I find that when you can’t overcome or prevent something, it’s best to just give yourself over to it fully. We woke up this morning to snow that was just beginning to fall. Over three hours, we accumulated about seven inches and it’s still falling. The gnomes were not impressed. Neither was the dog. At first the kid was less than thrilled.

I’m from Texas. Part of my heart will always belong to the Lone Star State. But I have a confession. I’ve been having an affair with Kansas City, and it might be getting serious. I’ve written before of my love/hate relationship with the place I’ve called home for going on four years. There’s plenty to do, but the weather aggravates me. The Kansas Prairie has given me a best friend whom I love like a […]
