    Too Cold For Me

    The extreme cold blanketing the U.S. is wrecking havoc, especially in the south where we are not prepared to deal with such extremely cold temperatures. Once again we have lucked out. No power outage other than a 30 minute rolling blackout. No frozen pipes. Step Son lives in Katy, TX., a...
