Change in Christmas Forecast/Surprises at Garden Ridge Pottery

Most of the western U.S. is under winter weather advisories/watches/warnings. And it is snowing over much of the southwest (especially the higher elevations). Meanwhile flooding remains a concern in southern California and Nevada. Winter weather advisories/watches/warnings are also in effect from Oklahoma through the Midwest and New England.

Thursday highs will be in the single digits for the northern plains and northern Rockies while the northeast will not get out of the 20s. The south will be much more mild (70s and 80s for highs) south and southeast.

A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for the Houston area and coastal counties until 9 am Thursday. A warm front will move through the area overnight bringing some balmy conditions for the end of the week. Next cold front arrives late Saturday. Sunday will be cool (in the 50s). Monday will also be chilly.

HERE'S THE BIG NEWS FOR HOUSTON! Temperatures will warm on Wednesday but it looks like a secondary shot of cool air will arrive in time for Christmas Day. Christmas morning will be in the 30s.

Let's do dense or denso, pronounced DEHN-sew. Yesterday we had niebla for fog. So tonight we have niebla densa.

Went into Garden Ridge Pottery for a few last minute Christmas items. First of all, there was lots of stuff 50 and 75% off. But what struck me the most was the spring floral arrangements as I walked into the store. I had to do a double take to remember what time of year it is. And, there wasn't a ton of Christmas stuff left. I asked the cashier if anyone was actually buying the spring stuff and she said, oh yes, we have had quite a few sales. Wow! I am just so not in that mindset right now. You can get some terrific Christmas deals (for this year or next)!

Have a terrific Thursday and safe travels everyone!
