P. 278: Mardi Gras Festival 2021 details announced!

Recommended Posts

that 60% chance of snow is what's gonna do it.

otherwise the Texas parks wouldn't care. .

but yeah, I pinged Kim earlier today to see if she can push a week. . . hopefully can go the 21st instead.

Park President Jeffrey Siebert has been sharing some wonderful pictures online! (I did mention to him I was going to post them here at TPR)  

^ I think it's a sign Hell has frozen over, and maybe the GOP Senators will vote to convict

Now, Bill. . you have to search for the clinical term:  "Blueprints shaped like penis"

And as Bert knows push it back I did! Yes, no change fees but had to re-finagle hotel, flight, car rental, work days off; yada, yada, yada

But convinced it's the right decision, not only is it looking bad weather wise in Texas but they are predicting several inches of snow for us on Monday, really did not want to risk getting stuck; or flying down there to sit in a hotel room.  We are on day 5 of an anticipated 13 day stretch of below freezing weather.

So we will be at SFFT on 2/20. (We can't do the next week because the boy has to start training for the season at SFSTL) There is actually an ACE event that day so will get some ert and whatnot. Then will go to SW and ZDT's on Sunday. Since we can't fit SFOT in without the 3 day weekend, we are thinking of doing a 1 day, fly down in the morning and fly home that night, trip in March during the week they are open for their spring break. That's if I let the boy miss another day of school since our spring breaks are not the same. But he's a senior so........

 Thanks for the confirmation that I made the right decision. Today was day #6 of an anticipated 13 days in a row below freezing for us. When you guys are in the teens on Sunday we are supposed to have below 0 temps. I swear if the long forecast holds and it is in the 60's when we get there weekend after next I may be putting on my swimsuit and looking for a pool 😜

oh yes. . DEFINITELY the correct call.

right now, forecast for Sunday/Monday has low temps predicted to be -1 (with high of 8).   yeah.
we're under Winter storm warning until Monday afternoon (sleet/ice thruout weekend), with 100% chance of Snow on Monday. 

then a 2nd front coming thru on Wed with 60% chance of snow!

*but* right now, on Sat, 2/20, high is supposed to be low 60's, and on Sunday High in the 70's

here's our back peach tree from a few hours ago (we've gotten SUPER lucky and haven't lost any limbs from the large trees in the front - the rest of the neighborhood looks like a bomb dropped with broken trees everywhere - but seeing the forecast? yeah, we're gonna lose some of our tree limbs).

Yep. This is the view from my bedroom window. And we will be under a wind chill advisory starting 6 pm tonight - Monday morning with snow Sunday night and more on Wednesday. Right after I took this I went out into the frozen tundra and unfroze the water in the bird bath and refilled the feeders and I had flocks of grateful birds all over the place. I cannot tell you what the thought of 60 or 70 degrees feels like. Not supposed to get above freezing here for another week.

^ I read you guys are getting hammered. Stay safe and I hope your power stays on.

thanks. . . don't wanna jinx it - especially since it's a statewide mandate for the rolling blackouts.    We don't use Austin Energy tho, since we're technically not in the city.   Our power company IS doing the rolling blackouts too, but not as severe as Austin Energy is doing, and hasn't affected us (yet).

I know you are getting freakish weather for your neighborhood and I hopefully they don't mess with your power!! ...........BUT you have sun, haven't seen that for ages. The high in the Lou today was 5, with a wind chill of -14. We are getting about 7 inches of snow as well, right now as I look out the window it is snowing sideways. And we are getting more snow on Wednesday, but good news it is looking good for us to get out of here Friday morning and the current forecast for Saturday in San Antonio is almost 55 degrees warmer than it is here right now. Day 10 of below freezing weather.

Wow, that's a ton of snow. Stay warm!

It's crazy that southern Texas is experiencing record low temperatures and record snowfall, whereas here in Utah we are having slushy rain/flurries with temperatures in the upper-30s and an overall severe LACK of snowfall this winter.

How "fluffy friendly" is Wonder Woman? I can fit in any standard RMC with retractable belts such as Steel Vengeance and Twisted Timbers of I remember correctly (with a good push from an operator), and can usually barely fit the b&m invert clones on the non-modified rows with the belt being just barely king enough, but I've never been on a single rail and obviously the restraints are much different. Are they more lenient than a standard RMC? Or something like a standard b&m invert? I know it depends on where you carry your weight, but just need a general comparison.

Also: How are the seat belts on Iron Rattler? I struggled with Goliath at SF Great America but was barely able to ride it. Are the belts a fixed length and are they hard to deal with or is it pretty much anybody can fit the belt but just have to get the green light on the main restraint?

I gained a little weight from my "normal" but luckily I have a few months to lose a few pounds.

You are probably going to be ok.  IR doesn't use RMC trains.  They are a bit roomier and better.  Texas Giant has them, too.

WW is probably going to be tight but the reps can give it a good shove and usually get a couple more clicks.  Not all the vests are as flexible.  After you get in and pull it down, use your shoulders to try and pull the vest out some more.  Shorter than ~6' and that might not be a concern.  You'll understand once you get on it if you remember.

Goliath (Batman clone) has typical big boy seats in a couple rows.  

I don't think anything else should be a problem.
