Ice, ice, baby; too cold, too cold…

Good morning! I am awaiting word from my colleagues/boss whether to drive into work: 27 mile commute through some icey, sure to be scary conditions. The temperature as I write this is 19degrees outside ! I can’t help but think that we Texans ‘freak out’ over temperatures like this. I do believe, and justifiably so: it’s because people don’t know how to drive in conditions like these. I am included in that mix. The mid size truck I have surely is invulnerable to cold…right? no? Oh wait, that’s only Hummers. Oh, I get it.  I think about our northern neighbors on the east coast who sit back and laugh at our cold weather coping mechanisms. But then again, I did snicker few summers ago when New Yorkers couldn’t handle the few days streak of  95 plus degree temperatures. I remember on the evening news the ‘five steps to keeping safe in the heat.’

Okay, time to check in with the boss…gotta be there by 10 a.m.
