Amazingly, it seems likely Houston will see snow Friday, the city’s earliest ever white stuff. Forecasters are still hedging their bets given all of the puzzle pieces that must fall into place for it to snow in Houston, but now say the most likely scenario is 2 to 4 inches of widespread snowfall beginning Friday afternoon. Some areas may get half a foot.23 degrees tomorrow night. Houses aren't insulated against cold weather, so there will be lots of busted pipes in attics and garages come Saturday morning. Plumbers, drywall repairers and insurance companies will be busy. And if the forecast comes true, I'll say the NWS did an amazing job of pegging this storm 5 days in advance.
Note to myself: Turn the water main off in the morning and get ready to kiss half my plants goodbye. Hope my orange trees make it.
