febiceIn north Texas, we have been inundated with rain over the last few days and last night a cold front came through which dropped to temperatures in to the 30’s. At my house, we had 5″ of rain over the last two days but the ground was so warm nothing froze. But to the west at the Lookout  Ranch on Chalk Mountain (which is about 600′ higher in elevation than my place) everything above the ground formed with ice. Although quite beautiful, the icing caused a lot of tree limb loss and frozen gate openings. The forecast is for off an on rain through Saturday but no more icing. The scene above is at the ranch looking to the north toward Bluff Dale and Tolar. Cold and dreary!
