Finger snapping, leg slapping, foot tapping Texan girl who works with numbers. I like blank pages, the written word and horses. This is my attempt to amuse you via books, food, travel and the assorted spice rack of life.
The blog gods must be reading my entries because right after I gloated to everyone about how glorious the weather was in Houston, we had the most extreme weather on Monday. This morning, I woke up to a pale green sky and, being a tornado-alley born girl, I knew exactly what that foretold. Over the next few hours, Houston took a pounding of tornadoes, hail, severe thunderstorms and flash floods. I was stuck in traffic for over five hours trying to drop my car off to be serviced. At times, it's okay to have a conservative and safe personality and today it totally paid off. I saw more cars than I can count think they could drive through the high water and have to get towed out because the owners flooded their engines. I may have sat idle in the middle of the road for over two hours but at least I didn't have to "float" down the middle of the street and chalk up my vehicle as totaled. I also asked myself around 20 times why I don't own a truck - must remember for future vehicle purchases. While taking some back roads to get back to work, I saw blocks of houses under water as well. I hope everyone in the blogosphere is safe, warm and DRY. Happy Monday folks!
