Cool and damp becoming cold and wet later. Or so they say.
It was mostly overcast with localized rain in the Houston area. I never saw more than a sprinkle or two, but I could see it coming down in the distance.
The forecasts for freezing temps continue to change daily. I’m not going to worry for a couple of more days. I’ll cover and heat my citrus trees if it’s going to freeze more than one day at a time. Otherwise, I might just cover them, or might let the mature trees ride it out. They’ve had one or two nights with a few hours below freezing already this year. If you’re currently getting winter, I hope your preps are serving you well. Do a quick after action report, or ‘lessons learned’ in the comments when you get a chance.
I’m home this afternoon to pick up daughter two from school so that is going to limit my list of stuff today. I really need to crank through some stuff around here though. As usual. Maybe I’ll start with my Costco order…
The political show trial looks set to continue. What are we still missing from full on marxist socialism/communism? We’ve got the confession/self abasement, the two minutes of hate denunciations, a show trial, self censorship and imposed censorship, a privileged group that can commit street violence, and a group to scapegoat. Secret police? Hit squads roaming the streets? We’re pretty close to the first, and I hope it never gets to the second, but we certainly have people being prosecuted mainly on the basis of their political beliefs.
Not looking good for Freefor at the moment. Still, it’s early days. I’m afraid that if they go looking for ‘right wing domestic terrorism’ they’re gonna find it in the form of an insurgency. And I think shooting judges and politicians can certainly be classified as ‘violence’. That will be a problem for Freefor as they like to think of themselves as ‘the good guys’. It will take some really ‘bad’ guys to get the ‘good’ guys over that hurdle. Given what I’m seeing on the national stage, I think it’s a good bet that those bad guys are up to the task and eager for it. May God have mercy on our souls.
Keep stacking, something bad is bound to happen. And then you’ll be glad you did.
