Houston breaking a 122 year temperature record. Been out playing in the snow and doing important stuff too, it’s already melted some and refreezing. Even this morning still didn’t need the 4x, but it they were locked in just in case.
I am in the upper midwest, my wife's family is down around mcallen. TX.
Funny thing is they visited a week ago. Experienced about an inch of snow or more every day for a few days. Temps swinging down to -5 at night.
They were so happy to get back home to highs in the 20s LOL.
Still I will take the cold and -10 over hurricanes in Texas. Power out for days, everything flooded, can't flush your toilet. Smell of nasty stale standing water. Heat and humidity with no AC all your food spoils.
You can prepare for cold weather and snow, but you can't prepare for having to crap in plastic bags and not getting showers.
yes, man has rightly feared flood over fire'n others as it digs up the earth, strips it, etc. Still - can't say I'm not relieves to live in tornado country, where hurricane is late summer - fall. I've dealt w/the latter 650 mi out to sea ina 27 ft sloop.
"...they were locked in just in case..."
BTW: careful w/that 4WD 'on' in the ice. It creates worse driving than "un locked'.
