Yea, that Texas ice is a real mess!!! I don't even bother trying to drive in it anymore... just much to risky.
Hey, just a tip to offer you... a friend of mine use to do some sort of work in hotels and places of the like. He said to NEVER sleep on top of the covers. Always pull off the comforter and sleep on the sheets. You would not believe the crud they find on those things!!!
Angie, I see some clouds rolling in my neck of the woods.... wonder if we are gonna get our first icing of the year????
