Weather: Is Texice a new word

February 4th, 2009 · No Comments

It should be!   And then I never heard of sleet being good before.   Personally I hope there are no more ice storms in 2009!

December Drama

August 13th, 2007 · No Comments

  December’s one of my favorite months, and not just because of Christmas. In fact, I can take or leave that overly-commercialized celebration of consumerism, thank you, along with all those other winter solstice events that society’s forced down our throats. (And don’t even get me started about Valentine’s Day.)  No, the reason I enjoy […]

November Weather: Ice Ice Baby

August 12th, 2007 · No Comments

  As you may have guessed, my subtitle for this mini-treatise regarding D/FW’s November weather is, yes, a specimen of that species of literary legerdemain known as the double entendre. In my previous missives, you may have noticed that I’ll occasionally drop in a clever reference to a celebrity who comes from the Metroplex; we’re […]

October Whine

August 8th, 2007 · No Comments

  In most of the country, October and November are the months when people talk about “Indian summer” — by which I suppose they mean warm, summery days in the fall. I’ve never experienced that, because I live in D/FW. We don’t have Indian summer; we just have plain old summer. It takes the Dallas/Fort Worth […]

September: Lingering Echoes of Summer

August 2nd, 2007 · No Comments

Ah, September — or should I call you May revisited? September’s just as mild, though it’s kind of like May in reverse: we get the lingering echoes of summer rather than the foreshadowing. This is about the time D/FW starts to recover from the heinous heat and drought of the annual August onslaught. The recovery […]

What Did We Ever Do to Deserve August?

July 24th, 2007 · No Comments

  So, August in Dallas/Fort Worth: welcome to the blast furnace, mon ami! It’s not uncommon for the area to enjoy triple-digit temperatures every day during the month of August, and you can be sure the Dallas Morning News will count up the Really Hot Days with the same breathless amazement they do every year. […]

July is When We Fry

July 20th, 2007 · No Comments

  So, how hot is July in the Big D? Are you serious? Let me put it this way. This is your brain in July in Dallas/Fort Worth:    Any questions? All smart-assery aside, I rather like this photo. It turned out better than I expected. See, I just got a new digital camera* so […]

June: And the Heat Goes On

July 16th, 2007 · No Comments

  Oh, boy. June in Dallas/Fort Worth. How can I describe it? In fortunate years, the merry, merry month of May flows gracefully into June, bequeathing a few moderately comfortable days before Hell sets in. This year was not a fortunate year; nor are most. I got more June than I bargained for this year, […]

May in D/FW: Foreshadowing the Summer

July 12th, 2007 · No Comments

  As much as I love the spring weather here in Dallas/Fort Worth, I always cringe whenever May rolls around, and my sense of foreboding grows stronger as the month proceeds. It’s not May’s fault: it’s because those fiendish months of June, July, and August are just around the bend, and I know it won’t […]

April: Just Right

July 8th, 2007 · No Comments

  If I had a machine that would let me suspend Dallas/Fort Worth within a single month’s weather forever, I would probably pick April (though May has its charms). April has most, if not all, of the best facets of Metroplex weather: the days are generally warm, the nights generally cool, it rains sometimes (but […]
