Human Mismanagement – Conversations with Doodlebug and Sweetie

I am Doodlebug, King of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, something is wrong with this picture.

Sweetie: Yes, something is very wrong. The earth has disappeared…again. This smacks of human mismanagement

Me: Well, it is winter after all.

Doodlebug: No excuse. The ground is cold and white and frozen.

Sweetie: Who is in charge here?

Me: To be honest, the Great Creator put humans in charge of the day-to-day…

Sweetie: Just as I thought. HUMAN MISMANAGEMENT.

Me: Admittedly, we don’t always do the best job.

Doodkebug: Bulldogs would never allow this sort of thing to happen.

Me: I think bulldogs would allow other no-so-good things to happen, honestly.

Swettie: Excuses, excuses! Fix this, Lady Human! NOW!

    1. I watched this odd event unfold on radar. Apparently, a stream of rain from the western coast of Mexico flowed northeast across Texas just in time to get acquainted with an Arctic cold air mass moving in from the north and, as my grandchild would say, Voíla! Snow, sleet, freezing rain, all at once. High of 27° and low of 27° (How did they arrange that?) Not great accumulations, but enough to shut pretty much everything down. Oh, and we are expected to hit 68° on Monday. Welcome to Texas. As our old saying goes, “If you don’t like the weather in Texas, just wait 5 minutes. It’ll change.” Unless, of course, it’s summer and we pop 100° straight for 60 days running.
