Thin Ice


Thin ice covered many ponds and swamps throughout Dallas County during the January Arctic Blast.

So, what you're seeing is the coldest of the cold that reinforced our opinion that we could NEVER survive a northern winter!

In fact, the stats are in, and the mean temperature from January 1-15 was 32.4 degrees F. That's a record, beating out another record-breaking cold spell in 1970.

I'm definitely glad the cold snap is over. Where's global warming when you need it?

Lovely shot! We set a record here for having 14 consecutive days of below freezing temps. The old record of 13 was set back in the 1960's.
