Weekly Updated blog

Hello from Texas. I live in Ricmhond, TX, 30 miles SW of Houston. Only here can we have 27 degrees at night and 63 the next day. That is what happened here last week. Thursday night not only did it drop to 27 but we had rain, ice, and sleet(some close by had a little snow). We don't know how to handle this, therefore driving was not recommended. Schools and a lot of offices were closed on Friday. I did not go to work as I have 27 miles of freeway which had ice and some overpasses were closed. I did get a lot of stitching one. Friday night was another cold night with a little ice and guess what, Saturday afternoon, the sun came out and it got to 63. It was a pretty day as well as today. We are due another round of cold, Tues, Wed, and Thurs. This only happens every few years for us. Hope all of you in the northern areas that have had a lot of snow and real cold weather are ok. Thinking of you. Here are my progress pictures for the week.
