As North Texans start the process of recovering from the past week’s brutal arctic blast, there is light at the end of the tunnel. It’s called the sun and it’s starting to defrost neighborhoods. Grocery stores and gasoline stations are preparing to receive 18-wheelers bearing product. At this time, eggs, milk and meat products are pretty scant. Gas stations are hit-or-miss with some sacking the handles and others open for business. With fingers crossed, shelves will be stocked and gasoline pumps brimming with black gold by Monday at the latest.
Of course, nonprofits are also in recovery mode. For instance, the Dallas Zoo is closed to the public through Sunday, February 21, “due to clean-up from the winter storms.”
The Dallas Arboretum is closed today and Saturday, but the gates will open Sunday for the kickoff of Dallas Blooms. Word has it that the tulips are just busting to bloom. And even more good news: the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden will reopen on Monday, February 22.
Klyde Warren Park is almost all open. Only its Children’s Park remains closed.
