Well, today we awoke to freezing temperatures, and this weekend it’s supposed to be 76 degrees. Only in Texas! When we’re enjoying particularly springlike weather in the middle of January, I always call my parents, who live in the Pacific Northwest, to gloat a bit. This is the reason I moved to Texas – the constant sunshine and nice temperatures in winter.
However, who can forget last year during the Superbowl? I was housebound for several days, unable to navigate the icy parking lot in order to leave my apartment. And that kind of weather could easily be repeated. So don’t let these warm days fool you. If you’re wondering about how to prepare for those nasty temperatures, you’ll probably want to attend our home winterization workshop presented by Home Depot. They’ll be presenting in the Library Community Room this Saturday, January 21st at 10:00 am, 11:00 am, and 12:00 pm. This is a free workshop, and they’ll be teaching us how to conduct a heat loss audit and perform simple door and window maintenance to prevent heat loss.
