DFW Ice Storm 2013
Happy Monday Folks! Things are s l o w l y starting to return to normal here in North Texas. The DFW area has basically been closed since Friday. And by closed, I mean...literally. CLOSED. Everything from roads, to schools, to the post have been closed. The grocery stores even ran out of food!
Some folks are braving the still icy conditions this morning and heading into work. Luckily, I'm able to work from home. And thank God for that! It's treacherous out there! Things should finally start to thaw out during the day today...but, they are expected to refreeze again tonight. However, later in the week, we should be back in the 40°'s + 50°'s again. So, that's promising.
Now, I've never seen anything like this, and I'm a northerner! It has truly been quite the event. Everything was covered in a thick layer of ice. In fact, my husband was able to ice skate on all of the surrounding roads. We even made a make shift sled out of a plastic tote. He pulled me and the pups around on Saturday. Needless to say, it was a lot of fun. We were fortunate and did not loose electricity. I was grateful for that! There are a lot of down trees in the area, as well as the dangers of falling ice. Here's to everyone staying safe and things returning to normal! -Ruth-
