Cold Snap!

It’s cold here in Texas . Like really cold . A cold I’m not used to nor would I ever see myself getting used to . Unlike many people in my home state , I have electricity. For now . After being without it for over 24 hours, I’m preparing for when it goes out again .

A few days ago when
My tundra of my yard

Say a prayer for us in Texas . We aren’t ok . In the midst of a historic winter event , we are dangerously close to falling over a precipice . We can’t even look to the forecast for a glimmer of hope because that’s when the real power of Mother Nature shows it’s teeth . The total damage done by the last weeks of extreme cold , snow and ice won’t be realized until it all finally starts to thaw.

The Frozen Lake

Today the forecasted high is a toasty 27 degrees which sounds like heaven after waking up to a wind chill of -18 two mornings ago. It’s all about perspective and on any other day , I would have complained at the 27 degrees and thought it was unbearable. Not today . While I don’t relish it, the blinding light off the snow shocks me into reality . The reality of this moment .

Although freezing , I am safe with my loved ones or at least most of them .My daughters are safe at their homes and I am relieved by that . Tomorrow’s another day . Maybe the sun will come up ,tomorrow.

And like a celebrity, I'm just like everyone else... I hope my readers will find my blog relatable to the idiosyncrasies , craziness and flaws that we all have. If you are perfect, I'm sorry and congratulations .This might not be the feeble attempt at a blog for you .PLEASE email me and give me your secret. It will save me a lot writing . I just read a piece about how my authors “ about me “page is probably boring everyone to death. I have always had a lot to say but my first claim to fame was in Eighth grade when one of my teachers read a story I had written to the class. I don’t remember what exactly it was about but the first sentence was “Coma. Unconscious. “. You see where I am going with this. My classmates were in awe. I was an instant star and most likely to write a book . And yet , here I am : boring you to death without a best seller . I need to change that.
