A Snowy Day!
My grandma wasn't superstitious or anything, but whenever something way out of the ordinary would happen, she'd always say: "There's gonna be a blizzard."
Well, today in Austin, it snowed. Wasn't quite a blizzard, but it was enough that it literally shut down the entire city and moved the governor's inauguration off the capitol steps and into Texas House of Representatives chamber. That's a big deal; it doesn't rain much in Texas, much less snow.
But the even bigger news is that my boss at my full-time gig called and told me not to come in. Too dangerous. Keep in mind, I work at a newspaper. Yes, grandma, there's gonna be a blizzard.
