Death from above

Well, I'm home now. Not getting paid. Because they sent us all home at 2PM, due to the horrific 31-degrees-and-slightly-wet weather conditions. And we may not work tomorrow! Because of this, as the paper put it, "ARCTIC BLAST" of deadly climatological conditions that has apparently thrown all of south Texas into a tizzy. All of downtown is still as silent as a tomb and we may be entering a second day of (non-paid) shutdown, thanks to weather so mild that I can barely describe it. Seriously, I have walked to work in worse weather than this, dozens of times. Even if it doesn't get this bad in SA often enough to justify the cost of salt trucks, how much does it cost to shut the whole goddamn city down for two days because of a quarter-inch of ice? Sheesh.

Next time I hear some rap about the rugged individualist frontier tough-guy mentality of Texas, I am going to laugh a curt, dry, cruel little bark of a laugh.
