It's -3 In Houston....
Every few years Houston actually experiences winter weather with snow, ice, freezing rain and below freezing temps. After we had a warmer than normal winter of 2016-17, I just had a feeling we were going to get some serious cold weather in H-town this year
The temperature was 52 degrees (11 C) at midnight but as the arctic blast settled over the Houston area, the temperature quickly plunged to 29 degrees (-2 C) by 4 AM CST as the light rain, sleet and snow wintry mix moved in early Tuesday morning.
While the rest of y'all around the country may be laughing about us being shut down because of the icy weather, we've already lost two lives so far because of this arctic blast. A homeless person died on Houston's southeast side behind a dumpster due to hypothermia along with one fatal car accident in Montgomery County.
And the arctic air and hard freeze is going to stick around for the next fourteen hours along with a wind chill in the single digits ..
And as long as I have heat and power, I'm good.
