Head East

I woke up early to drive a little over 100 miles to Tyler, in east Texas. I enjoyed the drive-there experiencing less a real sunrise, than a gradual lightening of the clouds. After my meeting, I stopped at the Tyler Rose Garden. April is a peak time for its bloom. This garden is something of a showpiece for the local rose horticultural industry.

We watched a great documentary tonight on PBS about Haiti and the Dominican Republic. We also ate hot dogs.

Tonight we were under a tornado watch, and a huge thunderstorm flashed through all too briefly. We also are under a huge drought, and the Palo Pinto Mountains area west of Fort Worth is lit up with huge brush fires. Dry and windy, with a chance of rain, seems to be our mantra--at least more than "ohmmm....y'all".
