Well we broke a 102 year record for cold.  23F yesterday with a wind chill of "COLD, Holy SH*T BATMAN ITS COLD!".  

 

What is the reason for these weather/temperature changes?

Ummm wasn't someone laughing at me when I thought 95-100F was warm this summer ;)

It goes from 80 to 39 overnight.  Only in Texas can the weather be that crazy.


Bah, when I lived in Wisconsin , there was a day where temps dropped 40 degrees in about 4 hours in the middle of the day.

 

That's a weekly occurrence in Colorado especially in the spring and fall. The  change from sunny and 65 to snowing and 25 during the course of a couple hour hike can put a serious damper on a day in the mountains.

It is cold and wet here again.  I don't mind the cold so much, as I mind the damp cold.

Only in Texas would people be writing news stories about IKEA coming to town.  Presswood furniture compared to real wood.  I am looking forward to watching the people flock to it.  So San Antonio finally will have an IKEA store.  The only other thing that gets people that excited is Rodeo season (next month).

Serbia also.

"IKEA for a first time in Serbia"

Forgetting that it was already there 1979-1992...

I want to go to one just to try the food they serve. See how it compares to the fare served at Sam's Club. I'm a real connoisseur of prepackaged processed garbage.

Wasn't there IKEA manufacturing earlier than that?

 

 

But it also makes local news when some big chain comes to town here. They just buy the articles about the project to drum up their opening and put their brand into peoples minds. a local supermakrket building was taken over by a different chain here in the area and been renovated and restuctured and there were a lot articles in local newspapers and news websites around some pretty petty drama around the whole deal. Much of it seemed artificially blown up to keep it in the headlines. so really not surprising that such a move makes the news.

Actually it is freshly frozen and then heated at the IKEA store. Pretty good stuff actually for precooked food. Even the instant potatoe mash is edible and not window putty.

Pro-Ukrainians claimed IKEA plans to finally open first store in Ukraine as major step toward Europe (they ignore the fact IKEA is present in barbaric Russia not only with 14 big shops -annual turnout is 63mln people- but also with production lines).

Well Rodeo has officially opened with the Cowboy Breakfast.  Ikea opens on Feb 13th, it should be a crazy time, so I will wait a few day (or weeks) before I go look at the new superstore.
