Just a little windy

Filed under: Texas Life — by InterstellarLass @ 10:29 am

It’s another day of the Texas Winter Rollercoaster. I’d like for our weather charts to be a nice straight line, hovering somewhere around 45-50 degrees. Instead, we get the 75-45 up and down roller coaster weather charts.

Today we’re having 50 mph wind guts, and steady winds of 20+ mph. We lost part of a tree here at work. I’m worried about my tree at home now.

I looked out side this morning, and all the leaves had blown out of my yard…and onto my patio. A good task for Zed to make an attempt to get all those leaves in a bag, don’t you think?

Last night I voted as many times as possible for Emmit Smith on Dancing with the Stars. I have to admit we’ve kinda been watching, and when Joey ‘Whoa!’ Lawrence got voted off last week, I had to throw my support to Mr. Smith. He was a good Cowboy back in the day, so I had to vote for him. Granted, Mr. A.C. Slater has those dimples, and his ass was good viewing on Nip/Tuck earlier this season, but I gotta vote local.

Does anyone remember back in 1998 when Herschel Walker made headlines by dancing with the Fort Worth Ballet? I think more men should dance.

Update: And just in case you didn’t get that it was windy, here’s a weather report for you. (It’s an audio file)



  1. It sounds like you need to hold on to your hat!

  2. I definitely think more men should dance. It’s becoming a lost art. Perhaps it’s making a comeback now, though, with all these dancing shows.

  3. I don’t dance so much as look like I’m being electrocuted. But Walker (and Smith), they do all right.

  4. Seriously? I think A.C. is a better dancer (and his girlfriend is pretty hot too.)

    “Joey ‘Whoa!’ Lawrence”
    Nice reference!! Nell would be proud of ya’

  5. I’ve always liked Emmit Smith, he’s a Gator and the paper always had so many good stories about him when he lived here.
    I haven’t watched the show religiously but I have seen the last few episodes. Emmit Smith last night was amazing, but I couldnt take my eyes off his partner, she can DANCE. wow. Together, they had complete symbiosis.

    The TV news here has been talking about the weather in Dallas. Hope it doesn’t knock your power out, or cause any other damage to your neighborhood. stay safe!
