Weather Alert - Katy/Cypress/Houston

Weather Alert - Katy/Cypress/Houston

 

The whole Houston area is under a weather freeze alert as temperatures are dropping. In some areas such as Cypress it is already 32 degrees and falling. The problem is complicated as there is some rain coming down and a courier driver  who just came to our office said the roads are icing up. Live to play another day and get home safely while it is still daylight outside. It is being predicted tonight lows will be in the low to middle 20’s depending on where you live.

 

I know my friends and colleagues in cold weather areas are probably laughing right now but this whole area is not use to or prepared for this type of weather.  Homes in this area are certainly not built to withstand cold weather. There is no foul weather road equipment to use on the roads!  Drivers here have absolutely no clue how to drive in rain let alone freezing rain! I am not trying to insult anyone anyone but just stating a fact. Slow down and don’t slam on your brakes.

 

Remember to protect your pipes in the attic and outside your home. Please do not let your pets stay outside the rest of today or tonight. Turn off your sprinkler system and make sure the system is protected from the weather. Sprinkler system should have been shut down in early November. ( I have a neighbor who still runs his on a regular basis. Try to stay off the roads especially tonight and be careful.

I can identify with this alert. We get a little bad weather and the grocery stores sell out of bread and milk.

So many areas of the country seem forecast for extreme weather this weekend.  Sacramento is one of them!

Take care on those icy walkways and streets. We are expecting snow in Maryland.

That is not a normal occurence that far south and I hoper everyone is prepared for it. I was coming into Houston for my cancer check up next week but postponed it until March. Sounds like I did the right thing.

When you aren't use to freezing roads it is difficult. People don't realize how quickly you can lose control of your vehicle. 

Stay inside and stay safe. I hope it isn't as bad as what's being predicted. 

We are currently at 7 degrees and temperatures are still falling. 

PS....I wrote this post that I think you and Yolanda should read. I would love your opinion on it.

That doesn't sound fun at all, my area wouldn't be prepared for something like that either.  I hope that you are staying safe and warm!

Thank you for your comments and concern. We made it through the weekend bad weather. Friday night/ Saturday moring the actually temp was 22 or 23 in Katy ansd wind chill made it a lot colder. This is adifficult for folks here to handle. I did see some ice but lucky for us the rain stopped and roads were OK.

After all of our snow, now we are getting rain which is making the slushy roads even worse. I plan to leave before the temperatures start dropping at the end of the day. I don't want to take my chances after the roads have turned into a sheet of ice.
