I'm staying at home today. There is ice on the streets everywhere, so I don't want to break my legs or neck.

It looks like we are getting Toms weather. It doesn't look like it'll get much above freezing for a whole week!

Geez, it's getting worse.  For Monday they are forecasting a high of 16F and a low of -2F here in Central Texas.  The lowest I've ever seen here was 8F in the 1980s.  I'll have the heat on full blast and also a continuous fire in the fireplace.  It won't get above freezing for 3 days.  I know some of you see this all the time, but not us, not here.  See you on the other side, I hope!

Icarus

Serious stuff going on in Texas Ecurb.  Todays' news reported numerous deaths caused by a colossal highway crash near Dallas- Ft. Worth.  Ice sheets of near half inch thick on I 35.   

This is sure to persuade more people that global warming is a deep state hoax.

Hot and humid today. Ugh.

Could I get some of your weather? It is far too cold here. I had a walk to our bakery this morning (approx. 1km walk) and even though I wore thick, warm gloves, my hands were frozen.

I would gladly trade. For a little while.  ;D

We've been below freezing for many days and today and tomorrow it's not supposed to get out of the single digits. I have never seen that happen in my life. The lowest high I have ever seen was 15 or so.

I'm so glad, though. It has been an absurdly warm winter. We were rarely even hitting freezing for overnight lows and I think the lowest we had seen was 27 degrees. Thank goodness for this cold spell. The bugs were going to be terrible this year, but this has certainly hindered that from happening now.

Also it's snowing. As to whether or not we end up with the highest amounts of snow accumulation over the next few days in ten years is left to be seen, but it is certainly looking possible, likely even.  :)
