If there is one thing we know in Texas, the weather can change on a dime.
So after historic freezing temperatures that led to massive power outages, boiling water notices and busted pipes, we shouldn’t have been all that surprised much of the state looked like nothing had ever happened by Saturday afternoon.
The sun was out, the roads were clear and the temperature was in the 70s in much of Texas.
To be sure, many are still suffering from the after-effects of the calamity and our state leaders, hopefully, will be sorting out what needs to change so we aren’t dealing with this again in the future.
In the meantime, resilient Texans showed off the massive swing in weather in a matter of hours all over the state with memes and images on social media.

On Monday it was -2 degrees in Texas. Today it was 70. If my calculations are accurate, next week it will be 140 degrees. #OnlyinTexas
