EAST TEXAS – I know what you’re thinking. If he’s gonna use a song title, why not go with Vanilla Ice and the ever infamous “Ice, Ice Baby” or “Ice Cold Ice” by Hüsker Dü? And if there’s a problem, yo I’ll solve it.
First, it’s Robbie Van Winkle and second, probably only a handful of folks around these parts know who Hüsker Dü is. Besides, I learned how to make an umlaut on the keyboard this week!!
In all seriousness, though, Baby, It’s (about to be) Cold Outside!
Bundle up because Old Man Winter is headed our way.
