The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is urging Texans to prepare for an arctic cold front impacting parts of Texas through the weekend. Forecasts indicate the possibility of below freezing temperatures, light snow, sleet and freezing rain across a large portion of the state.
“As the latest cold front moves across much of the state, DPS is advising Texans to prepare for freezing temperatures and winter precipitation. Light snow, freezing rain and sleet in some areas could create hazardous driving conditions,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “Texans should closely monitor the weather conditions in their area and use extra caution if they are driving in affected regions.”
In preparation for possible winter weather, the Texas State Operations Center – in coordination with Texas Highway Patrol and several state agencies, including the Texas Department of Transportation, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas A&M Forest Service, and Texas Military Forces – will continue to monitor weather conditions and maintain close contact with National Weather Service local forecast offices across the state.
DPS offers the following tips for staying safe during this weather event:
When I was pregnant with my little girl, I often wondered what I would be like as a Mommy. I felt fairly confident that I could discipline my child, answer the tough questions that might come my way and still let my angel know that we loved her with all our heart. I thought that I was
adult enough, that I had seen a lot in my life to prepare me for having a child. Don’t get me wrong. I was nervous, but I still felt fairly positive that I could handle being a Mom. Four years later, my husband, Aaron and I, have a beautiful, intelligent, witty, curious, with a small touch of her Mommy’s OCD, little girl who has made us realize that we didn’t know as much as we thought we did. This is our life!
There are times that I have been told, I could argue with a fence post. I feel that given the opportunity, I can give a good argument on why something should be a certain way. I think that I am capable of a persuasive argument with another person. That’s not really the case when you have a 4 year old.
A couple of nights ago, I put Kiera in the bathtub. While she was in the tub, I broached the subject of changing out her Santa earrings for some other earrings. It went something like this:I began my opening argument. “Kiera, it’s time to change your earrings. Christmas is over, honey.”
