Weather Could Be Messy This Weekend

I hope you strung up the Christmas lights on the outside of the house last weekend, because this will not be the weekend to do it!  Unless of course you like getting pelted in the face with rain and a ball of sleet while you're up there on the ladder.

We'll avoid the worst of the wintry weather that's about to hit Texas, but the National Weather Service says we'll have the chance of freezing rain by Saturday night.

When will it end?

Troopers Are Watching Texas Roads Today

Today is one of the biggest travel days of the year, and state police are out in force making sure everyone is buckled up and not drinking and driving.

Be forewarned!  Drive safely, don't let the other crazy drivers get to you, and get where you're going safely.  And if you're going to get really festive and have a beverage or two because sometimes that makes dealing with relatives easier, have a designated driver!

Heading To Galveston Beach? No More Free Parking!

The beach is always an inviting attraction during the long, hot summer months, and if you think that summer is winding down, think again.  The long range forecast for the entire state of Texas is calling for "warmer than normal" conditions for the month of August.

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.

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.

Holiday Weekend Means Texans Hit the Road

Triple A says more than 34 million Americans will drive more than 50 miles from home over the three day Memorial Day weekend. In Texas, that's 2.8 million people clogging up the roads. And your plans?

My family plans to skip the road trip and do something totally different....backyard camping! Many of my friends have been doing it lately with their kids and posting the pics on Facebook. I'm inspired to try it. Apparently all we have to do to have backyard fun is haul the sleeping bags outside and pitch a tent back there, and save the cost of admission to a park. It is pretty smart. You have your own private space with no wayward frisbees finding their way into your business, and all the conveniences like showers and toilets stay within just a few steps. AND, you don't have to lug that heavy cooler either, with frosty beverages in the fridge nearby.

If you do hit the road this weekend, know the police will be watching CLOSELY for wrong moves.
