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,

Are You Dreaming Of A Tan Christmas? 70 Expected In Dallas Saturday

Posted 12-19-2021 at 12:55 PM by case44


This coming Christmas in North Texas won't look a lot different than many recent Christmases. That's largely because every year is a different year, and it seems we more often get to a spring-like pattern when Santa brings his sleigh in for his Yuletide run.

Oh, sure, I remember a Christmas Eve where it did snow a number of years ago, but on average, I tend to think of Christmas as a tease for upcoming spring events. Yep, only in Texas (and maybe Florida ) can you see people in shorts out walking or riding bikes. Will it be possible for me to see boats out on Lewisville Lake this coming Saturday? Don't doubt me on it. The forecasted high (at this writing) is expected to be around 70 on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Dashing through the sun?? Hey, at least, I won't complain here. It's expected to be a warmer winter, with drier conditions than we experienced last year. Forget the cold temps now; Rudolph is going to have to find a way not to break a sweat come Friday night.

Look at it this way: If suntan lotion or sunblock are among the things found in your stocking on Christmas morn, then it only means that you're either a true Texan at heart or Santa's elves have a raucous sense of humor.
