Houston is Iced Over…

Living in Houston, Texas usually affords us a very mild winter…The average high temperature for January is 62 and the low is 43.  We can expect to see temperatures that range from in the 30’s – 40’s  for about 3 weeks in early January.  Hard freezes are uncommon.  The coldest temperature recorded in Houston was 5 degrees on January 18, 1930.

So here we sit on January 7, 2014, with a low temperature of 24.  The pipes and plants have been wrapped and the pets are bundled into their cute doggie sweaters.   We are eating homemade chicken soup and sipping hot tea with honey all the while we are using up our propane at a record rate.

Stay warm!
