Shit it's cold!



The only thing I fear and dread at the same level as statistical analysis is cold, nasty weather. That, my friends, is why I have remained in Texas my entire adult life. It just doesn't get very cold very often, but when it does, look out. We've had ice storms for the last couple of days that are finally beginning to move out, but fuuuuuuuck it's cold. At least I don't have to go anywhere today & we're all stocked up with firewood, groceries & satellite & internet access. The picture is of the view from my patio, facing south. You can see the trailing edge of the storms. Fortunately, the nastiness won't last long and in a few short months we'll all be lounging poolside and the only thing frozen around here will be the margaritas. Somebody hand me another blanket...

We only got the edge of the ice storm, but we got the cold. And I hate it. My body was not made to endure temperatures lower than 60 degrees. Tonight the low is going to be some ridiculous number like 9. I'm doing my best to survive.

Well honey, when we thaw out and get the pool back up & running you'll have to come visit. I've heard the margaritas around here are world class.
