    Cold rain and 34 degrees in the Mid South region. THIS front is only the beginning, we get a 2nd blast on Sunday night followed by nearly a week of lows in the single digits. I thought the South (Mid or Deep) was supposed to be warm.

    In a part of Texas where it is so flat, you can watch a mistreated dog run away for three days!

    Doing my usual job of being a real go getter on cold icy days and taking the wife to work and then going to get her after work.

    Streets in Lubbock are a little icier than the last storm, several idiots had proved they didn't know how to drive on slick streets just like they always do. Not driving to Levelland tonight to watch the grandson play basketball.

    Sitting here in my oversized chair, hot chocolate next to me, looking out the window at the sleet coming down.....looks cold out there.

    I don't think I'll be going to work tomorrow. I'm glad I can work from home just as well as I can from the office.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I still have a pair of strap on Ice creepers my father-in-law had back in the 50's they are steel plates with the corners turned down about 1/2 inch. He used them all the time ice fishing on the Mississippi in La Crosse, WI.

    I also still have a set of good "V" lug tire chains, but the trouble is they are for 16" wheels and won't fit the 18" now on both vehicles. A good set of chains will take you anywhere you want or should go. Why do you think the "Big Rig" drivers all carry chains in ice and snow country?
