In case you live nowhere in Texas, or have been on another planet for the last week, IT WAS COLD! And for the record, I don’t do cold! Ok, let me rephrase that: I will do cold but only when it involves trips to the mountain to snow ski (and I can come home after about a week).
Warmer temperatures over the weekend and continuing this week melted most of the snow from the state’s roadways and roofs. But Texans are still dealing with broken pipes that flooded homes and businesses, damaged municipal water systems, and continued power outages in scattered areas, mainly in East and Central Texas.
I like to say I much prefer winter over summer; sweaters and corduroys instead of shorts and Hawaiian shirts; jackets and mukluks in place of T-shirts and sandals. I usually say this at least once a year, typically in the middle of a long, sweltering summer because, “You know, you can always put on more clothing, but there’s only so much you can take off.”
Ever notice how that hoe or shovel worked much better when brand new? Now, using either one gets into some real work! The reason is simple. They’ve lost their “edge” and instead of slicing through whatever, they are forced to slog through!
o, I am guessing that you all have heard the interesting story of the lady who was left looking for an alternative after she ran out of hairspray. Apparently, the woman, a Louisiana native, decided that Gorilla Glue spray adhesive would be a suitable alternative.
