It’s Cold in Dallas

It’s been so cold in Dallas these past few days, below freezing, I’m not complaining, I’m just saying. I missed work for a couple of days. I wanted to go out and take photos of Dallas covered with ice and snow but I was too cold and worried about the icy roads.
I did manage to get out for a bit and take some photos of the ice around my apartment. This southern California boy’s fingers were frozen within minutes and somehow I forgot there was ice on the ground and carelessly took a step and slipped and fell right down onto a patch of ice. It hurt, but it was funny too.
All this ice and snow reminds me of my days in Seoul, South Korea, the winters were extremely cold and icy there. I don’t think people in Dallas really know what they are doing when it gets this cold. On my way to work this morning I took a this photo with my iPhone while going through McDonald’s drive-thru:

McDonald's sign: buy a bag of ice in the snow

I hope everyone is staying warm, I recommend that you all take advantage of all this slowing down and free time to get some personal projects completed, like organizing your photos or backing them all up onto your new Verbatim 2 Terabyte Hard dive.
