Texas on Ice, Part I

For nearly forty-eight hours now, the temperature has not exceeded 32° here in Pipe Creek. We woke up this morning to a very wintery looking South Texas landscape. It has been raining and sleeting off and on for over a day and everything around is frozen. On my car, there is more than a full centimeter of ice covering the entire body. I can’t even open the doors! Brrrr!! Below are some shots from this morning of our winter wonder land.
