Yep. Lowes @ 2.5 miles. Ace Hardware @ 9+ miles. It's cold outside, You want to get done. Which would you choose?

Seriously - I went into a hardware store in small touristy town (minor battle in the Texas Revolution) in south-central Texas. By the time I left I had spent over $75 and it took an hour to look at everything they had. Stop in the small town hardware stores if you're in your cage - you'll need it to tote the stuff you'll buy back home.
