I'm near Lockhart and school cancelled (AISD), fire built and planning chili for supper. A large part of the state is affected by the cold and wet conditions.
Going to spend some time online looking at blinds for next bow season, need a tall one for longbow.

I'm in the office, but with the lack of traffic, the roads should be icy in no time. Don't think I will be here too long.

I'm at work here in Victoria. It's not too bad right now although I almost busted my butt stepping on my running boards this morning as they were iced over.

I'll keep an eye on the weather and see how long I'll stay but the wife, kids and dog are all at home nice and warm.

I hit the road at 4:30 this morning to avoid the idiots. We had snow banks as high as 1-2" in one area. I saw a blizzard of snow for about 200 yards. The black ice was awful where the city forgot to turn off their sprinkler system (20 yards long). Once I got through all of that I made it around one driver doing 45 in a 70.

I almost broke out the dog sled. Be careful out there.

We are all at work. Doubt that we close up early or anything like that. Hopefully we don’t get stuck here, because I gotta drive 40 minutes home and that could be a long trip in the ice.

They told us if we didn't feel comfortable driving in don't try it. So I'm laying on the couch watching fishing.

I wasn't too worried about getting to work, it's was the getting back part I was worried about. Don't get me wrong, I like my job but not enough to spend the night there.

Well I am at home but I work from here so I guess it does not count.....We do have ice and snow. School is closed so my youngest is also home. If it counts my wife had to be at work at the post office in Caddo Mills by 5 so we left at about 3:15. It worked out fine but now I will have to go pick her up later....If the roads clear up I can make it in about 45 minutes. Still a long round trip considering I work from home.......

Our fuel dealer called yesterday and asked how much propane we needed, but probably couldn't make it because some folks where 100% out and they were just doing emergency fuel stops, seeing the roads leading to the area I doubt that any delivery is made today

Your best bet on a longbow blind is a Krivoman or similar, or homemade! Pop ups are ok, till you have to bend over a little for the shot and whack the top of the blind with your bow on release!!!!! When that happens on something really nice, it will pizz you off real bad!!!!!
