OK, for semi-tropical Houston this weather is C-O-L-D. I get up this morning and find ice on the inside of my balcony sliding glass door. Condensation near the bottom the glass has frozen, including clogging the tracks with ice. I won’t be able to step out out onto the balcony without applying a hair dryer to the ice. And the city is having rolling blackouts to conserve power, so firing up a blow drier is probably not the most public-spirited thing to do. I’ll see if afternoon sun makes the problem thaw out on its own.
This reminds me of the time I went with a friend to a 99’s (women pilots) convention in Oklahoma City in February and they were having a severe cold weather event. I don’t think there was one square inch of that hotel over 60 degrees, and in our room, the sliding patio door completely frosted over. On the inside.
