Snow Flurries? No, 2” of Snow Instead . . .

When I went to bed this morning about 1pm, I looked outside and it was not snowing. But a few minutes after 7 when Jan got up, I heard her squealing.

Getting up and looking out, it was, to quote Landon, ‘a winter wonderland’.

Snow in Park

Snow on Tree

Snow on Truck


That’s 2” on the ruler.

In case you’re wondering, that snow in my rain gauge melted out to .25” of rain.

Although the ground was covered in snow, the roads were clear and not slick at all, so I had no problem getting to work.

It never got out of the 30’s today, with high 20’s tonight. But tomorrow we’re looking for low 60’s  That’s Texas weather,what can I say.

I spent most of the day repairing epilator cords. Going through some old cabinets I  found a box of cords of all different types, many with no or broken connectors. When I ask my client about them he said no one had been able to repair them.

Don’t know who had worked on them before, but by the time I left a little before 4pm, I had 17 of them repaired. And most of them only needed to be resoldered, so I don’t know what the problem was. The other few did need new connectors made, which I did out of old ballpoint pen tubes and heat shrink tubing. They looked almost new.

I’ve still got about a dozen more to go that I should finish up on Monday. Unless another crisis rears its head.

Getting home about 4:45, Jan and I headed right back out and up I-45 to the Chuy’s Mexican Restaurant up in Webster. And yes, we had Mexican just last night.. What’s your point?

We pretty much go to Chuy’s for their Mexi-Cobb Salad along with their Creamy Jalapeno Dressing.

But I also started out with a small bowl of their Chicken Tortilla Soup. Very good, and filled with chicken and white cheese.

Then for dessert we shared a piece of their Tres Leches cake, but we were so full that we had to bring h half of it home.

We’ve got a busy social schedule for the weekend, with lunch tomorrow with old friends, Bob and Maria, followed up with dinner on Sunday with another old friend down in Galveston at the Old Mexican Café.

Really looking forward to both get-togethers.

Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.
