Baby, It’s Cold Outside… And Can Be Inside, Too

It’s going to be extremely cold for South Texas the next few nights. It’s going to be colder than our South Texas systems are used to dealing with. We are talking about lows in the 20s for the next 4 nights. Depending on the wind speed, we could have single digit wind chill factors.

Victoria Red Cross will open a “Warming Shelter” for homeless persons on Tue, Wed, Thur and Fri nights at First United Methodist Church on Bridge street. It will be open from 5:00p to 9:00a each day. The church members have been trained by Red Cross and stand ready to provide volunteers so that homeless persons in our community can weather the below-freezing temperatures for the next few nights. Volunteers are needed to help so this will be a positive experience for those needing shelter. Please consider making time to help. A huge thank you to the Victoria Red Cross, the First United Methodist Church, and anyone who volunteers their time and/or money.

Please remember our ‘other’ citizens that may need assistance during this cold spell. The elderly, the handicapped, the disabled, the mentally challenged, and the poor. Even if you have your own shelter, you may, for one reason or another, not be able to heat it. It doesn’t take long for the temperature to drop to a dangerous level even if you are indoors. These are our fellow human beings. If you know of someone in need, please help them or direct them to help.

Don’t forget our little furry and feathered friends, either. They are just like us… not conditioned for this kind of weather… and it could be deadly for them.

I hear people say (I’ve actually said it myself) “take care of your people, pets, and plants”. Plants grow back or can be replaced. People and pets… not so much. Let’s all take care of each other.
