DEBORAH CROMBIE: So there must be a few parts of the country that are NOT having bad weather, right??? But north Texas isn't one of them. We are having a "blue norther". (Do people in other parts of the country say that?)
The temperature has dropped FIFTY degrees since two this afternoon. Which makes it now 23, with a wind chill of 10 degrees. Forecast low tonight is 19, and tomorrow night 14. This is really COLD for us, and our houses--or at least our old house--are not built for this kind of weather. We have drained hoses and are leaving cabinet doors open and I managed to cover some of the deck and porch plants, although with such a hard freeze I don't much expect it to help.
But, unlike other parts of the country, we have no precipitation expected. I know many of you are mired in snow and ice, Interstates are closed, people are stranded. So, please, check in and let us know where you are and how you're doing!
And stay warm, everyone! Cozy up with a mug of hot chocolate and a good book!!!
