There Is Not Much Snow For Us To Go Snow Sledding

So we got some snow today from the winter storm.  I think we got probably about 2 inches of snow here in our area in North Texas.  I was very happy to see it was snowing this morning.  As usual, my daughter slept in late so we didn’t go out to play in the snow until around 2:00 P.M.

I asked my hubby it’s okay to go sledding in the backyard.  He said there is not much snow.  It will just create mud puddles all over the place.  If the snow is deeper, then snow sledding would be a great activity today.  Texas only gets snow once in a while only that a deep accumulation of snow on the ground is unlikely.  Up North it snows most of the time that snow sledding has become a recreation.

But my daughter and I still went outside to play in the snow and built a small snowman. Actually, she wanted to call it snowgirl because she said it’s a girl.

So here’s our front yard.  The road wasn’t even covered with snow.  It is because cars come and go once in a while that friction causes heat and it warms up the road.  Am I right? 🙂

Well, we will be stuck in the house for a couple of days or so I guess.  In this freezing temperature, we don’t want to catch a cold.

Whether you’re currently in search of great Suzuki Outboard Motors or high quality water pump kits, your key to snagging the product you want is finding a great motor company. Unfortunately, many individuals feel that they lack the knowledge necessary to make a prudent decision when it comes to locating an excellent, expedient motor company. Yet this doesn’t have to be a challenge for you. To get the great water sport, boating, or fishing products you need, simply implement the following motor company search strategies:

1. Research The Company Website.

Research is an important and inalienable aspect of the motor company search process. In short, you need to get basic background information about a company before you decide to do business with them. There are several things you’ll want to look into during the research process, including how long the company has been in operation, what type of return policy it offers, and whether the products sold are warrantied. You can typically attain all of this information and more by going on the company’s website. If you were to go on the Cumberland Watersports website right now, you could learn all about the company’s history as well as its consistency in offering the public innovative, reliable, high quality Mercury outboard motors and other wonderful products.

2. Check With The Better Business Bureau (BBB).

In addition to learning more about a motor company by checking its website, you should attain more information by checking with the BBB. Over many years, the BBB has developed a strong, positive reputation as a company that provides consumers with valuable marketplace data. Specifically, the BBB specializes in rating various businesses based on their ability to offer value-adding, transparent services to the public. For this reason, the BBB is a good resource for you to utilize when you’re attempting to determine whether a motor company is legitimate and trustworthy.

3. Look Into Online Reviews.

To ensure that you’re purchasing your products from a high quality motor company, be sure that you’re looking into online reviews. Nowadays, consumers use the internet to post reviews in which they evaluate the services and products offered by specific brands. You can use these reviews to get a broad understanding of how a particular motor company is viewed in the public eye.


Finding the right motor company is important because doing so is a precursor to getting reliable, durable products that will enhance your water sport, boating, and/or fishing experience. By implementing the motor company search strategies outlined above, you can get the absolutely amazing products and services you deserve to have.

Don’t Drive On Icy Road

We are stuck home today.  Winter storm has struck and parts of Texas are icy.  Actually I am hoping for a bit of snow storm so we can go out and play in the snow. Traveling is out of the plan because the roads have sleet.  We already saw a wreck right across the road where we live.  Ugh.

So hubby has a three-day weekend. There is no office today and schools are closed.  We lit up the fireplace to keep the house warm and comfortable.  On cold weather like this, we try to reduce the work of the air-conditioner to save electricity and at least to lower the electric bill.

Anyway, in this low temperature the ice won’t thaw out quickly.  But the ice on the roads will thaw and dry up fast.  Hubby will go to work tomorrow for sure. He is going to drive my car because it has good front brakes.  His truck is giving him problems lately.  We took it to the local auto repair shop few weeks ago for maintenance.  Ten-year old Chevy truck is now weakening.  As of now, we don’t risk driving it on long distance travels especially out-of-States.

I hope everyone is staying warm.  If you are traveling, be very very careful on the road.
