Amarillo Al the Armadillo


SPRING OFFICIALLY STARTS TOMORROW, BUT, IN TEXAS, it started on the evening of February 2 when Amarillo Al the armadillo walked out onto the highway.

On the East Coast they have Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog who saw his shadow on February 2nd, then went back into his hole, forecasting 6 more weeks of winter weather.

Texas tradition says that if Amarillo Al makes it across the road, winter continues; if he gets hit by a car, winter ends.

That’s why there is never a winter in Texas.
