Texas? A Winter Wonderland?

Once in a great while, Texas reminds us that we’re not quite far enough south to leave the plants out all the time. Right now we’re under a winter weather advisory, since the temperature dropped to 26 degrees last night while it rained vigorously for hours. We lost power for a while during the night, and found the roads ice-coated this morning. The kids have been romping around outside, enjoying the novelty of seeing daddy’s car encased in a crystalline tomb which I’m happy not to chop through in favor of a work-at-home day. Of course, the network at the office is currently down, and since the building sits on top of a hill, I don’t anticipate it getting fixed anytime really soon. I’ll just sit and nurse my hot Earl Grey and see what transpires.
