It's On!!!! It's Official!!!


Ok, the National Weather Service just got into the act:
The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a Winter Storm Watch... which is in effect from late Thursday night through Friday morning. Sleet changing to freezing rain expected late Thursday night through Friday noon along and west of a line from Sherman... Mesquite... Waco... to Temple. A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.

Gather around the TV sets and prepare for "Winter Blast 2008!!!" Lari Barager, get your booty up here to Wise County pronto. We need some reports and we need them badly.

Stock up on water. Stock up on pinto beans. Make sure you have a blanket, ice scraper, and perhaps some kitty litter in your trunk. Dress warmly - in layers. Make sure you have an ample supply of batteries and flashlights. Don't hit your brakes. Turn into the skid. Good lord, this is gonna be bad.

Please tax the hell out of me so I can do my part to stop global warming. I can't take much more of this. I apologize to all liberal weenies for saying that it's my fault for causing the heating up of the earth. Who do I send the check to?

Evidently you did listen to your mother, Barry, when she was "reminding" you how to be careful in icy weather! LOL!!

arrgghh! teh stupid is eating my brains!

a quick look at the weather.com forecast for Wise County reveals that the lowest high temperature over the next several days is 36.

can someone please explain to me how this can be some catastrophic ice storm if the temperature won't even remain below freezing for an entire 24 hour period?

stupid.

Well, 4:06PM, I have been outside in Texas, standing in the sun, getting rained on a few times. For this situation, just make sure you have plenty of beer and/or kitty litter at all times.

Hey 3:33! Just make out a BIG ONE and send it to PRESIDENT CLINTON!!!! (and make sure it has LOTS of ZEROS on the end, even though it will be as PHONEY as you are)

Put Wal-mart on full alert. No milk, bread will be left, every movie will be gone. This will help the recession on the economy. Seriously though, if it does ice over, please stay inside and don't check the mail or get the paper. A fall and broken hip is not worth the effort, plus I don't want to have to come get you and haul you to the ER.

At my age (54), I've been having so many "Hot Flashes" I thought I was causing Global Warming. And I think Al Gore has been following me the last 3 or 4 days.

I've been having so many "Hot Flashes" lately, I thought perhaps I was causing Global Warming. And I think Al Gore has been following me the last few days.

I really don't think the weather has been the same since Harold Taft died. Has'nt anyone else noticed that??

Eleanor Roosevelt said...

Can someone explain to me what President Taft did to affect the weather ?

Hitlary clit on said...

7:11---- that wasn't Al Gore, It was Bill Clinton. Hot flashes will light a cigar when applied properly to the tip.

And, remind us of what we are supposed to do with all this kitty litter.

I think he said something about keeping a kitty in the trunk. I don't know what for. Sounds kind of kinky. Just be careful.

I've been told the idea with the kitty litter is you have it for the extra weight to get traction, then if you do start spinning you get out and put the litter under the tire. But then that leaves you without anything for traction which makes your tires spin... So I guess you actually put it there to insure at least one quandary for the day.

I'm exactly the same age and empathize with you. When the night sweats break out tonight, it will feel go to step out on the front porch and watch the sleet falling. Can't wait. It will almost feel as good as standing in the kitchen with the freezez door open.

Silicone Alley said...

All this talk about hot flashes is freaking me out. *body shivers*

Dang Silicone! Is that your pic? Your hot!

Finally, a topic with a series of posts that make me smile...let's see who enjoys humor...

"They say if the warming trend continues, by 2015 Hillary Clinton might actually thaw out." --Jay Leno

"President Bush said he just saw a film about global warming, 'Ice Age 2; The Meltdown.' He said, 'It's so much better than that boring Al Gore movie.'"

The hotter it is, the colder beer'll taste.

Or maybe this one, but it requires a lively sense of humor.
