Waiting on Weather…
People joke that the slightest dusting of ice or thought of snow will bring the city of Houston to shut down. And, they would be partially correct.
Currently (Sunday evening) it is 31 degrees and they say we are getting light snow showers. (I’m still looking for them) Tonight (Sunday), we might get snow somewhere around 2 A.M.
We don’t get much snow in Houston...in fact growing up here, I could count on one hand the number of times we had snow. And, the snow we got was so light that there was barely enough to build a decent snowman.
We have been checking our hummingbird feeder all day to make sure that the nectar and feeder holes haven’t frozen. We are doing our best to keep the birds fed.
Yesterday I made a quick trip to the store for chili mix and could not find any. I have never seen the meat department so depleted...even prior to a hurricane or the beginning of the pandemic.
In Houston, our freeways ice over before most of the roadways, and our reputation is that we don’t know how to drive in it. (they’re probably right)
My nephew/ police officer will have to stay overnight at his HQ because they’re concerned that the next shift will not be able to get into the city.
So now, here we sit, fingers crossed that the power doesn’t go out and that our pipes don’t burst.
I’m setting an alarm so I won’t miss the snow that’s supposed to arrive around 2 A.m.
I’ll keep you posted!!
