I've said many times that Texans love to talk about the weather. I guess it's because we get such odd and extreme weather here. Whether it's the historic snowfall or hail stones crashing through our skylights or the fact that it reaches 9000 degrees in July, we really do love to talk about the weather. And people love to complain when those poor weather people on TV mess up. But I realized something on Friday: No one ever complains when the TV weather people get it wrong in a good way.
All week last week they were forecasting rain and thunderstorms for Friday. These were supposed to clear up by mid-afternoon. But Friday was beautiful all day long. And no one complained.
At most of my Meals on Wheels stops, the clients usually ask me, "How are you today?" or something like that. On Friday I kept saying, "I'm great! I thought I'd be sloshing around in the rain and it's gorgeous out here!" But I certainly wasn't complaining about the TV weather people being wrong. Nobody was.
