Those of you who live up north

can feel entitled to roll your eyes.  I just want to point out that it does, indeed, get cold in Texas. 

Everyone locally was circulating pictures of the local cable news weather screen last night:

wind chill

In the interest of truth, I will add that I looked up that temp and that wind speed on a NOAA chart and came out with –31 rather than the pictured –52.  I can also tell you that the snow is not deep, except where it has drifted, and it is very dry snow, so that monthly precipitation will not increase very much.  I’m sitting by the fire knitting wool socks, just in case you were wondering.
