The Chilling Sound of Your Doom

Hello, kids, I live in Texas, and if you’re paying any attention to the news, you’ll note that we’re having one of the biggest cold snaps on record! The entire state is under a winter storm warning — from the Panhandle to the Gulf Coast, from East Texas to El Paso!

We hit -15 degrees last night. It was genuinely horrible. No power outages for us — yet — and not much snow, but it’s almost impossible to get warm when the weather is this bad.

And it’s really hard to get much writing done on the blog, because my computer is right next to the coldest window in the house.

So I’m getting a quick blog post out right now, featuring a few people who feel even colder than I do right now.

Now I’m off to put on another two coats and cover up with another three blankets. Everyone stay warm!

Spring Has Sprung

According to my calendar, today is the first day of spring. So the nice weather can start riiiiiight about… now. And warm temperatures, please — not extreme wind, thunderstorms, or tornadoes, please.

So to commemorate this hopefully happy occasion, here’s a bunch of comics dedicated to spring.






(Yeah, “Hellraiser Spring Slaughter.” Anything for a seasonal tie-in, I guess.)





Seriously, ready for that nice weather right now. I mean now. Now, please. Now? Okay, okay, how ’bout riiiight… now.

Bah, next thing you know, we’ll have a blizzard, just to spite me…

Snow Day

First snow in late January? BAH! Hope it melts off soon. I hate snow.

I really hope it melts off soon. I been eating canned soup too much, and I need to go to the store. Better dig out the parka and snow tires…

S-s-so C-c-c-cold…


Yeah, I know it’s supposed to warm up later today. By this afternoon, it’ll be downright comfortable.

But for right now? First major cold snap Lubbock has had this winter? I think I should just go back to bed and try to stay warm, right?

Coulda been worse, I guess. It could’ve snowed. It’s weird how many Lubbock drivers have no clue how to drive on snowy or icy roads…
