Well I wonder what the weather looks like this morning? I think I'll just look out the window and see.... Well lock me up and call me Hillary! It's rainy, cloudy, and chilly, I never would've guessed that in a million years. I think I'll just go back to bed.
Needless to say there's not a lot going on today I figured I would hang around the trailer, do a little cleaning and try to stay warm. But Boondork, why do you need to stay warm on the Texas Gulf Coast isn't it warm there already? Well no it isn't, in fact it's kind of cold. I wanted to see how cold it was so I clicked on my bookmarked Weather Underground website and found out that it's 55° outside at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Then just for the heck of it I clicked on my old hometown of Woodland Park CO. and found out that it's 51°. Now something is wrong with that. How can Woodland Park a town that's almost 9000 feet high in the Colorado mountains, in the middle of December be almost as warm as Corpus Christi Texas, 3 feet above sea level, and right next to the warm Gulf of Mexico be almost the same temperature ? That ain't right.
Not only that, but I will guarantee you that the 51° in Woodland Park with a 20% humidity feels a whole lot better than Corpus Christi at 55° and 80%. humidity. People tell me that this weather won't stay like this much longer, that it's normally very nice around here, and I believe that, but so far the weather reports still aren't looking very good. At least by Monday it's “supposed”to be warm, still overcast, but warm.
I think tomorrow I'll go into town and do some shopping, I need a few groceries, and to get out of the Arctic Fox for a while. Now that I've learned of some places that are close by where I can fish, I'm going to carry my rod and reel around in the truck with me so I can fish when the mood hits me. I was surprised at all of the public areas around here that are maintained by various forms of government just for the sole purpose of fishing. And if the weather will just get a little better I plan on taking advantage of all of them.
