Witch's Tit, Texas

Wish you were here.

Well, no work or school today. As I type you, sleet is steadily tapping down outside. Word on the news, it's Armageddon out there, or Texans on ice, same difference. They've closed I-10 from Sonora to San Antonio.

I tried to get into the office, but got myself in one typical single mom quandry. Do I leave my children here? Because if I wreck out on the roads I do not want them involved. Survival chance much greater if they remain glued to the tv set here.

But then, what if I get to the office and I'm stuck there, and the kids here? Not good. I stayed flustered for just long enough to call the home office and hear that half the state is shut down and do not go out under any circumstances. Sweet.

I love bad weather memories. I have plenty, mostly involving sledding and driving mishaps. Is there any greater celebration of shitty weather than sledding? I think not. Worth every chapped lip, every frostbitten cheek, sledding may be the cure all to life's woes.

And if by chance you're bored today, feel free to q the chou. It's not that I don't want to write more often, it's that I don't have a clue what to write about. Denny has suggested I write about how the dimocrats are going to sink our economy. And while I don't usually do market forecast, I am trying to think of some creative ways to tackle that topic.

OH, and what happened to lurker Bob? Anyone? Is he still checking in anywhere? I haven't seen him since the first of the year. Just wondering. Bob, if you're out there, say hi.

Y'all have a wonderfully, wintery day today. Think of all us lollygaggin' Texans, curled up warm and safe, and smile. Someone in Texas loves you.

We're getting cabin fever already. We can't go anywhere - and what would we do if we could? I pity those poor folks who thought they could drive somewhere and are stranded on the road somewhere.

Have fun spending time with your kiddos today and probably tomorrow, too.

You need a day off. Enjoy it!

Hey Girl!

Haven't heard from Bob in a while. I'll ask Theresa, he was commenting over there quite a bit.

Stay warm and SAFE!

It's colder than an ice cube in a glass.
It's colder than the hair on a polar bear's ass.
It's colder than the nipple on a witch's left tit.
It's colder than a box full of penguin shit.
(Man, it's cold!)

You missed me! Gives me goosebumps. (No wait, it's just a bad thermostat setting.)

A bit buried I am. Sorry.
