With that said, Hell froze over yesterday. With some parts of Houston racking up to four inches of snow and two of it's major bridges closed during the commuting hours this morning because they were iced-over-impassable. Local network news on one station refused to pass the mantle to the national morning talk shows so that they could keep everyone in the viewing area up to the minute (less commercials) with the latest weather conditions.
We went outside here at our own little prairie-trailer last night to find it snowing hard enough to dust the tops of garbage cans, some wood we have out back on saw-horses, and even enough to cover the hideous orange of my brother-in-law's broken-down-van that somehow managed to get parked in what is now my backyard, long before it was ever my backyard, and lessened the eyesore that it is. That is a bit of nature magic right there!
The snow quietly falling was quite a pretty site once hubby was safe at home and the new heater was plugged in and cranking out some warmth~without the aid of my oven being turned up to 400 degrees and leaving the door open since the old heater went out at 11-something the night before... which was just late enough to be too late to drive the 30 miles to Wal-mart and get another one. (we had another heater for the baby's room, it was just our bedroom that was colder-n-a-witch's-tit-in-a-brass-bra! Back off CPS vultures!)
Anyway, with the interior cold snap over, I can now concentrate on some of the great things coming my way! For starters, I'll be a size ten by New Year's Day. Oprah is on her way to call me right now, and she's even gonna put me on her speed-dial just cause I make her laugh... Oh, yeah, and the Mega Million Jackpot for Friday night... THE UBER-HUGE One Worth 207 Million Dollars...It's ours; single-ticket-winner guaranteed.
...I mean, since Hell froze over and all...
