Yes, it got down to 17* according to the internet and my weather widgets I have on the computer. Not only did our pipes freeze, but the electric also was off this morning. Of course we didn’t know this when we were sleeping, so the electric blanket went off and didn’t come back on when the electric did. When the electric did come back on, we were able to listen to the news enough to find out that there will be rolling outages in our area until further notice. It will be this way, the weather, for at least a couple of more days, then a small warm-up, and then cold again. What a disappointment this year has been for weather here in South Texas. It is never really warm at night, usually in the 40’s, but this year is certainly colder.
I made chicken noodle soup the other night, and a big pot of bean soup last night. Nothing tastes better on a cold evening than a big bowl of steaming soup and warm cornbread.
We passed on playing cards last night. I hated doing that, but I guess with all the high winds, the cedar or whatever that pollen is called, was blowing around. I had a splitting headache all day yesterday. I love game nights, so won’t be missing very many.
We did play Sunday night and we had the biggest crowd that I can remember ever showing up. There were 13 of us playing golf, and six playing Joker and pegs. Hopefully we will get to play Mexican train again before we leave.
Right now our plans are to leave the 5th of March. Probably stop and visit with the kids in Louisiana for a day or so, then hit the panhandle of Florida to visit another friend in Pensacola, and maybe on to Carrabelle for a month or so. Nothing in concrete, but that is the plan right now.
Want to welcome my newest follower, Alan McMillan. I couldn’t find a site for you, so if you have one, please contact me with the address and I will add it here. Hope you enjoy the ride along with me and Don.
I did get the laundry all caught up yesterday, and went to the grocery on Monday. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to get out of the grocery for under $100.00. You would think with just two of us it wouldn’t be so much, but it is. Don’s beer also comes out of the grocery, so that is in with it.
Going to make this a short post. The internet keeps going off and on too, so want to get this posted before it goes back off. Later
