After work today, I struck out for a walk in a random neighborhood nearby my restaurant of choice for dinner. There were a few beautiful sights to behold.
This is the best we can do in Central Texas. We watch your photos from the North East Coast (and other cold weather places) in awe of the piles of snow. We travel to places like Colorado just to ski, snowboard, and play in the snow. Here it is 32 degrees Fahrenheit in the morning and 71 degrees Fahrenheit in the afternoon. If you hurry out to your car in the morning, before it warms up, you can get a glimpse of frost on the windshield and dream of the last time you caught snowflakes on your tongue.
The days in Round Rock have gotten so hot that even the neighborhood kids are staying inside instead of swimming. At around 4:00 pm today, I headed for the pool. I looked both ways, crossed the street, and trekked across this awesome manhole cover from East Jordan Iron Works – “the world leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of manhole covers,” among other things. Pretty impressive, huh?
