CABIN FEVER: It has officially set in y'all. If this turns out to be like the winter of 2010 I might lose my mind. Winter 2010 we expected an ice day that turned into like a week. Here in Texas, especially North Texas we are not equipped for these things. In 2010 everything was shut down for like a week. We were all banned to our houses and what made it worse was no one was prepared. I remember sittin' on the pot and realizin' we were out of toilet paper among other things.
It hasn't even been 24 hours of this nonsense and I'm already stir crazy. I should count my blessin' cause I have power and heat. I hear over 300,00 people are without it. A good much of my town is without power and they all have fallen trees in their yard. We got notta thing but lots of ice near our ice. The longhorn field in front of my house, pic two, has quite a few trees down. I talked to Bestfran Numero Uno and she has no heat and power. Not only is she going crazy but she is so cold. Y'all we might not even get above freezin' by Monday. I told her if she felt brave enough to drive tomorrow come out and we will keep her warm with lots of gumbo. My house is closer than her Momma's.
Seriously, y'all, just Google pics and video and you will see this nonsense. Whole highways are shutdown. We don't play. Highway 35 headed out to the Texas- Oklahoma has been shutdown for the night and I saw via a Facebook post that they are sending out the National Guard to rescue stuck people along a 12 mile backup. Why are people out in this. AHH, get to your houses and stay. But I am tried of the news interrupting everything and yellin' at me to stay in my house. Clearly I can see this. And the ones who can't see it are either out in it or don't have power.
Y'all stay safe and warm. Also, don't forget about the 12 days of Christmas link-up starting Monday. If you live in Texas you have no excuse cause your trapped in like me. Start writin' them now.
