Cabin Fever: #IceMageddon #IceApocalypse 2013

CABIN FEVER: It has officially set in y'all. If this turns out to be like the winter of 2010 I might lose my mind. Winter 2010 we expected an ice day that turned into like a week. Here in Texas, especially North Texas we are not equipped for these things. In 2010 everything was shut down for like a week. We were all banned to our houses and what made it worse was no one was prepared. I remember sittin' on the pot and realizin' we were out of toilet paper among other things.

It hasn't even been 24 hours of this nonsense and I'm already stir crazy. I should count my blessin' cause I have power and heat. I hear over 300,00 people are without it. A good much of my town is without power and they all have fallen trees in their yard. We got notta thing but lots of ice near our ice. The longhorn field in front of my house, pic two, has quite a few trees down. I talked to Bestfran Numero Uno and she has no heat and power. Not only is she going crazy but she is so cold. Y'all we might not even get above freezin' by Monday. I told her if she felt brave enough to drive tomorrow come out and we will keep her warm with lots of gumbo. My house is closer than her Momma's.

Seriously, y'all, just Google pics and video and you will see this nonsense. Whole highways are shutdown. We don't play. Highway 35 headed out to the Texas- Oklahoma has been shutdown for the night and I saw via a Facebook post that they are sending out the National Guard to rescue stuck people along a 12 mile backup. Why are people out in this. AHH, get to your houses and stay. But I am tried of the news interrupting everything and yellin' at me to stay in my house. Clearly I can see this. And the ones who can't see it are either out in it or don't have power.

Y'all stay safe and warm. Also, don't forget about the 12 days of Christmas link-up starting Monday. If you live in Texas you have no excuse cause your trapped in like me. Start writin' them now.

  1. Oh man--I was hearing about how bad it is down south right now. I'm sure hoping all the ice melts soon--we had plenty of snow up here in the north but we have to drive to Texas for Christmas!

  2. We live way north and were without power for an hour and a half Friday night. Me two teenagers and a 60 pound boxer curled up in my bed until it came back on! The town we live in became a Red Cross evacuation center for the hundreds stranded on I35 last night. I am so thankful for a warm house, warm clothes, and emergency personnel and electrical linemen!

    1. As am I. I think of the homeless and those on the streets and it makes me sad. My mom was just telling me about people taking shelter at a church near I35. Glad people were able to help. Stay safe and warm.

  10. I remember the Ice Storm of 2011 when everything was shutdown and the ice sheets were falling off of Cowboys Stadium! This year, we're loving it. We went sledding at a local park with our pups and were sliding down the street.

  11. Great photos .... I've been a lazy bum during Icemageddon 2013 and have no regrets! I'm staying calm, cool, collected, rested, and relaxed hoping that Baby Kamden doesn't decide he wants to be born during this awful weather because Mom and Dad do NOT want to get out on the roads!!!!!!!

  12. Those pics are pretty cool...the tree one is my fave. Sucks to have so much ice but so little snow. I really need to send you pics from the blizzard the year we got married.

  13. It is pretty cold! Our side roads are so bad that I watched people get stuck on our corner yesterday. Suppose to get more now and having seen anymore. Just to cold for it to melt. Stuck in like this I have been writing and cooking too! More in the morning. Be safe and tell your friend to go somewhere with power until her's is restored. It's too cold to be without heat.

    1. And it is. Her power finally came back on. Thanks goodness. Some of our roads cleared a bit and we headed to church. Took a while to get there though. But now were headed home to stay till the morning. Every bridge and overpass we drove over I was praying like crazy. Y'all stay safe and warm.
