Assuming (hoping) that there will not be any more severe winter storms this year, we can say that Winter Storm Landon of 2022 wasn't nearly as severe as Winter Storm Uri 2021 was.
Because of it, some people found creative ways to play in the little snow and ice we had. More on that in a minute.
How Much Snow Did Winter Storm Landon Give Us?
According to The National Weather Service, Killeen saw between 1 and 1.5 inches of snow and Temple got over an inch of snow.
It's the ice that has been the problem!
The Ice Was The Problem
According to Yahoo News, Governor Abbott issued a disaster proclamation in 17 counties and called the ice in Texas “one of the most significant icing events that we’ve had in the State of Texas in at least several decades”.
Ice Wasn't A Problem For These Killeen Stunt Devils
Before we watch this, understand that this is very dangerous.
But at the same time, this looks so cool!
I was scrolling on Facebook (as usual), and saw this and was totally blown away!
Some people slide around (on foot) and play on the ice, while other people crank it up a notch and get in their cars in the frigid temperatures and do spin-outs in parking lots. LOL!
This was near the parking lot of the Killeen Guitar Center.

Wow! What I Saw When I Turned Left Inside Buc-ee's In Temple, Texas [PICS]
As the saying goes... everything's bigger in Texas.
Having said that, I've never seen a gas station with more than 50 gas pumps.
Then I visited Buc-ee's.
What is Buc-ee's?
If you don't know or have never visited the popular one-stop highway shop that has over 35 Texas locations in Texas, you need to!
You can get everything in Buc-ee's from gas, to keychains to candles to brisket to goat milk soap and everything in between.
Buc-ee's Has Expanded
According to their site
, Buc-ee's, not only has multiple locations here in Texas, they have expanded to southern states like Georgia, Alabama, and Florida.
The World's Largest Buc-ee's Coming Soon
Later this year, Buc-ee's has plans to open
"The World's Largest Buc-ee's" located in Sevierville, Tennesse. It will have 120 fuel pumps, a 250-foot car wash, and 74,000 square feet of indoor shopping.
I've Never Turned Left
In almost 7 years, I've been here in Texas, I've never turned left when I went inside a Buc-ee's.
I either walk straight to the bathroom or turn right to get water or gummy bears or chocolate almonds. (I get the same thing every time)
But yesterday, I decided to turn left and (I know I'm late) I was mesmerized!
For starters, I never had a reason to turn left.
I've visited the one in Waller County, Bastrop, and the Temple location.
Every time I've visited Buc-ee's, I've never had a reason to go "shopping" always a bathroom break and then back on the road.
So here are some of the cool things I saw when I turned left at Buc-ee's in Temple, Texas!
Here Are 6 New Businesses That Opened In Killeen, Texas in 2021
I've watched the local news for a long time just to get in tune with current events weather etc.
Once a week there used to be a food critic who had a feature on the news, and he would visit different restaurants in the city and taste their food on camera.
Tamika, one of our account executives here at the station, saw the same types of food reviews on the news and suggested it would be a good idea that I do the same thing with businesses and restaurants here in Killeen.
And here we are today!
So far, I've visited 5 Killeen restaurants and one out in Temple with 6 different vibes and food choices.
