February 1-5, 2011 -- February began with one of the strongest arctic fronts to drive through the central states in years. Temperatures remained below freezing for days. The cold front processed such strength that the electric power grid was stressed to the point there were several partial failures of power plants promoting the state to initiate rolling "black outs". Schools and other "non-essentials" were advised or directed to close as power to residences, hospitals, and first responders are the priority. The result was that Trenton ISD closed first due to icy condition and next due to power outages for two days, and then for snow to round out the week. Most area schools were closed for four consecutive days that week. Both the U.S. mail and the local newspapers could not be delivered for three of the days. The golf cart turned out to be the most "sure footed" method of travel to the campuses in order to shut down the school network to prevent damage from the rolling blackouts.

The buggie traveled back and forth to various school campuses during the record breaking cold in early February 2011.
The morning of Friday, February 4, 2011 brought 4 to 5 inches of snow on top of the ice.

April 2011 spring in North Texas
April 16, 2011 -- The cold winter lead to a hot and dry spring with very high winds. The pink evening primrose really liked it. The grass and irises did not.
After four years these Dianthus are doing well.
