A Little Ice... I think not.

As most of you know our favorite place to camp is in Fort Davis, Texas. There is absolutely nothing there except quiet, good smelling air, no radio station, no TV station.I don't even know if they have a a police department or fire station. So when you are cut off from the world you can't worry about things over which you have no control.
We drove in on a beautiful day. We set up , no problems and waited til the next day to go looking around. We drove to Alpine and to Marfa.

In Marfa we decided to have lunch. We drove around that 3 block town for about 4 circles before we finally spotted a diner/cafe. In we go.The menu was very limited....organic beef meatloaf, grilled chicken and vegetables of the day. The servers say they start serving at 11 and when it's gone it's gone and they run out every day.

As we were leaving the wind got colder and the sun started disappearing.
No fools..we hotfooted it home.
The next morning we thought we had turned left into the Arctic Circle. I don't think I have ever been soooooo cold.There was ice everywhere. Our steps were frozen, the poor trees were bent down from the weight. But ya know we did not have some ditzy weather woman showing us what ice looked like or telling us to stay off the roads while she drove all over the county. Nice.
