We got around 8 inches here, my work closed down Saturday, then it rained and now we're back to no snow on the roads. I didn't even get to miss a day of work for it.

Twice now I have been duped into reading unsolicited replies about the cooks of Valentines Day steaks, this day off is bullshit

Happy for my good friend Gonzo, however!

Definitely thought you were back in McAllen. Not sure if Iíd expect a bigger or smaller shit show there.

I don't know how you guys live in this every year, but I suppose you just have the necessary gear/infrastructure

I just want to stay in bed all day

Lost power for 7 hours and it dropped into the 50s in the apt and somehow one of the lucky people in the state. What a shit show.

Without power for 15 hrs and counting. Forecast says 0 degrees overnight. Have a dying dog with me sleeping in the bathroom. Girlfriend is stuck out of town and we're breaking up. Our lease ends Sunday and I need to find a new place.

I'm woe

The Topo Chico that I keep in the garage flash froze when I opened it this evening and I had to wait 30 minutes or so for it to thaw enough to drink. So to the folks losing power and stuff, just know you aren't the only ones suffering.

My tastes have kind of changed to the point where sodas taste too sugary, so the flavored bubble waters hit the spot. I don't know if Topo Chico is really better than the others that cost a lot less so we usually don't get it, but my sister in law got me a case as a thank you for letting her borrow my truck.

I am thankful for living in a large building and on the 5th floor. Don't have to worry about being snowed in or cleaning up snow. Chicago has supposedly received over 3 ft of snow in the last month, our balcony has over a foot of snow on it.

Good luck to all you texans without power.

Welp. No water. Time to put van skills to work until I can get a plumber in. Fucking corroded meter casing cracked and it's impossible to google a diy because of garbage results regarding the water main. Even a -main returns water main results.

During my walk in -2 air temp (-10 windchill) yesterday I was laughing about the chaos in Texas until I thought about this point. Just even insulation around pipes and shit or having hot water heaters indoors. I do feel bad for all y'all without power and no real means to keep warm (because you wouldn't normally need it).

I do enjoy this though:

I'm an emotional wreck trying to keep it together. Still without power, and now no hot water either.

Thanks for the kind words. I really needed it.
