This is even more different. 02-24-21 UPDATE.

It’s now 66 degrees in Terrell, TX, heading for a high of 70 today. That’s a big change from the zero degree temperatures that this area endured only a week ago during the Great Texas Freeze. Today, the Daughter and I are moving once again. We’re headed to more comfortable amenities in North Dallas thanks to the greater availability of motel rooms and the generosity of some of our dearest friends. Thank you!

We’re looking forward to the change, but we’re still worried about when we may be able to return to our home—such as it is—in the Free State of Van Zandt (East Texas). Our plumber is still working on his daughter’s house. Our alternate plumber has not been in touch with us. Admittedly, we spoke to them and made tentative arrangements on Monday. It’s only Wednesday, now, and neither one promised us when they would be able to address our plumbing issues. Patience, I feel, is in order.

The “boil order” for all tap water in Van Zandt county has been lifted. Presumably, water pressure is now high enough to properly filter the water and make it potable. That’s some good news, but, otherwise, we have nothing more to report today.

We remain safe, dry, fed, and comfortable even if we are, effectively, homeless. We send our best to you all and thank you for the continued concern, prayers, support, and good vibes.
