Things are getting more and more eccentric at Casa de la Swain. Changing styles in my textile work, falling in love again with painting and photography...and then there is the ever illusive quest for continuing creativity through working with Eric Maisel. Still on the road teaching, posting now at the Ragged Cloth Cafe and taking the pledge to keep handmaiden up to date.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Leave it to Texas, my first gig is scheduled to depart Sunday morning at 9:50 a.m. I am going to Road to California early to be one of the judges. All sounding good, right? Just one teeny weeny ice storm that arrived tonight....accumulation of one quarter to one half inch of ice on roadways. I only live 20 minutes from the airport but the freeway is chock full of overpasses which they can't sand until the ice has finished building up. If they sand now the sand will just freeze in the ice...trivia for future reference should you need it.
Sweet Ronnie is refusing to drive our beloved Nissan in this all too dangerous situation. However, I do have memories of him driving to work in Dallas is weather like this last year....completely different obviously. Being a good girl, I agree and call Super Shuttle only to be informed that they are completely booked and not accepting any more reservations. I guess I could walk.....if I started now I should make it on time....better pack a lunch. The problem is I don't even own a coat for this kind of weather.
Texas just isn't good at this....and yet it happens at least once every year. I am on hold now with American Airlines. They have already started canceling flights. What are my chances of getting to Ontario, California....not a hot spot major destination. I will keep you up-dated on the saga of Gabrielle trying to get to the airport and actually getting on a plane. Ahhhh, I love the intrigue of traveling.

You know, I never think of Texas and ice in the same sentence...(except maybe in the context of cool drinks!) I hope you get there safely...
