We don’t see this much in Houston —
The camellias were brave in the face of ice.
The pansies were sunny despite the freezing temps.
The aloe vera has seen better days.
A few icicles clung to the pine tree.
Beads of ice dotted the other pine.
The lime tree is probably wishing it had a coat — not a coat of ice.
The windshield was covered, too.
School is out, the kids are thrilled, and we’re awaiting the thaw.
When will this cold ever end?! Oh yeah, tommorrow. It’ll be in the 60s. Texas!
What’s that stuff on the ground? I haven’t seen grass since early December. After yesterday’s morning temp of -16, today feels downright balmy in Minnesota at +30. Our high on Monday is supposed to be -11. Come up to Minnesota and I’ll show you ICE.
