Damn Bill, that's cold as hell. Just texted my buddy in Brenham to see what his plans are for the chill.

Wish you could get here to hang with us by the pool for a few days til it passes.

Calling for a snow storm around here. No problem for me and my wife as we are both retired and don't have to go anywhere just stay home a cuddle.

Brenham, home of the world's best ice cream, Blue Bell, is northwest of Houston, so they're a bit more familiar with freezing weather and ice. I'm actually on the south east side, headed toward Galveston. We aren't used to this. We're coastal people!

Should write your congressman. See if he can speed up that global warming thing. Or at least find out what's the delay because we were all supposed to die from heat more than 10 years ago.

So stay home, bundle up and venture out after the ice melts.

Less chance of dying that way

Yup, and a big bonus that the Blue Bell family are really good people.

I'm familiar with the area between Houston and Austin. Been going to Brenham for 20+ years to see our largest client who has become like family over the years. Also have a few childhood pals living in Houston area.

Tried to stop in and see Snik last trip out a year or so ago but time didn't permit.

Next time I'm in town I'll shoot you a PM to see if you're up for a cold one.

Stay warm until this sheit passes.

Hating this cold weather, don’t care if that makes me a *****. Supposed to break ground on a commercial “destination” build across the street from my old POS property. Already got a call asking if I was taking cash offers... “No”. But God willing, this is my last winter freezing my ass off.

I'm watching the news. Half the state's wind power is off line, because.....the windmill blades are frozen. LOL! So much for green power being our future. When we need it most, green energy isn't available. I'd imagine snow on solar panels doesn't work out well, either. Meanwhile, reliable, clean burning natural gas is keeping us from freezing to death.

FIL has bunch of solar panels and they lose capacity when cold out, quit a bit I guess.
Snow and ice definitely cuts way down also IIRC.

10 car pileup on I-45S, maybe 10 miles from the house.... on a road I drove on 5 hours ago to get home. I guess I made it home in time. Just checked, driveway is staring to ice over and the windshield on my truck is iced over.


Shit's gettin' real, y'all.

9 degrees at 9p tonight. Wind chill well below zero as wind has blown all day at 20-30mph. Heavy snow with visibility often down to block or two.
Forecast tomorrow is wind chill below zero most of the day. Real temp around zero Tuesday AM with heavy snow forecast again Tuesday night/Wednesday AM.
May get above freezing by Friday afternoon.
At least no freezing rain but south of DFW hit pretty hard. Watch out Bill.... headed for Houston with a vengeance. Good luck.

Power has gone of 4 times in the last 10 minutes. Oops, make that 5.

Now Hot-spotting from my phone. Cable is down and that means no internet.

Ice sucks. Minus 15 here right now, which actually is ok because it's just too cold to cause problems. Cranked the 22kw generator yesterday to make sure it still would start if needed. I just recently retired, so we can just stay in if we need to. I plowed the driveway and the path to the main road today. It's much easier if you don't have a deadline

If only our employers agreed with you. They have to have the work done and you better be there or else!
