We can always use the moisture. No matter what the form of it is. I would prefer the rain over the snow. That is because here in Amarillo it is hardly ever just snow. We usually have the killer winds to go with it. Oh and more often than not we have the ice as well.
So far we have had a very weird winter. We have had a bit of snow early on. The rest has been hit or miss. Don't let that fool you or even jinx us. We still have a good two months until we hit spring and even that doesn't guarantee we won't have winter here in the Texas Panhandle..
As if this week has not already been one for the books. A book that we all just want to go ahead and return, throw in the garbage, or even burn. I am not a book burner but that is how this week has been.
This has been a crazy week of weather. I mean we had it all. Nice weather over the weekend and then the craziness moved in the Texas Panhandle. We had thundershowers, thundersnow, ice galore, wind and snow.
This year has been challenging for a lot of our non-profits here in Amarillo. The donations have gone down of course. There have been a lot of cancelled events which usually brought them in money and donations too. After already taking this hit it is never good to hear news like this.
We have known for a long time that this election was going to be interesting, to say the least. It definitely has. We have seen temper tantrums, interesting looks being given back and forth, and a fly.
I don't think there was a person here in the Texas Panhandle that was not some how affected by the recent pandemic. Maybe you lost your job and struggled with finances. You or a family member may have had to miss out on a big event, like graduation, prom, a birthday celebration or wedding.
Are you one of those that getting outside just makes you feel so much better? Oh I certainly am. The sunshine on my face. The wind blowing through my hair. Oh even if it is our gusty Texas Panhandle "breeze". You know what I am talking about.
Who couldn't use a break right now with a Dairy Queen Blizzard? It was a great day at the station when our Digital Guru summoned us to a meeting. Usually I am not all that excited about a late afternoon meeting but this one was going to be different. This one was going to include Dairy Queen.
