    Texas Blizzard

    I just saw a single snowflake. Time for a little panic buying at the grocery store. LOL

    I'm sure dozens of cars are in the ditch. And every egg, carton of milk, and loaf of bread within a hundred miles have been bought.

    Speaking of eggs, need to check the chicken pen. Hope they ain't frozen.

    Hasn't gotten above 30, here. Had a little sleet. I rigged up the well house heat lamp. Hard freeze (24 F) tonight here on the northern fringes of south Texas. I have been hoping to see a snow flake, but they have eluded me.

    I'm looking for every stitch of winter clothing I own to ride my ATV out to check the hog trap. Burrrrr.

    We're pretty much buried here too. Looks to be about one inch accumulation, and 15 or 18 degrees.

    I'll try... But look what I have to deal with... the snow below only took a half hour to come down and bury us like that... and it's still falling!
