Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

National Weather Service Talking About Warmer Winter In Texas

Last winter was supposed to be a mild one for my home in North Texas. For a big chunk of that time, it certainly appeared to be that way.

Uh, whoops. There came the middle of February, and then, Mother Nature decided to leave her front door and refrigerator open and her frozen bath water spilleth right over.

My neighborhood ended up with the strangest week I've seen in a while. Bitter cold temperatures not seen in some thirty years happened in Dallas just after Valentine's Day. I guess Mother Nature was upset at not getting a card. We saw one degree below zero on one day. Goodness, before that, we had single digits around here. There was also snow falling for a few of those days, making the area all-white for all week. It rarely gets below 20 here in North Texas, let alone 10.

Well, I saw some encouraging news from the National Weather Service, which may actually be a better source for finding out long-range weather predictions than The Almanac. The NWS is saying that we can expect warmer and drier conditions in Texas and the Southwest this coming winter. To me, that is good news to a point; however, I wouldn't mind it raining now and then. If there is drought or if our lakes are below acceptable levels, then there will be the need for rain. I just don't want snow and ice. Oh, a little snow is okay if I don't have to go to work, but too much snow or any kind of ice is just not going to fly with me. I live in the Sun Belt, not the Frost Belt. Keep all the Arctic blasting in Cleveland where it belongs. Let me have mildness in my winter time while I await the calendar changing to March.

This writer can only hope that this weather prediction will come true once and for all.
