    Got a space heater, in case you need to heat a crawlspace to protect the pipes?
    A heating pad can be used like heat tape to thaw or protect pipes as well.

    You must be in the northern part of the state? I am around San Angelo and it is looking bad but not that bad on the forecast here...but bad enough I am now looking at a couple of weeks maybe around San Antonio and Corpus Christi before I head back west. In the meantime topping off the propane in the motorhome.

    I don't think we've ever even interacted on of the Monkeys of whom I really know nothing. Houston looks like an awfully big city for me...even Corpus is looking a bit scary. You know me, Medford is marginal. ;)

    Fortunately, our place (in SE NM, btw) is built on a slab. We have propane heater if needed as well as a couple of fireplaces and a couple of camp stoves for cooking. We went through something a little bit worse than this a couple or 3 years ago and did ok. Only problem we had was our sprinkler system valve let go. Sprinkler guy came by, turned off the valve and came back when it warmed up. This year, I"m going to turn off that valve myself tomorrow.

    Merry Christmas, all. :)

    Yeah, I don't live near the downtown area. I live near a small town named Magnolia. Houston is a rather large city. I prefer to stay out in the rural areas. I only go to town for work and some business.
