Hard Freeze Watch for Houston/Drought Update

Wednesday will be very cold in the northern plains and western Great Lakes states will have highs in the single digits. Look for some snow from the norther Rockies through the central plains snd into the Midwest. Warmest weather will be in along the southern tier of states with highs in the 50s, 60s and 70s.

The National Weather Service has issued a Hard Freeze Watch effective from Thursday evening into Sunday morning. The watch means that there could be at least 2 consecutive hours of 25 or below temperatures. So, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, pets, plants, people and exposed pipes need to be protected. The only exception to the watch area is along the coast.

Houston, if you are thinking about snow...chances are very slim...with upper levels too warm when there will be precipitation. Once the Arctic air arrives, the air will dry rapidly.

Let's do it's very cold or hace mucho frío, pronounced AH-say MOO-cho FREE-oh. On Thursday into Sunday morning, we are going to be saying hace mucho frío.

Okay...we're back in the groove and now it's time to get going on those plans to get your little ones interested in other languages. My DVD series, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco is a perfect way to get started. And, you'll feel good about purchasing it, knowing that it has won awards from Dr. Toy and homeschool.com as a best educational product. You can find Volumes 1 or 2 at http://www.frankandpaco.com
, http://www.amazon.com, http://www.bn.com, http://www.bestbuy.com, or http://www.ebay.com/. Our ESL (English as a Second Language) version can be found at http://www.frankypaco.com.

I updated the drought and drought outlook figures at right. In Texas, the situation is vastly improved over what it was last summer and more improvement is expected. There are only a few places in Texas still dealing with severe drought.

Stay warm everybody!
