We Got 'Em
We got three or four snowflakes this morning or maybe it was fine sleet. Maybe we were just dreaming and wishing. We got a call from the renters at the farm house that they are cold so we went out to take them an electric heater to add to the one they already have. On the way home I could hear tiny pellets hitting the metal truck. The turtles are having to fend for them selves as it is too muddy to drive on the tank dam and I can't get out in the weather to walk down there as I'm on medication for cough and cold. They survived before I knew them and for all I know they are hibernating at least while it is cold. We watched the news from San Antonio at noon. The ctiy is excited about the weather. You people from the north would get a kick out of it all. The city is ready to shut down. People are calling in asking questions. Trucks are already spraying de-icer. I'm not even familiar with that word. Two schools east of us closed at noon. Guess we gotta do with what we get and pretend we get winter just like you do in the north because it may be hot day after tomorrow.
