In other parts of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex; not so much. 6 confirmed dead, 14 missing, hundreds injured, mostly in the Cleburne and Granbury areas.
10 Tornadoes reported last night across north Texas. We didn’t have one in Arlington but my son (out picking up his wife & not taking cover) says he saw rotation just south of Bunker BS.
* – at least I am physically; mentally I’m not so sure yet. Spent 45 minutes in walk in closet with 2 dogs, a 10 month old, a 2 year old and a 4 year old. While the alert sirens wailed in the background and She Who Lets Me Make Her Coffee Every Morning kept running out to see if she could see the rotation.
Edited to add – Saw these at the last Self-Reliance Expo – Storm Dorms Storm Shelters – thought it was a great idea. Made the mistake of showing it to SWLMMHCEM last night. Going to have to figure out how to finance it.
Didn’t make a Cabela’s run on Saturday; due to a CHL renewal class.
Good news have everything needed to get 4 more years on my license.
Bad news – I waited until 6 weeks or so before my license expires; might not get my new license bsck in time due to the backlog at the Department of Public Safety.
Since I didn’t get ammo Saturday, I hit Academy this morning on the way to my allergy shot.
2 boxes of Monarch .380ACP (no limit!!!) and 1 box of Monarch 9 mil.
There was plenty of pistol calibers there so things might be getting closer to normal.
Just have to stop states from passing laws like Colorado Connecticut stampeding people again.
Didn’t really notice unfortunately.
She Who Lets Me Make Her Coffee Every Morning had a 24 hour shift at the hospital. This training to be a Hospital Chaplain can be a little rough.
So Saturday morning, I got up and took her to the hospital. For some reason she didn’t want to worry about driving home after being awake 24 hours.
Dropped her off and then realized a.) it was 7:45 a.m. b.) I was wide awake and unlikely to go back to sleep, and c.) Cabelas opened at 9:00 a.m. A “plan” soon formed.
Headed up the highway toward the store stopping to replenish the 4 footed security patrol’s food source. Still made it to Cabelas in time to join about 25 people waiting in the vestibule for the doors to open.
Man this late winter is rough!!! It must have been down to 40 degrees Saturday morning.
Cabelas has a 5 box total limit on all calibers with a 1 box limit on .22 LR — couldn’t get near it or the 9 mm. Did pick up some .38 special though.
Then home to clean out the turtle tank — I really need to figure out how taking care of my son’s turtle became my responsibility.
The rest of Saturday and Sunday was taken up by club business. Updated renewals, processing applications — including performing background checks, etc. Folks, it is crock of bovine excrement that is being peddled by Bloomberg, the media and other anti-rights cultists. There a dozens of sites and ways to conduct background checks on private sales without having to go though a licensed dealer. Heck, they could write a law requiring the government to open the N.I.C.S. to citizens via phone or web but they don’t want to.
Their true goal isn’t background checks but registration.
Sorry to get off on a mini-rant. It was a productive weekend. Not incredibly busy just constant. I think I should be able to apply for a refund or do over — due to circumstances; I was unable to sleep in either day. That just ain’t right.
