We’ve all watched the weather all week with anticipation of the Big Snow of the year. It was March of 2009 when we got that heavy early Saturday Morning Snow. It was fun and gone by lunch. Now the forecast has gone from 1 to 2 inches to 3 to 5 inches late this afternoon. Snow on Friday! Auburn Schools, Auburn University are closing on Friday, but Opelika City Schools were planning to open and let the kids go at lunch. Now, that’s when the big weather is scheduled. We’ll see how that works out. If I get a note from Becky at Opelika Schools, I’ll share it here first.
I was over at the “Ack Steakhouse” (hey Redman, you’re right, that’s what it says! ) They’ve got a new Tortilla Soup that is the best I’ve had since I tasted the same at the Four Seasons Resort in Dallas. Congrats to Emily, who is a fan of the soup as well, on word that she and that “Best” guy would have a little one join them on July 4th!
Santa was in the restaurant with his wife again this evening. They are more regulars than I am. I have been growing somewhat of a beard the past month. I got to thinking, if he is doing the party with the little kids, I might be able to do the ones at Auburn University. Soriety Santa! What do you think?
And for my friends that like racing and the University of Alabama. The folks over at Aaron Rental, who also sponsor the Aaron’s 499 at Talledage in the spring, have a special paint job going on the car for the race. You can pre-order a die cast of the “Double O” car at the store with expected delivery in May. I’ve got one scheduled. From the Aaron’s website: Every fan will want this limited edition, die-cast replica of the race car David Reutimann will drive at Talladega, in the Aaron’s 499 on April 25, 2010. This salute to the University of Alabama 2009 National Championship will be rolling off the shelves. Get it now. Click Here to learn more!
And does another Alabama Race hold a surprise for those on the track that get passed by some local favorites in a VW or Audi. Could be General! More on that later!
