Apparently if you’re almost anyplace in the US, you’re getting blasted with super lows and in some places tons of white stuff. In Fort Worth our normal temps this time of year are pretty cold to moderate. Lows in the low 30s and highs maybe into the 50s. Usually we have the Fort Worth Stock Show the end of January into February when we’re known for frigid temps. Of course, this year no Stock Show, and usually we have two maybe three days in a row of those temps. Yes, yes. I understand some of you consider that bragging. 😊 Well, here’s what we’re looking at in Fort Worth for the next week or so, not counting the wind chill!
Back in December we had a heavy frost. Yes, this pic is just frost and not snow.
Also, in January, some parts of the area got snow (not us). ☹ But it was enough at my daughter’s ranch down southwest of Fort Worth for her family to build snow people.
In the meantime, my friend in New Hampshire has been looking at lots of snow. Thanks, Klaran Warner for this picture.
This pic is by my friend in Maine, Susan H. Vaughan, who writes Romantic Suspense.
And look at these two pics by Kenneth Hicks in NYC. If you don’t follow Kenneth on Instagram, you really should; his photos are amazing.
He and his wife write mysteries; you should check them out.
Those of you who live where these temps and the snow is common and lasts for months, don’t need this next pic. But for those of us in the more Southern parts of the country, we need these reminders.
Walking with Charley worked okay this morning, no breeze. I think we’ll be okay this evening, but I’m really not looking forward to the coming days.
How about you? Do you love the cold weather? What do you do when it’s really cold and icy or snowy outside? If it ices in Fort Worth, pretty much everything shuts down. The streets get treated, but still things work better if most of us are not out there sliding around. 😉 One beautiful snowy day when we lived in our old house, I went for a walk on our street by myself. On the slight incline, I went down hard. My thigh was bruised and sore for an entire year. Still, the snow was gorgeous, and I was happy.
Have you gotten your vaccination? We’re still waiting to hear. After the weather moderates next week, if we still haven’t heard, I’m going to the Tarrant County Health Department and camping out until someone can answer my questions. Love to hear from you.
