So, it looks like Austin’s about to see a heckuva ice storm. Yea for having a gas stove for once. And a fireplace. Shoot, it’ll probably be nothing, and I’ll have bought the bread, pop tarts, cereal, and extra cans of veggies and tuna for nothing.
My sister and nephew flew in for a short visit – they got here today and are leaving Tuesday afternoon, if I can ice-skate them over to the airport to get them back on a plane! (That was a really bad run-on, wasn’t it? Oh, well, I’m too tired to fix right now. My apologies.)
