  1. “Remembering When It Got Really Cold” by Mike Cox at TexasEscapes.com

    Galveston Bay froze in 1821, in 1886 and 1899. Pioneer, Jane Long gave birth to the first American baby in Texas during the final years of the Little Ice Age. In August 1883, Krakatoa volcano exploded, pouring 20 million tons of Sulfur into the atmosphere. It took two years for this Southern Hemisphere sunlight blocking gas to reach the Northern Hemisphere. This event is not the most extreme, and henceforth WE WILL ALL BE PREPPERS.
