Waco Theater (Hippodrome) - closed

Waco Theater (Hippodrome)

I learned today that the Waco Hippodrome has closed its doors for the foreseeable future and has released all of its employees. It was already having financial trouble and the economy certainly did not help it.

I hope that someone is able to step up and get it back up and running again.

Snowpocolypse Waco 2010

Originally uploaded by cmiked.

We had ourselves an old fashioned Snow Day yesterday. That was the most it had snowed in Waco in a long time. The boys and I had a blast. It was really wet snow too so snowballs and snowmen were easy. We followed it up by drying out in front of a big old fire and drinking hot chocolate. The winter needs to be over now as I am out of firewood. I'm just sorry Amy missed it. She was out of town at her Great Uncle Joe's funeral.

Update:  I see now where a record was set.  3 inches of snow in Waco.

Amy was taking Will to his den meeting last night and called me just as she left. I grabbed the long lens and slipped out the front door and sneaked around to the back of the house to get a good look. He was hanging out in our pecan tree just watching things. I hope he hangs around as we have spotted some mice hanging out on the bird feeders.
