Texas is freezing

For most of the year , the weather in my home state is not known for it’s low temperatures . The weather is temperamental, yes . Volatile , of course. Maybe a little bipolar and definitely unpredictable but it doesn’t get unbearably cold or at least not often .The weather in Texas is always a roller coaster ride and there’s nothing to do but expect the unexpected when it comes down to it . The last two weeks have been unprecedented and one for the record books .

Today is supposed to get above freezing. It couldn’t come soon enough. I consider myself one of the lucky ones because I only went without power for a total of 36 hours. Unlike many of my neighbors, I still had water and so far , my pipes are still in good shape. Unlike some of my neighbors, I didn’t have to endure a house fire with no water pressure to put it out . Unlike some of my neighbors, I didn’t have small children . I also didn’t have underlying health problems that compounded the situation. I consider myself one of the lucky ones because I can write about it .

What I know I’ve learned and I hope that others have also is that it pays to be prepared. You can’t control the elements and you can’t control what anyone but yourself does . I’m going to give myself the best chance in a disaster that I possibly can .

Prayers to all still suffering and struggling due to this situation . The weather may be clearing out but now the clean up begins . 2021 can calm down now , we already need a break .

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.
