Here in west Texas all the 3rd party service companies like casing crews, cementers, fuel delivery trucks are not running because of the ice on the roads and forecast to get more in the next day or two.  I'm not a big fan of cold weather, I just couldn't imagine 0 temps for 2 months.  Can't wait for spring, summer and fall.

You guys from Texas are just wimpy :biggrin:

I hate winter and hate snow as much as anyone. But even in ohio I remember not seeing above 20 degrees for weeks at a time with occasional lows in the singles. That was an average winter for us. Usually a few feet of snow fall over each month.

Now that is tame for some folks.

Last year was horrible for us. I heard on the news by this time last year we already had 36" of snow fall. So far this year we have had zero!

You know its cold when you have to plug your vehicle in even when its parked in the non heated non insulated garage. You open the door to go outside and the air turns white around you from the warm air of the house leaving. The worst is that your nervous to go take a leak outside for fear of you know what getting frostbite. If your fearful of that happening then you know its cold out. LOL

Actually I'm not from Texas, but from Oklahoma.  biggrin Texans may be wimpy, Okies are not.  So what can you add to this.  You know its cold when:  You go outside to check your thermometer and all you find is a note  "Gone south for the Winter".  You see your dog stuck to a tree with his leg hiked. etc.  Anyway stay warm.

You guys have all that wind. At least that's what I learned from that song. I think it sweeps down the plains

We started the day raining at 53, stopped raining at 11am and the temps started dropping.
Wind picked up and now it's down to 35. We took advantage of the lack of falling moisture to get some wood split and stacked and a load of dry stuff up to the house.
