Keep Warm and Carry On


Everyone knows Texas is famous for warmer temperatures in winter, so when we were hit with the low 30s yesterday it did feel like we were trapped in an ice-cube. 

But after reading all the wind chill records and really low lows in other parts of the country, I had to end the pity party because we really aren’t experiencing even a fraction of what the rest of the US is with this Polar Vortex hit.

I hope you and your loved ones are staying warm and for your sake, here’s hoping the sun comes out soon.


How cold is it in your neck of the woods?

    That’s a beautiful penguin photo!

    It’s been COLD here the last few days – above freezing, but barely.

    I was supposed to get blood drawn this morning, but it’ll have to wait for tomorrow’s warmer weather (and rain)!

    Let’s just say, I cannot wait until summer!

    I think penguins are the only ones who would have been happy in the Polar Vortex. I like cold, but this has been a little crazy.

    Love the penguin photo! We were in the -20 range Sunday night through yesterday. The wind chill was in the -30 to -40 range. Crazy cold. We are slowly working our way back up. It’s 12 degrees today and we should hit the 30′s again this weekend.
