Every January we have a couple of cold snaps. One occurred over the weekend and is still going on. Northerners like to poke fun at how we Texans freak out over a little freezing rain (and God only knows what would happen if it actually snowed down here). It’s true – it’s just so far out of our normal experience that we don’t know how to handle it.

Of course, Burning Crusade goes on sale at midnight tonight. Not having had the chance to preorder it, I’ll be heading down to my local Wal-Mart around 11 pm tonight, no matter how frozen the roads are. I’m hoping to get supremely lucky and snag at least one Collector’s Edition, but even if I don’t manage that, I’m really looking forward to finally making my Draenei Shaman. And then typing /flirt and /silly over and over again for an hour.

Oh, and sorry…nothing is going to get done on Planitia until my Burning Crusade curiosity is satisfied.
