Whatcha Gonna Do?

When it is bad out, I cook. I never run out of bacon-ever.

Seems like just last week I was dealing with 110 degree heat and choking clouds of caliche dust.  ‘Just wait’  I said all through that hell that is the High Summer in South Texas.  Just wait until Fall when the days cool and the dust lays down. Just wait until then to get all those piddling projects done that are on the back burner.  So what happened to those perfect Fall days?  Hell if I know!  Rain today, 40 something for the high, been that way all

Surviving the Arctic Blast

Among the reasons I was anxious to return to my recreational vehicle after the holiday break was the upcoming frigid weather.  We are expecting temps  in the low teens the next few nights here just north of Newton,TX.

A frosty January morning in East Texas

Back in the day, I drove an 18 wheeler for many years.  Never was there a more naive country boy, let me tell ya!  One of the things I learned was the difference in the weather up North.  Being from the Southern United States, winter weather was something I had never dealt with previously.   Somewhere around
