To my Texans:
Your homes were not built for this weather. When the snow passes (It will, i promise. Just hang in there.) remember to inspect your home. Check your pipes, your windows, frames, and please please PLEASE look at any exposed concrete foundation. When I say your house is built different than mine, I mean it. Warm climates have a different building code than cold climates, so your concrete mixes, your glass fixtures, your pipes, they are all different. They were not built to withstand these cold temperatures for this long of a period.
My biggest concern: foundations. So you may or may not have heard of freeze-thaw. Basically, concrete is porous and tends to freeze in the winter. The freezing causes the concrete to expand, which it doesn't like to do. As it expands, it internally cracks and causes devastating damage to your foundation. Unfortunately, in warmer climates they do not add the additives into concrete to prevent freeze-thaw like they do in colder climates. That and the overall concrete mixture is designed differently. Now there's a whole degree on this type of thing so I won't get into the schematics of everything, but basically this all comes back to one thing: your home was not designed to withstand this.
So now what?
Keep your home insulated. Put plastic wrap over windows to keep the heat in, put blankets/clothing on your floors, keep towels under doorways, seal all openings anyway you can. Keeping your house warm will help.
Keep your gutters and downspouts clear as often as possible. Don't risk your health to do it, but eventually all that snow will melt. And that leaves a lot of water and water damage. This can do just as much harm on the foundation.
Keep your water running. By this I mean just try to let your faucets drip. I know it may seem wasteful, but it prevents the pipes from freezing. Frozen pipes like to burst, and that is not a fun time. The last thing you want to deal with is a flooded basement in the winter.
Hopefully this helps a little. Don't take this post as fear mongering, it's just here to help you understand how your home was built without looking at a bunch of letters and numbers because that's how construction likes to categorize and classify things. It's to give you the proper knowledge to at least protect your home against cold weather damages. Stay safe!

page 487 - different types of snow have different coefficients of friction, so you can stack your snow at different angles. Moisture content and so forth.
