Anyone else noticed how crazy the weather has been this year? Believe it or not at one point this winter there was snow in at least some part of 49 of the 50 states, over 60% of the country blanketed in snow at one time.

It’s nothing compared to what people in the Northeast received earlier this year, but Waco received a big snowfall today. Roads closed. Schools closed. It disrupted the normal course of business. This kind of thing happens almost every day in places like Minneapolis and Toronto. But for us in Texas, it’s quite unexpected.
