It snowed this AM

I barely made it to work. Glad I had my tire chains.

And they didn't call it a snow day? The kids had to trudge through that stuff??

And those are some HUGEASS door lock buttons. Even someone from two blocks away would be able to catch your code.

Good old Ford lock buttons. Grandpa's Lincolns and Mercurys all had them. There may still be a dark green metallic '95 Grand Marquis running around with the code 54059.

Hope you got your milk and bread last night. In ATL, that's enough to cause a major run on those items at the store.

Even a slight dusting of snow can be slippery/hazardous for a Texican wearing a pair of those smooth bottom cow chip kicking boots.
Travel the open range carefully my friend.

It's snowing in Little Rock now. I looked at the weather forecast this morning. Snow was definitely not on it.

Stock up on perishables, as many as you can fit in your SUV, the one with the tire chains on it. It was so cold here today that my windshield washer squirter would not squirt on the passenger side, so I had to drive the kids to school with frost on that side of the windshield. We made it, but just barely.
