I’d hope to get a nicely detailed post with lots of images to discuss, as much as a regular citizen w/out much input or info can do, how this month’s winter storm compares to last year’s ( literally ) deadly ice freeze, and I will, but it looks to be for tomorrow ( Monday ) now.
Our car battery seems to be recovering nicely; let’s hope it holds. And our bolstered cable connections are ticking along nicely.
But – just as I was nodding off last night ( Saturday ) I noticed an alert that we here in Austin are now in a boil-water notice for the next few days. Lots of reassurances it had nothing to do with the lingering winter storm weather, but I don’t know. We’re kinda gun-shy now ’bout a lot of things, lol!
At least we were stocked up fairly well with water ’cause of anticipating / preparing for the worst ala last year’s winter storm 🙏
Tomorrow’s post should feature a 5-6 day temperature range for a comparison look at both this and last year’s temperature ranges and durations and will feature Austin of course, but also Houston, Galveston, Brownsville, and San Antonio. I’m sure there’s some more or less dramatic differences for further east and west, but not including ( I believe ) Beaumont or El Paso, who happen to think it’s good to instead be part of the US power grid system 😊
Til then, I’m working on that larger post, uploading data shot pics, tagging the images in my media folder here on WordPress, and – happy to say – hoping to take a walk outdoors with Sheila this afternoon ❤️
Stay warm everyone, or maybe more accurately, more comfortable! 💕
ps – here’s an image of a tiny section of a 50 mile backup in the Texas Hill Country couple days ago due to ice / road conditions —
