It COLD out there!

This is what has to say:
“Temperatures dipped to a record-smashing 15º at ABIA, and 18º at Camp Mabry — the coldest since Feb., 2011. We saw rural valley thermometers on the LCRA network as cold as 1º in NW San Saba County.”

We saw a low of 14 last night here at the house. So far the only thing I know that appears frozen is the  rain water. That is not flowing at the moment. It could be the pump, but I’m going to let the day warm up a bit before I go out and check it. 

Well the water did finally begin to run from the rain water. But we never got as warm as they said we would. They said 37, we got to 35. Its still cold out there. Its now 7 PM and already its down to 29.

It was so cold I had to go into the garage to put some stuff away. DH had left the garage door open and it was cold. It was so cold when I opened the door to the garage I couldn’t breathe. At least all I was doing was dropping off empty boxes. So I dropped off the boxes in the garage, walked back into the house and closed the door. Then I could breathe again. Such is cold weather asthma.

Tomorrow we should climb up to 42 with a low of 33. Ironically Friday is forecast to be 52, Saturday 69, and Sunday 70.  Welcome to Texas winter.
