One of my routines upon getting up in the morning is to check the local weather to get an idea of how to dress, working outside as a mobile locksmith makes it important. Yesterday there was talk about a slim possibility of snow or freezing precipitation; but a strong emphasis that in all likelihood it would not make the Houston area, staying well to the north and west.
This morning's forecast has been altered slightly; Houston could get as much as half an inch of snow some time later this afternoon. I looked at the fancy weather maps and noticed how the “freeze line” was moving ever closer to us as the front advanced. Rush hour might be a real mess as those still employed navigate Houston streets this evening.
In other chilling news, Obama and Democrat strong arms in congress have decided to move forward with yet another version of health care reform . Erica Werner’s AP article brought out the sad fact that Democrats are willing to push through far reaching legislation in spite of a total lack of bi-partisan input and against the wishes of the American public.
“Democrats in Washington either aren't listening, or are completely ignoring what Americans across the country have been saying,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. “Our constituents don’t want yet another partisan, back-room bill that slashes Medicare for our seniors, raises a half-trillion dollars in new taxes, fines them if they don't buy the right insurance and further expands the role of government.”
I don’t think there’s enough chicken soup to go around if this piece of socialized America gets passed. The storm is headed our way, watch your wallets.
