This isn't supposed to happen in Texas!

DW and I awoke to this. Poor old Pace Arrow isn't insulated enough for this kind of weather!

That is normal winter weather for Texas. You can freeze one day and get a sunburn the next. 35 tonight and 70 and sunny here tomorrow.

Well, in the Houston Greater Metropolitan Area, it was a deluge of rain that flooded streets. I'm sure glad that 3" of rain per hour was not snow.

As we say, "If you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait 5 minutes."

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

It's warm up here!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm in New Brunswick, Canada and there is no snow. The temperature has been 50 plus since Christmas. Maybe the frozen north has moved with global warming!

We often say the same thing the heat down your way. When it hits 73 here in the middle of summer we complain.
