Texas under Snow and Ice

I used to work in Waco. But it’s a mess here too near Houston.

Texas is under snow and ice! And a lot of other places in the south that normally aren’t either. Electric outages all over. Rolling blackouts. Water isn’t being pumped to some homes.

I’m afraid my sprinkler system probably broke, despite trying to weatherproof it. And my kitchen sink pipes froze last night. So I’m hair drying it, trying to unfreeze it, hoping I don’t have a flood of water like I did in Oklahoma one time. And the worst? It was Christmas Day. I had to have a friend turn off the water for me because it was frozen and I couldn’t budge it, and when the plumbers came the next day, they found termite towers in the wall behind the plumbing they had to repair. Talk about costly!!!

Anyway, still frozen, still writing tons and rewriting tons and moving stuff around in White Wolf. It will be a mess for a while, but it’s getting better. I’m up to chapter 7-8 and those are mostly like I want them. 15 chapters to revise, rewrite, move around. 🙂 But it’s getting there!

Now if I can only unfreeze my kitchen pipe and hope I don’t have a crack in it!

Frozen rose. Flowers blooming before the deep freeze hit.

Stay safe and if you’re in the middle of this Polar Vortex–we haven’t had this kind of cold since 1985–stay warm the best you can!

  1. One of my dogs had to go out at 5:30 AM so I checked outside thermometer. 0.7 degrees on southside of house. Waco will report something more than that, but I’m sure you remember the outlying areas being a little colder. It is 9:30 AM now and still just 10 degrees. I am old, and this is the coldest I remember for Central Texas. My water pipes froze also.

  2. Oh, no, Tom! I’m so sorry. They did for me when I lived in Crawford too, once in the one bathroom and once in the kitchen. The problem is we just don’t have enough insulation for weather like this. I hope you’re staying warm!! Still working on the kitchen pipe. I was lucky when the ones froze in Crawford. No breaks in the line. And it didn’t take long for the water to start up again. But this time, nope.
