Chills and thrills

Tis 23 degrees at Neely’s Canyon in Austin with more ice and snow on the way. Forecast says 10 by tomorrow morning. 7 by Tuesday morning. And, naturally, I’m out of cigarettes. A good time to quit? Or to make a slow and careful “run” to the nearby drugstore.

UPDATE: Chickened out. Too cold out there. I’m going to make one pack last four days.

MORE: It didn’t. But there’s enough snow in the parking lot to keep me inside. Plus the nearest stores are closed. I’m just imagining it’s a series of 12-hour flights to Israel and savoring how good it will taste when I finally get one.
