Monday/ a bitterly cold President’s Day

It was a bone-chilling President’s Day holiday in the Midwest. Texas has ice and snow, all the way down to Galveston on the Gulf of Mexico.
Here in Seattle, the snow is melting steadily. It went up to 43 °F (6 °C) today.

Look at Dallas: 1 °F (-17 °C), a 100-year low. Texas has had widespread power outages today as well, so not a good situation to have this kind of cold, with no heating in the house. I suspect only some homes in Texas have central heating (say, a gas furnace), just as only some homes here in Seattle have central air-conditioning.
