Some Like It Hot

Tell Me Your Story Tuesday.

First of all, let me say I LOVE TEXAS.
I have to, right? Only someone crazy in love would tolerate this kind of behavior. 

Want to hear something sad? The above graphic represents  a "cool down" from last week. That's right, folks. 106 degrees is considered a "cool down". Just shoot me. 

In case you haven't noticed, I am slightly delirious from the heat and struggling with coherency today. Partially because this wonderful song has been stuck in my head all day!




Ooh, 
Eddie Murphy before 
he was the voice of Donkey.
What else could you ask for?

Okay, enough about the heat.
The truth is I love Texas because I hate snow.

Of course, my beloved betrayed me this year. The whole state basically shut down for a week because of a snowstorm. Those of you who live in places where it snows all the time and think we might have overreacted. Remember: Snow in Texas is always proceeded by a layer of ice. We don't have chains for our tires. We don't own parkas  and we only dress in layers if it is fashionable.

I will suffer through the heat and the occasional blizzard. (Trust me, in our world, it was a blizzard!) for wearing short sleeves into October and the beautiful spring days of March and April. 

So, tell me your story. What is it like where you live? What do you love about it? What do you hate about it?
