The temperature was not above freezing for two weeks, I had my first diesel F 250 and had no idea diesel fuel congealed so it was almost useless. My partner and I decided to go duck hunting, backed the trailer down the ramp and it sat on the ice, when daylight came we could barely see open water on Lake Lewisville. DECEMBER 18, 1983 – THE 31st ANNIVERSARY OF THE HISTORICAL COLD SNAPThis was only 1 of the coldest spells we have gone thru in Texas. I remember coming home from the service in November of 83 on December 18th we have wave after wave of attic fronts. Dr. Ed do you remember that a lot of our lakes froze over , white rock lake had people walking on the ice !
