Winter Season: Let’s replace it with another Texas summer

Texas has two seasons: summer and winter. Usually, they alternate days in the same week.

It can be hot, it’s cold, it’s dry, it’s wet, it’s windy. You just gotta love our Texas weather.

I am quite sure that local Texas weathermen can get frustrated with good ol’, Texas weather. It can be unpredictable, and I am sure many have cussed out a weatherman because he said it was going to rain. Therefore, many cancel their trip to the Island for a family beach day. It’s not the weatherman. It’s Texas weather. It just is what it is.

As a matter of fact, as I am sitting here, putting this together, I just got off the phone with my Dad who lives in McAllen. He asked if it was raining here on the Island. It is pouring in McAllen.

“Nope, not here Dad.” I replied.

“Hmmm, maybe I need to move to the Island.”

For your entertainment, imagine if you will, a Texas weatherman who does get frustrated and loses it on camera.

As the saying goes: If you don’t like the Texas weather, wait a minute and it will change.


TEXAS WEATHERMAN: “Good evening, everyone. It is officially fall time in Texas. Hope y’all are having a great day. Let’s take a quick look at our weather for Texas today.

It looks like it is gonna be a very cool 50 degrees here in Texas today, so break out those hoodies and jackets. You just may have to turn up the heat as the chilly fall weather begins here in Texas.”

He puts his finger to his ear microphone receiving a message from the TV station control room. He quickly glances to the right.

Looks back to the camera smiles and says, “Oops. Sorry, folks. I just got a message from the control room here, and I have been informed now that it looks like instead it’s going to be a balmy 90 degrees today. So, you’re okay to leave that T-shirt on.”

He continues with a smile and announces: “90% chance of rain today and–”

Again, he puts his finger to his ear microphone, getting another message from the control room.

He smiles again into the camera. “Sorry again, folks. I just received a message from the control room. There is a 40% chance of rain today. Get the umbrellas and–”

The Texas weatherman once again puts his finger to his ear for another message from the control room.

He looks to the right and asks, “What? How?”

Immediately, he turns back to the camera and with a frustrated voice and a slight smile he says, “There’s a 20% chance of rain today. You can expect a–”

Again, he puts to his ear.

Turning to his right, he raises both hands and starts to shout.

“It has been only 20 seconds, and this is what you are telling me? Seriously?”

Now frustrated and with a very irritated voice and no smile, he looks sternly into the camera and shouts.

“It’s NOT gonna rain today! There might be a tornado with a possibility of–”

He stops, and bleeps cover his cuss words.

“Just a minute, folks.”

The Texas weatherman walks off the camera to the right.

A few seconds later, he comes back on set looking extremely upset, stares at the camera and in a loud demanding voice he says, “Here is your Texas forecast for today. It’s gonna be between 50 and 90 degrees. There may be a tsunami or it may not rain at all. We really don’t know.”

He turns to the right again and asks the control room, “Why am I even employed? What is my job title? None of this is true! We never know what’s gonna happen. It can be pouring cats and dogs in McAllen, but South Padre Island is sunny and breezy! The weather in Texas changes every 5 seconds!”

He mumbles, and then a commercial appears.
