When I set out at 9 a.m., the roads were slick but not bad. The trip to Waco featured a bit of ice, but no sliding. When I got to Waco, the road was the clearest of the trip. I decided to go see Cameron Park there. I wanted to let the day get a bit older before I drove to the heavier weather north of me. Cameron Park turned out to be cool--miles and miles of sidewalks in a sliver park along the Brazos River, with a larger park section at one end. I hit the road back north, but I hope to return with my bicycle on some future warm day.
The next 100 miles north featured snowy landscapes, icy landscapes, and clear landscapes. I could only average about 50 miles per hour, but I kept up a steady pace.
I got to Dallas near noon. I stopped at Boston Market in Plano. When I got near our home, the snowfall had been heavier. A few inches are on the ground--and remain there tonight.
I stopped by Russell Creek Park and watched Killdeers and Northern Flickers forage in the snow. I spent most of my remaining Saturday resting, throwing my dog's toys,
and taking a quick walk in the park, slip-sliding away.
We dined at Silver Thai restaurant. We talked about Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Now we are watching a view-on-demand episode of The Americans.
