Icy Austin

Knowing I had a rehearsal dinner in Austin tonight, I came down last night before the I-35 corridor turned into an ice rink. The bridges out of Dallas were frozen, hit heavy snow from Temple to Georgetown, and reached Austin just as the light mist began falling.

The news this morning says this is the most snow since February 14, 2004, a night I remember as perhaps the best snowball fight in modern Southwestern University history.

No snowball fights for me today though. For now, I will enjoy the view and wait for the sun to show up.

Snow day in Dallas

Harper, our fragile little Golden Retriever, is a huge fan of the snow. We discovered this about a year ago, but we're thrilled for another rare opportunity to watch him go completely nuts in the white stuff. We have a pot of black beans with green chile and chorizo on the stove, so we're settled in for a great snow day.
