I know it's been beautiful and cold weather is probably not in your immediate thoughts. Even so, freeze season starts today (Dec 10) and runs through February 20th. Make sure you stock up on canned goods, have a generator and a good PLANT evacuation plan ready. This year, the Hernandez Weather Service (HWS) is predicting 2 named cold waves with one expected to be a category 2 freeze event. Remember, as recently as December 2010 it was a cold month followed by a very warm January and February 2011. Nothing says this winter won't do the complete opposite. Be ready for whatever mother nature throws at you this "lovely" winter season.
