Severe Threat Expands/Poll Closes/New Poll

Severe weather will focus a bulls eye on northeast Texas late Tuesday/early Wednesday. But as the figure at right shows, there are many locations with at least of slight risk of severe storms. Severe storms produce large hail, damaging winds, and/or tornadoes.

Even more moderation of temperatures on Tuesday for much of the country. What has been frigid Maine will make highs in the 20s. There will be highs in the 20s, 30s, and 40s across the north and northeast. And the south and southeast will be in the 60s to the 80s. Look for thunderstorms in Arkansas, Tennessee, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. There will be rain for much of the west and snow in the higher elevations there. There will snow and rain in New Mexico and snow in the northern plains and the western Great Lakes states. There will rain in parts of the northeast including Boston.

Houston will be mostly cloudy and mild with lows in the 60s and highs in the 70s. Storms, some possibly severe will pass through between midnight and 5 am Wednesday morning. Wednesday will be sunny with lows in the upper 50s and highs in the 70s.

Let's do garden or jardín, pronounced har-DEEN. I love working in the jardín. When I lived in the Rio Grande Valley there was a restaurant which made wonderful tacos called Taco Jardín (kind of weird now that I think about it--taco garden--not too appetizing).

Speaking of things to eat, we teach terms for lots of things kids love in our award winning DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco, Check it out at You can also order from,,,,,, and If you are more interested in a full immersion type product, go to

Our poll, about President Obama's performance thus far, has closed. 22% think he has taken all the right steps. 33% think he has done some positive things but needs to do more. 11% thought he is not doing enough. And 33% thought he has made some bad choices. Thanks for responding.

Our new poll is more light hearted--what is your favorite vegetable? Don't like vegetables--well there is a choice for you too. Have fun!

Speaking of vegetables, Sarah and I along with Sarah's friend Gabriella, worked in the garden today. The weather is warming up and I would like to get a round or two of radishes out of my sun exposed garden before it gets too hot. We pulled out the weeds, tilled the soil, and mixed in some new soil. We also picked some more pea pods. Sarah is doing her best to eat them all up, but it has been challenging. I cut back the tomato plants...I think they might come back. It would be so nice not to have to start new ones. Will let you know how it goes.

Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!
