Well, we seem to have one bad storm each winter, and we definitely had it last week. I haven't left the house in days. However, the thaw did finally set it Friday and by the end of yesterday, the roads seem to be safe enough. Which is a good thing as I need to make a trip to the grocery before the next round of predicted storms tonight and Wednesday.
Texas had a round of rolling blackouts during the very cold weather (single digits, with below zero wind chills--brrrr!) We obviously aren't set up for this severe winter weather. Fortunately, people had the good sense to stay home and off the streets. Usually, it seems people try to ignore the weather--Texans just aren't cold weather people and pick ups (the vehicle of choice) isn't the best vehicle for driving on ice. But many seemed to have learned their lesson with the Christmas Eve blizzard last year that left many people stranded on the roads for many hours.
But because of the bad weather, several events were cancelled. One of those was the Friends of Lake Arrowhead State Park. That meeting for February has been cancelled. The next meeting will be March 3, 7 PM in the Dining Hall at Lake Arrowhead State Park. Bring your dues ($10 per person or $15 per family)--we are official with the state and are working on the 501(c)(3) designation. Hope to see you there.
