It happens at least once a year. The big snow scare. In Texas, whenever the residents hear snow or ice a freak out will occur. Students and teachers begin to predict school closures, people flood to the grocery stores and buy out the entire store, and the road ways become potential death roads. The lack of experience with ice or snow creates chaos among the majority of people. Northerners have accumulated up to 17 feet of snow around their road ways and have successfully continued with their lives.
The Texas mood swing has begun. It ended last week with beautiful weather in the 50’s and 60’s only to take a 20 to 30 degree drop followed by rain that will more than likely turn to sleet, ice, and more than likely snow. Road conditions all over have deteriorated and travel has become slow and dangerous.
Texans try their best to continue with life as normally as possible and some are more capable than others. You can find the countless memes on the internet joking about the lack of experience with snow the south has. Whether Texas gets hit as hard as people are predicting or if it is much less than expected you can bet that Texans will push through whatever is thrown their way in the only way they know how.

As my first blog I wanted to do something really interesting and cool, however; all I can think about now is my poor carpet so I have to write about it. This year has been pretty dry. Which left us with low lake levels an high water bills. However a recent random rain brought in a problem that I had never dealt with before.
Lets start from the beginning. On a rainy day, my dog insisted he had to go outside even though he had been out two times already. Normally my dog has no issues going out and coming back in quickly and relatively clean on rainy days so out he went. I had things to do so I wasn’t paying much attention when he asked to come back in the house. I opened the door and by the time I noticed something strange on our back porch he had already shot in the house and all around the bedroom and the living room. For some crazy reason my normally clean dog had decided to dig a mud hole in the backyard and then layer my carpet and rug with his new found love of mud.
I have always been told to let the mud dry and then vacuum it up so it won’t get rubbed in. And that is exactly what I did. Only to find out that there was something strange about this “mud” that the dog brought it. It left huge stains on the carpet after it was vacuumed up. I pulled out every stop when it came to stain removal, carpet cleaners, home remedies, and even a spot shot machine. Nothing worked. I just knew I was going to have to live with these awful stains. So as a last resort I decided to fork out the money and have professionals come in.
This was the best decision ever! I should have skipped all the other mess I tried. I found the best pricing with McKinney Carpet Care. Not only did they have great pricing but they were able to schedule me in quickly without any fuss. All of the stains have now been removed and my rug and carpet look better than when we first bought them!
Even though this was not what I wanted to talk about for my first post it feels great to have gotten it out there. Stay tuned for the next blog, you never know what is going to happen!
