    1F here at 2am. Praise Creator, no frozen pipes that I know of and lights are still on. Coldest part of the night yet to come. I keep getting up every hour and checking on things. Snow and ice tomorrow night. Keeping praying for the tree over the power lines.

    I guess what really upsets me about that , is that we taught our children to be self sufficient and taught them to be able to do all the things they needed to know in any occasion ! And with all that , it seems they either didn't listen or just didn't care enough to practice any of the things we tried to teach them !And now our grandchildren have to pay for that !Grrrr.....

    I thought I knew all the cries, sighs, and groans of my ancient, grumpy house. Today it fired off a new protest. Twice so far, it has made a spectacular sound that is a cross between breaking glass and a firecracker. Scared the tar out of me.

    Well , it got colder ! LOL And our shepherd dog Troy Poopstwice decided he needed to go at 5:30 this morning and I was not real happy with that decision. Getting up out of a super warm comfy bed to go out into -6 degrees with a wind chill of 20+ below is just not my idea of a good time !Our other dog Thomas Barksalot , is a short haired dog and he just doesn't like the cold or the snow! When he goes out it's all business and ready to come back in ! LOL
    One of our daughters lives in Houston and they lost power last night ! Said it might be till Tuesday before it comes back on. She is totally unprepared. Said it's really cold. Hard to not wanna just go get them !Anyway , everyone stay safe , stay healthy , stay as warm as possible ! Laterzzz

    The ice is all gone. Now what fell out of the sky and is blowing around is actual snow. Now the second storm on Weds, which is going to dump another +4” on top of this mess is going the be our “Wintry mix”(tm).

    That is the one I’m scared of. That stuff is heavy. I’ve got one tree left. It makes me nervous. The first tree I had to take out, dropped a 1/3 of itself on my car, the year we got 12” of snow.

    That wreck was hideous. 133 cars and 6 dead. It happened on a section of elevated, express lanes. That section is in a dip with reduced visibility. People follow too closely under dry conditions. Folks aren’t much better in snow and ice. There’s also a lot of debate about whether the lanes had been pretreated.

    The windmills out in West Texas are frozen. Texas is a leading producer of wind power. A big chuck of our generating capacity is off line. They started the rolling blackouts at 3am. They’re asking us not to bathe, cook, do laundry and unplug everything non-essential. I’m hoping my neighborhood will be spared since we’re jambed in among all these hospitals.

    After growing up in snow country, I’m a connoisseur of school closing announcements. I just heard one I always dreamed of as a kid. “If you’re listening to us, your school is closed.” The announcer says he read the list and the only thing that is open was “Our Lady of The Badass. But, you had to walk up hill both ways.”

    Well, they can’t get enough gas for the generators. As we’re headed into the coldest part of the night, we’re looking at rolling blackouts. Please oh ye nice grid operators at ERCOT, blackout the coast and far south Texas. The temps are survivable down there.

    259K and dropping.

    In the 40s here the last couple of days, but wet-very wet. I didn't know whether or not I should break out a boat or the scuba gear to get to work. LOL! It started raining Sat. morning and didn't stop until early Sunday evening. It's supposed to rain off and on for the next several days, too. Rainy season beats fire season any day, though. Princess Diva isn't happy with the rain. She doesn't like whatever litter hubby got last time, so now, she has to go out to use the bathroom. I swear, she gets more like a dog everyday. At least she's the only cat we've got. The people up the road are feeding about 50 feral cats-and no, I'm not exaggerating the number. The brother who lived on the property started feeding them, and when he died last summer, they started doing it. If the cats haven't been fed when I go by there on my way home in the mornings, they are all over their porch and yard. It's like something out of a horror movie. It ought to be interesting this summer when the flea population kicks in.

    OLC, I've seen some of the freezing weather you guys have been having-and that 100 car accident on the interstate. That's stuff my nightmares are made of. Our main source of heat is a propane heater in the dining room, so even if the power goes out, we're good if it's cold. Be safe everybody!

    I remember the winter of 1971, 1972, 1981 to 1982 and 1987 with the winter of 1981 to 1982 with very much snow.

    A lot of cars and their batteires wnet down in that winter. Even the Autobahn wasn't always and everywhere snwo free.

    I remember driving in Januray from Düsseldorf to Feldafing about 850 km in snow drift.

    IOt was the year when in February I froze my toes a little bit in the field.

    Yeah I remember as a teenager before Minnesota had the cold weather law. The gas company would shut the gas off in the winter when you was behind on payments. Cold water showers in December wasn't no fun getting ready for school. I remember smiling and reassuring mom that doing the best you can when it came down to measuring what was really important. Mom was wonder woman straight up! God I love being Indigenous!

    The experts say this type of "cod snack" hasn't happened in 40 years ! So today I was trying to remember that time in my life ! LOL I was living in Ft.Scott and was renting a house with a furnace that just couldn't keep up ! The house was cold and I remember blocking off rooms to keep the heat in the kitchen and livingroom , and leaving the water dripping so it wouldn't freeze. I remember using my 4x4 truck to chauffeur employees to their jobs at walmart because the roads were slick and people couldn't get to work. That was a crazy winter !

    My prayers are with you all the time.

    WD, we have golfstream weather. Without out, we would freeze like Hudson Bay. Says, we would have what you have. Yeah than I would invest in a genrator large enough to support the needed electicity.

    Ches, sounds as if you have more weather like we have.

    Shall we invest in an electrxity power plant in your neigbourhood by crowd funding?

    We're in S.E.Kansas. It quit snowing for now. Looks like somewhere between 4-6 inches. Hard to tell with it drifting. Out by the road it's about 18 inches but almost none on the road itself !Our front porch has about an inch and the back has 5-6 ! The house next door has about a foot on it's porch , just because the wind hits it different than ours ! It's up to 3 with a -13 windchill !
