if you ever go to Austin, eat here

We drove to Austin last weekend to visit Dan's friend Judy, who he worked with while we were living in Portland. It was a great time, which included a trip to Cabellas, and unforgettably delicious BBQ at this place:

The Salt Lick doesn't look very fancy on the outside, but just wait until you taste the bbq!

This nice big smoking pit greets you as you walk in the front door. That's when your mouth starts to water...

Here's our crew. All of them related to Judy, and all were very welcoming to us outsiders. :)

The meal was served all-you-can-eat family style. This is one of 3 huge plates of meat that we consumed. Definitely the best brisket I have ever had. The sausage and ribs were excellent, too.

So if you ever find yourself in the Austin area, be sure to take time and eat at the Salt Lick - I know we'll be back!

Why is there always one strand of lights that doesn't work?

Snow Day... Houston Style

Holy smokes, it's snowing in Houston!

And it's "real" snow, too. Light and fluffy, just not sticky. It was rain when I left work work this morning, but by 8:00, it was snowing, and it hasn't stopped!

I thought we moved to Texas to avoid this white stuff....
