With temperatures dropping into the possible single digits, there’s still good news. The good news, at least for now, is that we’re only seeing about 20% snow, sleet, or freezing rain in the Texarkana region Thursday afternoon. Let’s also hope that there won’t be any power outages like a few years ago.

Control people, pets, pipes and plants

Please remember to check on friends and neighbors, especially the elderly. Bring your pets inside. I know they have a fur coat but it’s still way too cold outside for any pet. Have heart and try to get them into the garage with at least a little safe heater and warm bedding.
