It’s Super (Bowl) Weather

by Joy Donovan on February 1, 2012

Hey, north Texans, have you ever turned the air conditioning on in February?

I don’t remember ever doing so but today–Feb. 1, 2012–I did just that in my car because it was downright toasty when I got into it mid-afternoon. Sauna-like even. No need to think about a coat.

Let’s rewind to last year. According to the National Weather Service, the high temperature for Feb. 2, 2011 was 20 degrees. February of last year had the fifth highest snow totals in Dallas-Fort Worth ever. It was as if we opened the door to welcome Alaska to take up residence here.

And if you’re remember, we were in the national spotlight because Super Bowl XLV had come to town. Yippee. Our turn to show off all we had to offer…football, friendly people, barbecue, Mexican food, museums and lots of bad weather. Nasty stuff. Icy roads. School closings. Sheets of ice literally slid off Cowboys Stadium’s roof, injuring people.

What  a difference a year makes.
