This is NOT normal...

Just a quick post about this crazy weather!  There is an old saying here in Texas that goes something like this: "If you don't like the weather, just wait a day or so and it will change."  Well, I am waiting and it ain't changing!
We have had bitterly cold temperatures for the past 2 days. On Saturday, it was warm and sunny with a balmy breeze.  Ron and I sat on the deck in the swing enjoying the sound of birds, the gurgle of the stream behind the house, and the sunshine warming our backs.  By Sunday night the temperatures dropped drastically.
Monday morning we woke to below zero temps (with the wind chill of course) and today Central Texas suffered rolling blackouts because the power companies just aren't equipped to deal with the unusual demands for electricity to heat homes.
Luckily, we don't have any snow, it isn't raining now, and the roads are nice and clear. Unfortunately, we had an appointment to get buddy a bath & haircut.  Needless to say, he is hoping that tomorrow brings warm weather again.

Come North, it's not so bad here, only 22 degrees when I came to work and it should be in the 30's later today
