Snowing here in SE Louisiana.
Just wanted you to know. :hat:

If you don't have one of those ice scraper things just let your truck run 5 minutes with the defrost on. The stuff melts right off.
Good idea.
I'll send my wife out to take care of this. Cold weather doesn't bother her as much as it does me. ;-)

Now comes the sloppy mud and refreezing tonite...if we wuz smart, we would have given this a dramatic name and garnered international attention and gotten billions of federal $$$ out of it and go down in history books.
Something catchy like SUPERBlizzard Sindy :roll:

I heard one weatherman say it was the earliest recorded snow in Galveston.
Snow in Galveston is a rarity at that, kind of makes you wonder what January is going to be like.

Hey GB, I don't have TV, but I do have Internet. Some wiseacre did name it "Winter Storm Benji". How be nice cute. Who comes up with this stuff?

Funny story, to me anyway.......
"Never get between a Man and his pecan Pie"
It happened on a cool winters evening; we had received a Christmas gift from a vendor. Shane was watching as I opened the package and removed the 5lb bag of pecans.
It was Shane's idea to send the bag home with Chuck. Shirley is amazing in the kitchen.
That same afternoon I got a call to transport a plane, and Shane is the mechanic most often charged with this.
Shane suggest, in fact he insists, that Shirley wait until he gets back from Harlingen........then she can bake the pecan pie. We all agree to wait until Shane gets back home.
Wednesday afternoon, we texted a photo of the Sara Huckabee Sanders pie to Shane as he was driving to Harlingen. He was be nice. So, we told him it was fake news.
Shane arrived Harlingen late Wednesday, and began work Thursday morning. He sent us pictures of the aircraft disassembled and loaded on the trailer that afternoon.
Thursday evening, Shane sent pictures of snow falling.......at the Serita checkpoint, said he'd slid off the road, and the K-9 unit was there making them disassemble the truck and aircraft.
I didn't believe any of it. I thought he was just exacting revenge, which he did, but I didn't believe the snow job until I looked at the news.
He did get worked over at Serita.
