I swept as much as I could. It doesn't help when a water line breaks and the city leaves a mess after the fix.
It could be worse. I could be stuck in an airport somewhere, waiting for the weather to let up a little. Thankfully the climate in Laredo is never an issue, aside from the unrelenting summer heat which gives way to sweat as soon as you head out the door.
And my whole family is within arms reach. I don't have to worry about any holiday travel, unless it's to get away from them.
