Valley Family Using Stove to Keep Warm through Cold Front
WESLACO– A Rio Grande Valley family is bracing the cold as freezing temperatures arrive Wednesday night.
Maria Hernandez says she’s lived in a colonia in Weslaco for years. She says without a heating system, every winter is a struggle.
“Right now, what I’m doing is cooking beans so the house can warm up a little bit,” she says. “Later, I plan on marking more food at night. It’ll turn the oven on so the house can warm up a little,” says Hernandez.
KRGV’s Cecilia Gutierrez looked into what other options Hernandez has if the cold is too much to bear.
