Ice, snow, and repeated bouts of bitter cold have made this winter one to remember. But, the weather has been more than a hot topic. Weather conditions outside have been costly for folks staying inside, especially North Texans heating their homes with propane.
Texas Gas Service (TGS) was forced to shut down the gas supply to the entire city of Jacksboro Thursday. Most businesses and residents had no heat, on a day when temperatures struggled to get out of the teens.
After a two-day holiday — compliments of an ice storm — students at Dallas’ Esperanza “Hope” Medrano Elementary returned to class Tuesday. But they received a less than warm welcome: the school’s heat was out for much of the day.
A day ago, North Texans were walking around in short sleeves and shorts. Now, they are prepping for a storm that could drop significant ice across much of the area.
