Single digit above/below zero lows. kids, three days off from school. Loved Alabama yesterday; everyone hit the panic button at noon, massive traffic jams.
That's rich. You guys crack me up.
Alabama was worse today. Mobile was shut down, ice on the roads, and the local 15 News was out in force screaming at people who were driving. I hooked up my old Cali go-to-Big Bear tire treads, and was moving right nice. Was going to Winn-Dixie for milk, butter, eggs, and ice cream and got the corner of Fairhope Ave and 98, when some A-hole newsy starts screaming at me about how I'm going to kill people by being on the road, so I point to my tires and say "those are tire chains and I've driven in these, and worse, conditions almost every year for the last 25". Needless to say, that segment wasn't put on the news. I got my milk, butter, eggs, and some salmon, crawfish, crackers, brocolli, peppers, onions, soy, oyster sauce, yogurt, and a fresh baked, still warm, Tuscan boule. I was the only person in the whole store; now that was a trip. But, I got my stuff and drove home just righty tighty.
They (we) crack me up, too. A $25.00 set of tire treads and all the nonesense stops. Oh well, there ain't no accounting for intelijense. Woof !!
Nous n'avons pas peur! Vive la liberté! Moi aussi je suis Charlie!
Yippy Ki Yay.
