It's that time again

Hello all! ^_^

It's that time of year again in South Texas were the weather starts warming up a bit and the wildflowers start coming out. Well actually, that started up about a week ago, but who cares about the subtle details? ^_~ To give y'all who are unfamiliar with the climate a look at what its like here, our lows have been around 45 F while are highs are typically around 75 F. I haven't been paying attention to what the wind chill factor is like, but either way it's been heavenly. X3

As for wildflowers, right now you can see bluebonnets and mountain laurels in bloom. (The latter of which creates a sweet smelling aroma that mimics fresh grapes.) However, for those of you interested in going into the hill country to look at the flowers, I'd recommed postponing your plans for about another week. According to a reliable source my Mom the flowers around there aren't quite ready yet. Either way, this definitely should be a good year to see them because of all the rain we've been blessed with. Now that I think about it, this should also be a good year for peaches due to the freezes we had this year...but I'll get back to that at another time (if I remember).

In any event, this time of year also marks Spring Break. I know some of you have already had it, but I'll post these little friendly reminders anyway:

  • Seatbelts are manditory regardless of where you're sitting in the car
  • Texting while driving is still dangerous
  • Beware of school zones; not everybody is having Spring Break at the same time, so using your phone while driving is not advised
  • If you're going on a long trip and need to pack stuff/people, be sure that you do not go over the capacity of your vechicle due to possible lack of visibility (that, and if I'm not mistaken, there's a law out against overstuffing your vechicle with people)
  • And finally, drunk driving is still hazardous to your health and to the welfare of those around you, and it doesn't take much alcohol nowadays to be considered intoxicated

Naturally, all of the above could result in either a license suspension, fines, prison time, or all of the above depending on what you did and whether or not you cooperated with the police.

With that, have a wonderful Spring Break everybody! ^_^
