On This Day In Texas...
February 12th, 1899 -- Arctic cold stiffens Tulia

On this day in 1899, Tulia, Texas, reported the coldest temperature ever recorded in the state--minus 23 degrees Fahrenheit. This was part of the "Big Freeze," an infamous norther that killed 40,000 cattle across the state overnight. This temperature was matched in Seminole in 1933. The highest temperature recorded for Texas was 120.

Winter is definitely not my favorite season, I should be dead by now if I leave during that time.
