    I feel your pain......

    This Texas boy's nipples are about to fall off. It's supposed to get down to 18 degrees by tomorrow night. I'm worried about my well freezing like it did last year, I'm worried about my horse, I'm worried about my cactus in front of my house that barely survived last year's hard freeze.

    Snow would be cool though. I don't think we're going to get any of that.

    Spent a winter in Corsicana TX back in the early 1980s - they had a cold snap that was a record low temp. The plumbing froze up in 4 out of 5 houses in town, because all the plumbing was exposed PVC. Them folks never even dreamed of pipes freezing!

    Everything would break and fall off a Texacan...if it got 20 below down there.

    We get that and as low as 40 + below up here....but luckly it don't stay that way too long. Wind chill factor...

    I remember a few years back, it got so cold that the roads iced over in Houston. They had to shut the whole city down! I knew more than one displaced Yankee that was just shaking his head at our Texan inability to deal with winter weather.

    But then again, I laugh everytime I hear about a "heat wave" up East, where them Yankees are really suffering from temps in the mid 90s.

    This is Ms Beast to lazy to change the name!

    It sounds as if you guys in the south are getting the winter weather we get. It isn't bad weather even, when you get way below zero and the big wind chills then it is cold! It has been pretty much in the low single digits here lately, not counting the wind. I can't complain about snow, we haven't got anything here yet, it is kinda nice for a change not having to shovel everyday. I am sure it will come, we never get away from it.......it is just late arriving!
