Welcome to Arkansas…

You’ve all seen the meme…

Welcome to Arkansas, where the weather is made up and the seasons don’t matter.

If you’re not from here, you wouldn’t understand.

For example, today I sacrificed sweating walking to my classroom to be warmer when school ends because its going to drop about 30 degrees.

No I’m not lying.

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day last year, there was a Artic-Polar-Bear-Winter-Ice-Elsa complex going on. It was 6 degrees that week, it cracked my windshield, and we had about 6 inches of snow/ice. We missed school for days, and finally went back that Friday.

This year. I was wearing shorts.

Now the past 3 days {IN FEBRUARY} I have gone home and put on Nike shorts and my house shoe boots with the air on 70 every night.

Today we started out at 65 degrees.

By tonight it will be in the 30s, it is going to pour rain throughout the day, and we’ll have to flip the heat on & get out the fuzzy socks.

It might also call for tomato soup and crackers.

BUT I am prepared with my cute ‘muddy puddle boots’ as Peppa would say….

Exhibit A.

And we wonder why we all stay snotty & coughing & congested.

Why our joints and such ache—well the weather changes all. the. time.

This. is. real.

Welcome to South Arkansas.
