Finally it looks like the Euro might be catching on to the cold spell. Day 9 & 10 are looking good on the 0z Euro. On day 10 it has a 1049mb high near Montana with a big blast of cold air headed down the plains straight towards Texas.

But the 64,000 dollar question is...any moisture with it?

We had a tragedy at the house. We were under the tornado warned cell in Magnolia and our barn was destroyed and my boys new horse (Christmas present) was killed in the storm.

150 yards to the SW and our house would have taken the brunt of that wind.

Hard coming back in and telling your 7 and 4 year old their horse is dead 2 weeks after our 15 year old dog passed.

Thanks y’all! I got the chainsaw out making a path to get him removed. I’m just trying to figure out how, at this point, to drag him out of here without bringing anything to heavy back here.

It’s so wet that machinery will get stuck. Maybe Animal control has a way?
