We're in the double digits cold. Wind chills of -40 and colder.

Maybe that's why we didn't get any rain.

We're going to get some kind of record data in a few nights on the weather.Local weatherman said it's been decades since it was 5 degrees in Abilene.So I figure they are searching the record books.

Now they are talking about 1 degree Tuesday morning.

Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

my guess is a whole bunch will - especially irrigation and livestock lines that aren't deep enough;

If it ever froze hard here. it would take weeks to fix water lines. They are above ground. I still have the a/c on!  :)

Right now, rain, thunder, lighting, and a wind chill of 22į. The roads will ice over if the cold and rain keep up. The city trucks will be spraying salt water brine on over passes. (use of alternate routes are wisely suggested)

Forecast here in SE TX for Monday night is 16F - not a record, but not far off. Wow! Normal low Dec-Feb is mid 40's and the low lately has been running 55-60. Can't remember the last time I saw this. My concern is water lines, as homes here aren't really built for that cold.
Come and take it.

I'll gladly take a 30-40 degree temp drop! 86 with a heat index of 90F here today! Real close to the all time record high for the month! Yea, I had to mow grass today.

All of them.Already having trouble watering cows.Got down to 20 last night and I haven't seen more than 27 degrees on my truck thermometer all day.Rigging up some drop lights with heat bulbs and going to put them by faucets then cover them up with empty lick tubs.Maybe keep them from bursting.

Feel for you. Watering livestock in the winter is always a project. It would be bad if you werenít equipped for cold weather. Hoping for the best for you

I got a call this morning at 5:30 am, guy's sewer pump out had buggered up and froze up, and he needed a track hoe to dig it out, to put a new one in. When I pulled into his yard with the Kenworth, the truck said it was -41C and with the windchill was in the -50's

The intake in our septic tanks has been freezing, I put a floating stock tank heater in the septic tank and when the water lever come up over the pipe it thaws it out.
