Icy Morning

It’s an icy morning out there in Justin, Texas. After rain during most of yesterday, a sleet storm last night, and temperatures in the low 20’s, it looks like a better day for ice skating than driving to work. Fortunately, it’s the MLK holiday and many will not be required to get on the roads. My anticipated 270-mile commute to Houston will get delayed another day at least.

With the lack of cars, it looks like another great day for a bike ride (with studded tires).

A Cold Walk


We took the Dachshunds for a short walk today. It was cold, windy, and drizzly. After a short time, they were looking forward to the comforts of home. I am learning that, even in less than ideal conditions, it is worth the effort to get outdoors. But judging from their lack of eagerness, I’m not sure everyone agreed with me.
