In Texas, we don't know how to handle cold weather

I consider anything below 60 degrees to be cold, so you can imagine my feelings when I left for work today and it was 22. And I'm fairly confident that many Texans share my sentiments.

As a testament to how poorly equipped we are for such weather, the entire city of Houston is experiencing rolling blackouts today. Do you know how big Houston is? This is a huge deal for us, and everyone is in a tizzy about it. I am personally outraged that I am at work. I mean come on, the power goes off at least once every hour. Is there really any point in me being here?

So amidst all this abnormal weather, I had to laugh when it was announced that Punxsutawney Phil saw his little groundhoggy shadow, signaling an early Spring.
I hope he's right!

P.S. I am such an old woman for having a blog post dedicated to weather.
P.P.S. I hear Keyboard Cat has a new video coming out very soon. You bet I'll be posting it when I see it!!

ROlling blackouts are completely inconvenient. The traffic signals being out were what ruined MY day, I mean seriously, being at major intersections and going one at a time? Bah!

(And yes it's cold, but we are lucky we don't have 4 feet of blowing snow to contend with).
