Brrr....  It has been a week of weird weather!

Here in southeast Texas, we were stunned to see snow for the first time in almost four years. We‘re probably even more stunned to know that there will be further flurries before it’s all said and done.

Of course, something as beautiful as unexpected snowfall in an unlikely location doesn’t come without a price. Since snow is simply sleet taken to another level, and sleet is simply frozen rain, we have to expect that this lacy handiwork of nature will be accompanied by temperatures much colder than we‘re used to.

When you‘re not accustomed to severe Winter weather, you  might not be all that great at handling it! Icy road conditions can be dangerous to those unskilled in navigating them, and chances are good you don’t even have the right wardrobe!  

Bracing yourself against elements you‘re not typically exposed to is often hard to do. We’ll don extra layers of clothes and seek the warm shelters of our cars and homes until it passes, but in the end we‘re just going to have to hope for the best.

It’s kind of the same way when dealing with people. When faced with someone who is hard to warm up to, we immediately step into survival mode and follow our instincts. Some of us will try and thaw the icy personality with our charm and humor; others might just toughen their skin, resolving themselves to the fact that the storm will eventually pass. Ultimately, we will all seek the comfort of warmer hearts, since we are more likely to flourish in that inviting environment.    

This week’s movies offer us a little bit of everything from extreme winter weather to extremely cold personalities. Settle in and snuggle up with one of these winners... It’s bound to warm up sooner or later! happy
