and I feel being outside is painful, I have seen my nephews in 10 degree weather show up in shorts.

We get very little snow, and when it happens school close, ice form in the roads and there are so many accidents that unless you have injuries the police won't come to you.  ( It happened to me last February)

Or the weather man says there is going to snow; schools close and we have a warm and sunny day.  It happened a few weeks ago.

So back to Hampton Roads or: Or... Norfolk, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News, Hampton, Williamsburg, Surry County, York county and maybe more cities depending on who you ask.

I think I will hang out here in Texas for now.  But if I ever come for a visit I will make it a point to say hello.
