Dreaming of a Wet Christmas? Santa Delivers.

So it's not white. It's a wet Christmas.

The rumbles of thunder make it seem more like April than December, and if you're traveling today expect the rain showers to continue through tonight. If you're traveling north, the chances of seeing snowflakes increase.

Busy Travel Weekend Ahead in Texas

By Monday and Tuesday we'll be sitting comfortably around the Christmas tree, sipping egg nog with family and trying to figure out how in the world a Furby really works.

In the meantime, it's a big ole traffic jam! Today and tomorrow are two of the busiest travel days of the year.

Triple A estimates 7.7 million Texans will be traveling more than 50 miles from home between Saturday and January 1. Millions of packages are on their way too, but they may not get here by Christmas.

Gas Prices Fall Across East Texas

Have you driven by a Lufkin gas station lately and done a double take to make sure you’re not seeing things? Prices at some stations have dropped below the $3 mark. It seems odd to cheer for gas, but it kinda makes ya wanna say, “Woohoo!” Especially if you’re traveling for Christmas.

In mid to late November, gas prices in East Texas were about 15 cents higher than they are now. A gallon of gas averages about $3.10 in Texas, down from $3.25 around Thanksgiving.

Amtrak Trains May Zip Through East Texas

Have you ever ridden on a train? There's something nostalgic about it, not to mention the fact that it saves wear and tear on your own car, and the hassle of fighting with other drivers to get where you're going.

Might East Texas get Amtrak service? There's an Amtrak route now that runs from San Antonio to Chicago.

And there's a push for Amtrak to extend it's service from Shreveport-Bossier City to Dallas-Fort Worth, which would take the trains right through east Texas and give us a fast track in both of those directions.

How close is it to reality?

What is the Most Common Item Hotel Travelers Leave Behind?

Have you ever checked out of a hotel, traveled home, and then realized you left something behind in the room?

I have. On a road trip to the north, my family stayed at a hotel in Wichita, Kansas, and when we got home we could only find one Dora The Explorer sock. In the process of jumping on the bed and running around the room, our 3-year old at the time must have shed a sock and a cleaning person whose daughter also may have had just one sock, hit the jackpot.

What is the most common item hotel travelers leave behind? It has something to do with your smart phone.

Construction crews start work today on US 59 and they're shifting lanes at Loop 287. There may be traffic delays while drivers get use to that.

This time around, the vote was centered on the top 10 "best small cities", five of which I've seen up close and personal, and one that I actually lived in.

Nearby Town Named the Oddest in the US

Texas has its share of strange town names.

The state is dotted with towns with names that stand out like, Nimrod, Bug Tussle, Uncertain, Zipperlandville, and Ding Dong.

But thankfully, none of those were singled out by a new article featuring the most unfortunate town names in the US. Findmypast.com gives us the winner – or perhaps the loser in this case. It’s not far away, so maybe you’ve been there.

Top US Small Towns Named

There's something inherently cool about a small town. The people are nice (although they all know each other and can be in everyone's business), there's no traffic, and the stress level can be lower. I'm headed to my one-stoplight hometown in Nebraska for a little family bonding time next week and we're planning to sit on the deck and stare at the trees, and ask the local farmers for permission to walk into their fields and pick corn. Why vacation in a tropical location when you can have that kind of fun? Small towns rock.

Rand McNally and USA Today named the best small towns in all of America this week. Did Lufkin and Nacogdoches make the list?
