I declare Snowmageddon ’21 – Vol. II…over

Looking outside today, all I could see were little, isolated patches of snow or ice on the ground (not asphalt or concrete). So the weather element is done, especially with the temperature expected to hit 21° C. I craved junk/fast … Continue reading

At least these two cats are managing

 This brief footage of two local strays/ferals just strolling through the snow in my driveway gave me a sense of relief today. I was never worried about Isis and Aggie’s well-being in the mess but the numerous homeless cats … Continue reading

Agamemnon’s first encounter with snow

 I wanted to see his reaction to this weather since cats vary when it comes to snow. As you watch you’ll realize, he’s my cat alright. Isis was spared this because she spent a good chunk of her earlier … Continue reading

Snowmageddon 2021

A quick sample of how thick, lasting and messy yesterday’s snow “storm” was. Personally, I thought it wasn’t going to happen. Then we had several hours of icy rain to set the conditions for snow. It also stuck because the … Continue reading

These two bums battling the cold weather today

Today isn’t as nasty as the day before but I would still rather sleep in. I caught these two rubbing in it on how they can. A rare moment when the two of them agree to be in the same … Continue reading

Snowpocalypse II of 2018 continued

Well, I got more than my prediction (not a wish, I have stuff to do plus I do like seeing my co-workers)…they closed my work site in its entirety for the first time in a decade, according to my memory. … Continue reading

Hunkering down for Snowpocalypse II of 2018

Central Texas is due for freezing rain and below-zero (Celsius) temperatures for the next couple days. Thus I need to be prepared for Southerners who can’t drive under these conditions and probably toilet paper hoarding. Found out they’re getting their … Continue reading

Central Texas Flood 2015

Huge swaths of the area are assessing the damage and cleaning up. Meanwhile, the GOP-heavy government has taken up yoga to practice the sudden flexibility in accepting Federal assistance to get through this mess. I guess Faux News “scientists” told … Continue reading

Freezapocalypse 2!

Not really. Just the (un)expected overreaction the local governments did again because it was cold with drizzle last night. Never mind the roads being acceptable or better this morning. It would’ve been nice to sleep in a bit but anything to cut … Continue reading

Now it’s the Freezapocalypse!

Central Texan schools, governments and businesses (included my employer) decided to err on the side of overreaction today since last week they didn’t heed the wiser heads. Sure Atlanta got ridiculed on The Daily Show but we made the front page … Continue reading

Snowpocalypse becomes Sleetapocalypse

The charmed-life theory proved itself again today for me. At first it didn’t because the bad-weather line for work said, “all is normal, come to work.” I thought, they’ve got to be kidding!? I wasted probably a couple liters of gas … Continue reading

Fall is finally here

With the temperatures in the mid to high 80s (low 30s in C) during the day and then dipping to the 60s (teens in C) in the evening, Fall has arrived in Central Texas. So has the fatigue that I … Continue reading
