You thought Spring Break would be warm because it was in the 80’s in December? Yeah, that’s not how it works here in Texas. Here’s to hoping everyone left town for warmer climates this week and if you didn’t, let this be a lesson to you. And yes, we secretly love the times when the entire town up and leaves so we get the run of the place. It’s these times that make Murder-Kroger almost bearable at 6:30 AM. As always, hashtag your Instagrams so you’ll be featured in our best blog post of all time on Monday, What We Did.
