    Shut in



    We got a good bit of snow last night here in the south. I'm stuck at home to enjoy relaxations and some Guitar Hero.

    Last night when it started coming down hard, me and my father in-law had to go meet someone to pick up my daughters after a movie they went to. People were already stuck in ditches, sliding all over the place, and basically acting like folks who have never been behind a wheel.

    I killed it yesterday. 4x5min V02s and 2x20@95%. Today is a perfect day to recover and enjoy ....

    THE FRIGGEN KIDS running in and out, dragging wet soggy clothes all over the new flooring, the dog taking a dump somewhere in the house because he's too much of a p***y to step in the snow.

    Kidding. It should be a nice day.

    Very true.

    After church yesterday. (Yes! I go to church.) People were already freaking out. Driving, in the rain no less, like there was a glaze of ice on the road. The shopping centers were packed with idiots thinking they had to stock their fall-out shelter. I just needed some rice for our country style steak. Mmmmmm

    The Jeep had 31 inch tires. The snow still didn't stop me from getting out. You need a better excuse.

    You have not lived until you have seen Texans in the snow or ice. We are insanely, hilariously, bad.

    So true. My first year in Texas we had a really bad ice storm. People would asked me, how do you drive on ice up north? My reply, "we don't".

    The local news said our area (parts of Gaston County) were hit the worst. We have sections of I-85 shut down and the back roads are all frozen slush and ice.
