Southern Winter

By Janelle Lear

Usually this time of year in the Houston area we are cleaning up fallen leaves and preparing for spring planting. Not this year - we have had two one-week spells of sub-freezing temps and no one wants to be outside longer than absolutely necessary. Water in animal troughs is frozen, even inside their barns/shelters. We're digging out clothing not worn in probably several years! I live 40 miles NW of Houston and we are expecting a couple inches of snow (winter precipitation per the weather channel). No accumulation but don't talk to be about global 'warming.' Actually the change is refreshing. :-)
