Texans show just how freezing cold it is in the state right now.
Texas is currently facing below-freezing temperatures the state’s residents haven’t seen in ages. From highways full of snow to frozen pools, bathtubs, and even toilets, Texans are experiencing an unthinkable frostiness they were definitely not prepared for.
Here are 20+ pictures showing the unimaginable extent of the Texas deep freeze:
