Cold Dark Winter - North Texas Version

Dead Sago Palm? Bedford, TX
In the last couple of weeks, I've been noticing the effects of our unusually cold winter snap last February. For those of you with short memories or new to visiting this blog, I'll post a reminder photo of Buddy in the snow. However, the signs are unmistakable. For example, palm trees - at the northern edge of their range, tend to have what they refer to as "crown rot." Considering that we're now at mid May, I suspect the two specimens in these photos may have departed this earth and will have to be replaced by new members of their species, or with trees that can withstand our occasional North Texas cold.
 
What's more, with the onset of warmer weather, I notice that the human element has acquired a decidedly paler tint than is typical for May weather. Hopefully, the leg in the photo is not indicative of a vitamin D deficiency...







That Leg Looks a Little Pasty!

Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. People deserve wealthy life time and loans or just auto loan would make it much better.

Good lord man, that's appalling! The tree is not good, either!

Please note that your cruiser will not be apt to rust unless exposed to moisture for long periods of time.

Danial123,

If you actually READ the blog, you'd know that, while I like cruiser bikes, I not only have none, but ride none. Of course, I expect no reply from an electronic automaton...

Danial123, your latest phony link doesn't work. Just for your algorythm's info. Sheesh!
