Two days ago, it was 75-degrees and sunny. That night, it dropped to 38. And last night? Ice! Out of the hundreds of cities which make up the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, our little town made the news last night as the hardest hit location. My father called to warn me. Then, this morning:
Anna Independent School District has issued a 2-hour delay in opening due to weather.
No worries. I send an email to work detailing that I might not be in today and drink another cup of coffee. What with the roads being too treacherous to traverse and all. Two hours later, however, they canceled school! My wife's boss called her and told her not to come in (she has a much longer commute than I do) and I considered spending all day at home with two kids. That shifted my paradigm considerably, and I decided the roads couldn't be that bad, could they?
15 minutes to drive the .8 miles to the highway, and another 15 minutes further to work.
Life is good.
In the place of a Dark Lord you would have a Queen!
Not dark but beautiful and terrible as the Morn!
Treacherous as the Seas!
Stronger than the foundations of the Earth!
All shall love me and despair!
