More of Texas

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We were able to make it back to Indiana.
Colin came down from his dad's house and spent a couple of days with me.  He is growing into a fine young man. (I cringe as I write this, he's my baby boy)  His manners and attitude have greatly improved.  He is a straight A Honor student and helps out in the school book store.  I am very proud of him.

Herb and Kaitlynn dropped me off in Lafayette, and contiued on to deliver the load we had in Conneticut, then they had to dead-head back, but they were able to make it in time for leftovers at the Townsend House where we spent part of our day then we moved on to my parents house for more leftovers.  Not a bad way to spend Thanksgiving Day.
On Friday we had to take Colin back to his Dad,then we went to Russellville, KY for a load going to Conroe, TX.  Then we got a load going to Taos, NM. (A ski town in New Mexico!!!??) 
Then out of Albaquerque (Yes dad, we saw Bugs Bunny and made the Left turn in Albaquerque.) we headed back to Pharr, Texas. Way South of Houston.

On the way to Pharr we passed through El Paso, TX and this is what we saw.

They got nearly 8 inches of snow in El Paso.  Yes folks that is in Texas.

This is the Mountains just over the Mexico boarder and all those clouds are dummping massive amounts of snow.

We are now on our way to Larado, TX to pick up a load going to Santa Fe, NM, Commerce City CA and San Leandro, CA.
This will add CA, and AZ to Kailynn's list of states.

Believe it or not as we head North the tempeture is rising. Go figure.

On our way to CA we will be passing through Roswell, NM and Lake Havasu City, AZ depending on time we hope to stop in both places so Kaitlynn can see the Aliens and London Bridge.


  1. I'm so glad you had a great Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing the pictures, I love seeing all the things you view from your trip on the road.
    I lived in TX for 1 year and during the winter there was a slight ice storm. Everything closed down and there were multiple car pile ups on the roads. It was nothing compared to IN. It was interesting to see how people reacted to the ice. Be careful of the crazies on the road this winter season. You all must come back safe!!

  2. Yeah, I saw where it was snowing in Texas! No snow up here, but temps have dropped into the 30's. Glad you were able to spend the holiday with Colin! And btw...MY 'baby boy' turns 18 next Tuesday. Hard to believe...
