Day 172: Beautiful Spring Day

It is gorgeous out there today after all the major storms that came through the area last night and early this morning.  Lot’s of thunder, lightning, rain, wind, and hail, which caused a lot of damage in some areas.  That means it is officially springtime in Texas.  So, in exchange for being able to enjoy beautiful weather, we also get to hear warning sirens in the middle of the night and scary weather reports telling us to take shelter away from exterior walls and windows and in bathtubs covered with mattresses.  And then to make it even better, we have to speak with insurance adjusters about the damage done to our cars and roofs by the hail and wind.  And fallen trees need to be removed, fences replaced, and debris cleaned up.  The best part is, within a day or two of everything being put back together, another storm can come along and tear it all up again.  But we get to enjoy sunny, warm days for a couple of months before the heat begins to build to almost intolerable levels.  And even then we will have the storms.  Actually, we can have storms in the fall and dead of winter as well.  But that’s the price we pay for being Texans.  Life is never boring here even though we sometimes wish that it were.  I think that no matter where you live, there is some variant of this.  It’s just life.  It’s all just life and we have to learn to live with it.
