It’s always strange to wake up and come outside and see one’s car frozen over in Texas, because just about a month ago the heat was unbearable.

What’s really strange is to leave work and come outside and see one’s car frozen over. Yesterday morning was cold but not freezing. Around noon the temperature dropped and we started getting freezing rain. I had to scrape my windshield before I drove home, which was a new experience.

While the freezing rain has abated, the temperature hasn’t risen, so the roads are frozen over this morning. I’ve no doubt that any Minnesotans reading will laugh, but we Texans get skittish during cold weather…something about slick roads and lots of big, heavy trucks just makes us not want to drive.

So no school and no work! Hopefully I will get to work on the RPG today.
