Well, hello there!
Yup, been awhile since I’ve posted. I’ve been living up to that XKCD comic once again. Trying to catch you up all in one go might be a bit much (or it might not, I’m not sure I’m that interesting), so I’ll just try to throw some tidbits at you as we go along.
One thing I’m particularly tickled over is that little chart to the right. If you view this post on my own site, you’ll see I’ve added a weight-loss tracker to my page. Back in September, Cindy and I both hit a point where we were just…fed-up with our general health and the feeling that almost everything else in our lives seemed to come before that one most simple, precious thing.
Well, hello there! It’s been awhile since we chatted. So, what’s new? Over here, it’s snow.
North Texas has been hit with record snow fall this weekend. More than 12″ in some places, we recorded 11″ on our back porch. This is more snow than has ever fallen in Texas in my lifetime.
I should have made a snowman. Or a snow-dalek. But, instead the missus and I hid indoors and watched the snow fall outside with mugs of hot cocoa in our hands. Oh, and we watched with great interest as the tree in our front yard got lower and lower to the ground. Three major limbs snapped under the weight of the snow – a 20 year old Oak.
Fortunately, that was the only damage we suffered. We also managed not to lose power or Internet the whole weekend, where many in North Texas were not so lucky. The news says over 200,000 homes and businesses were without power, and as of today only 50,000 have had it restored. Yikes! Let’s hope everyone is warm again soon. And that this is the end of the snowfall this year.
