We are under a winter weather advisory until 1 PM today. They're predicting a little snow, from a dusting to possibly 2 inches with temps in the upper 30's. Tomorrow temps are supposed to hit the mid 40's (F), and on Wednesday the mid 50's (F). For some reason, I thought I had off tomorrow, well I was wrong. I'm off Wednesday. I can live with those temps on my day off.
The time has come to begin looking for Spring decorations for my Season Tree. That's right, the snowflakes and bears need to be packed away. One thing that will not be hanging from the boughs will be plastic Easter eggs. It's a seasonal tree, not a holiday tree. I might buy some four leaf clovers, not because of St Patty's day because I like green. Besides, St Patty's day is really just a good reason to drink beer and eat corned beef. As for ornaments, there are a lot like this:
My new, little desk is set to arrive tomorrow. Since I'm off Wednesday, that timing couldn't have been better.
And what about those electric bills some people in Texas are getting? Thousands of dollars. I got a hardy chuckle when I saw Republican legislatures from that state were saying the Federal government should help cover the cost. These are the same people who pushed for free market unregulated energy sales. No restrictions. Competition will keep prices low they claimed, an old Conservative chestnut which should have been thrown out years ago. Rather then the Federal Government, I believe those law makers should pay those bills out of their own paychecks. What really happened here is that they shit in their pants and now want someone else to clean up their mess.
Until Texas unfucks itself by voting out the GOP it will always be fucked and in need of a handout.ReplyDelete
I think that day is approaching fast.Delete
"I believe those law makers should pay those bills out of their own paychecks."- GAYmen!ReplyDelete
Of course they won't, too Republican.Delete
Texas supplying their own power because they want to stay away from government regulations is a good idea if they regulate themselves. The didn't. Easter is a useless holiday. If you are religious by all means celebrate it but don't drag a bunny into it for the rest of us.ReplyDelete
The problem with deregulation is that you need a regulation that creates limitations as to how far deregulation goes and no one wants that.Delete
Texas' GQP lawmakers are going to try to excuse their greed and ineptitude in any way, shape or form they can think of. They should all be voted out. But it's Texas, so they'll re-elect Cruz. Ugh.ReplyDelete
Love the idea of a seasonal tree! And those ornaments are pretty!
We're hitting a heat wave. It's 35 degrees today! Yay!
Wow! We hit 35 too!!Delete
I used to have a Seasonal Tree too, enjoyed decorating it Seasonally. As for Texas, weren't they bitching not too long ago about wanting to secede from the Nation... and now they've cocked everything up and shit their pants, they want Government to bail them out, how ironic! This is what they get for their greed, incompetent Leaders they elected and wanting to deregulate and privatize something they never should have. If they'd stayed on the West Coast Grid like El Paso, they wouldn't have had this catastrophe!ReplyDelete
You're right, they did want to secede and mostly because they felt their power grid made them special. Oh... Shit!Delete
