The end is near! If you're not frozen yet, it's just a matter of time. Prepare to meet your Maker. Just as a broken clock is still right twice a day, our North Texas weatherguessers [finally] got one right. Kudos to Pete Delkus & team. They're 1 for 340. WooHoo!
That seems to be the consensus opinion coming from Storm Team 8. Prepare to bust a gut laughing all you Yankees....we've had 3-4 inches of sleet and our city of 6.5M people is paralyzed. Our light rail transit system is down, all schools are closed, and most businesses, too. (K is home working from her laptop.)
Even Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Foat Wuth is closed. (Don't get any crazy ideas North Korea. We all have guns, and we know how to use them!) DFW International is a ghost town, too. They're just not prepared to deal with this kind of weather.
Luke the Wonder Dog has shut down, too. I took him out at 0-dark-thirty and he couldn't deal with it. He gets all ready, lifts one leg, and his other 3 just splay....dog down! Dog down!
Me? I'm excited! I'm probably one of only a handful of north Texans who are enjoying this. I finally get to wear my super-heavyweight winter coat (what was I thinking?) and all my other cold weather clothing. too. In fact, if I wasn't the mature adult that I am [sic] I'd probably drive up to the mall just a few blocks away and check the grip of my tires. *wink*
For now I'm just keeping a lookout to see if any of the other kids come out to play. Join me?
