It doesn't take much to shut down a major city and the surrounding suburbs in Texas. We woke up to iced over roads and a dusting of snow. I'm excited to have the day off but not looking forward to making it up on a nice, sunny day. It is getting me excited about going to Alaska though. I've been trying out some of my layering techniques to get ready for the cold. The deer and the birds are all wanting to be fed today because they are cold and they know if they hang around our house, they'll get fed. My cat however, spent a total of 5 seconds on the back porch before she was snuggled with me on the couch again.
