The answer, I guess, lies in our expectations. When we went to a resort area like those I've named, we knew what to expect. More important, the people there knew what to expect. The cold weather and snow were not only normal conditions, their very presence made possible such activities as skiing and snowmobiling. Whereas, when the weather changed from mild and sunny to cold and threatening here in North Texas, one would think we were in for a two-week siege if you judged by the lines and bare shelves at grocery and hardware stores.
Well, as I write this the weather people are predicting seventy degrees for the day it's due to post, but when I look out the window of my office I see snow and ice. I guess it's true. If you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait a minute. And probably by this summer, I'll be complaining about the heat.
NOTE: Some of you may have remember Frank Peretti, author of numerous works of Christian fiction, including This Present Darkness. Frank is back, and I have his advice for writers and a link to his latest work here on Friday. Hope you'll come back to read it.
