    Just made a quick trip to the grocery store here in Arlington. Roads are dry, no indication of ice or water that could freeze overnight. Still cold! I'm ready for Spring.

    The question, however, is 'for what, we are not sure' ;)

    Well...in the short run, you can count on me to be at the tailgate at Tolbert's tomorrow. :)

    THAT is what matters!

    Wait...short run...does that mean we have to leave space for a short bus?

    I thought 75 was the "recommended" speed, but 85 was preferable.

    Any more ice overnight? I saw it was into the 20's again...

    No; the sun is out and the roads are clear (mostly anyway).

    I live 10 miles north of Grapevine on a shady residential street...streets are dry and the sun is out. Cold, but no moisture.

    Viper and Crockett are correct - roads are dry, driving pretty simple. Warming up above freezing (but still cold - wear a warm jacket!).

    Couldn’t get on a flight. The cancellations the other day screwed things up.

    Hopefully moving down there soon so will make future gatherings.

    I’m sure they’ll be asking for bail money soon.

    Great people and great Texas food with a Longhorn Baseball victory over Alabama mixed in for to top it off.

    Until next time ...

    Had a Great time. Met some new folks (new to me in person), Viper, X Misn Tx, mb227 and HHD. Thank you Worsterman for putting this together! Looking forward to the next one.

    HIC - I left before the police arrived so I did not need bail this time.

    A good time was had by all ! Great to meet some new HF attendees. Never had to cough up any of the bail $.

    We called Sabre and passed the phone around - he canceled due to death of a friend on Thurs.

    Mb227 gets the award for traveling the longest distance and Crockett for traveling shortest distance.

    We'll gather Sat. April 23rd at Scholtz's Bier Garten a few hours before the Spring game for anyone that can make it.... those that are interested - we'll sit together at the game.

    Thank you WorsterMan! You are a GREAT host!

    One thing I realize every time I attend is the quality of individuals that show up!

    And the minute you think you are the most LOYAL Longhorn

    And the minute you think you are the most LOYAL Longhorn Fan, you meet a guy like Viper! Garland Owl!

    Horns up!

    Can confirm about Sabre call...though I couldn't hear a damn thing he was saying because the noise level was starting to ramp up in there by the time the phone got to me...

    Am guessing that there are now confirmations that, yes, I AM pretty much the same in person as on here. No filter, plenty of acerbic witticisms...and ANYTHING is fair game to be shredded.

    There IS a remote possibility that I broke the camera...but I did warn that I was not responsible for such things.

    Unrelated...I am back in Houston and have been for a few hours now. Caught some heavy rain around Madisonville that followed me to around Conroe and then just some light road mist. No ice though...
