It is super cold for a Texas winter, windhill close to zero. I heard on the radio today that the last time it was this cold in Austin was in 1951, and I suddenly remembered stories from my childhood. That was the year I turned one and my family moved from Austin to California during the winter. Mama always talked about how cold it was during that move, and how when it was xlose to zero, her hand stuck to the icy metal door handle on the old blue Packard. It's odd how bits and pieces of old stories come back unsummoned.

It is odd and wonderful how these memories come back, Victoria. The weather has been treacherous in so many states that it really is scary. I have friends traveling through Texas going to Tennessee and they were delayed two days there because of the dangerous traveling conditions. Glad you are warm and safe.
