April in Texas

I feel like it's tradition for me to do a blog post in early to mid April every year complaining about the weather, usually about the first unseasonably warm morning, but either way, something about crazy Texas weather.

Last year, I posted about the multiple tornado touchdowns that occurred while I was at work on April 3, 2012. 

In 2011, I posted (complained) that it was over 70 degrees at 5 a.m. on April 8, 2011. 

Well, yesterday, April 9, 2013, here is what we had at 4:45 a.m.: 

Since most people who see this don't live in Dallas, basically I live very close to downtown Dallas.  It's indicated on the center-right of the map as "LOVE" (Dallas's airport is named Love Field).  And yes, at 4:42 a.m. yesterday, it was 70 degrees. 
I ran with my friends (we had 800 meter repeats at the track, dreadful, but my times were steady and solid, I just felt like death).  Then I had breakfast and all, and then ran to work.  Showered, worked a full day, and then put on my clothes to walk on the treadmill with a co-worker and then run home -- and my clothes were still somewhat wet from the morning.  Disgusting!  I am not supposed to be sweating that much in early April.
But apparently, at least every other year, I am.  Well, if my choices are sweat in early April or snow on more than a freak occasion, I'll choose sweat.  


  1. I'll take 70 over the 30's we've been having lately! I bet you had some humidity too though?Although this week it finally warmed up here!

    That is quite the active day you had yesterday! Amazing!

    1. Fortunately the humidity wasn't bad. I think 58% it said.
