If you live in North Texas - the DFW metroplex, have you looked outside? It's like a Stephen King novel - particularly the "Mist". (Not the movie - the story!) I keep expecting large, ugly, creepy things to come flying out of the fog. Driving in it at 5:30 in the morning - when not many others have ventured out yet - only one word comes to mind - Desolate. Here's hoping the fog burns off, and half-way decent weather returns.
Christmas Shopping - are you done? If you're one of those people who had it finished before Halloween or Thanksgiving - shut up! I'm about half way done & time is running out! I still need to mail out of state packages yet. Meant to do that yesterday but knew I couldn't be shopping today so needed to get that shopping done yesterday. Never had time to get packages sent. Somehow today I have to do it!
And this crazy weather - what can I say!? On Sunday the temp was in the 70s. On Monday the wind and chill were terrible. Not to mention we had icy stuff falling from the sky later in the evening which made the Tuesday morning commute hard for some people. Now most of the roads I had to travel were dry - save for a few bridges but those had been sanded so they weren't too bad. I followed someone driving 20 on a service road where the speed limit at optimum times is 45-50. The road was bone dry. If you are too scared to drive on a dry road - get off of it & stay off until you decide you want to drive at least halfway normally!
And if you want a good laugh - go visit
It is hilarious! My son pointed me to this clip last night!
And if I don't get back to you in the next week - have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
