It was kind of fun to wake up to snow this morning. The weather has been cold all week. The weathermen were predicting snow last night but you never really believe it until you see it coming down!
My northern friends would think this snowfall insignificant compared to the many inches, feet actually, they have gotten this winter... but here in Austin we have ice storms with no sand, salt or snowplow infrastructure so that makes for very dangerous driving. We are such a green city that we can't even use chemical de-icers on the roads due to environmental concerns! Austin isn't designed for any of this. The city pretty much closed down.
Nicky hated it! He's not a young pup anymore so he showed no interest. He's an old dog and wants nothing to do with anything except his own warmth and comfort!!
When I visited Edd in the hospital I drove the big clunky Tahoe with 200,000 miles on it! I felt pretty safe but still took it slow over some of the roads that looked a little slick.
Now... it's nice to be home on a cold night but wish Edd could be here too. He was feeling better today and hopefully that infection will now be under control and never come back.
It was a good day.
There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. ~Jane Austen
