The Great White Friday North Texas Ice Storm Has Arrived With A Vengeance
On a normal day at this point in time I would be up close and personal with that cool pool.
But today that cool pool is way too cool.
As in the predicted Ice Storm has stormed in with a White Vengeance.
Icicles formed over night on various surfaces. Frozen water pellets pummel relentlessly, making a tinkling noise as they make earth contact.
The outer world at my location, according to my computer based temperature monitoring device, is currently frozen to 26 degrees.
I have not lost power.
But, apparently, over 100,000 in North Texas are currently in shiver mode without electricity.
It just occurred to me I should make a big pot of coffee for backup purposes, kept in the refrigerator, for emergency iced coffee medication if the power goes out for an extended time.
I really don't want to suffer caffeine withdrawal in addition to Ice Storm misery.
