Two Main Freezes/Special Softball League/Fish Update

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! We're walking Sarah to school this a.m. and it is windy and cold and I'm thinking about those poor folks in North Dakota and Minnesota who were below zero. Ooohhhh...I'm shivering just thinking about it!

Well it is just going to be downright bitterly cold in North Dakota and Minnesota with highs Wednesday in the negative single digits--that's the highs!!! It will also very cold in the northeast, the Ohio Valley and midwest. The southern tier of states will be in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. There will be snow from the northern Rockies through the northern plains, the Ohio Valley, the Great Lakes and northern New England.

Houston, this is the coldest night yet this year (winter season). Outlying areas will have 4 to 9 hour of freezing temperatures. For places like Conroe, it will be about 12 hours. Houston metro will have 1 to 3 freezing hours. So, cover up the tender plants and make sure the pets are nice and warm. This is NOT pipe freezing weather. Always, however, be aware of exposed pipes/valves on sprinkler systems.

Another shot of cold air arrives in Houston early Thursday. Be sure to take the same precautions Thursday evening. And Thursday daytime will stay in the 40s most of the day. A shower is possible Sunday but rain chances are low.

Let's do the verb protect or proteger, pronounced pro-tay-GAIR. It is important proteger plants and pets during freezing weather.

Now suppose you moved to Ecuador and lived in the Andes...wouldn't it be useful to speak Spanish and ask questions about how to proteger your plants? What if your kids end up doing business in Ecuador or some other Spanish speaking country? Help your kids get a headstart...order our award winning DVD from our web site www.frankandpaco.com/.

First of all, the fish, ICarly and Sam and doing just great! They are more like swimming pigs...you should see them eat...much different from the last fish. And they eat up every little scrap...there is nothing left.

Today I signed Sarah up for a special softball team called The Dream League. This is for disabled children. My friend Cindy Villarreal told me about it and her daughter is one of the star players. The games begin in March. And here is the part I love--no practices!!! Please check it out--they need volunteers and other support. And also send this on to anyone you know who might be interested.


I can't wait to see Sarah play!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
