Dallas Family Cracks Open Ice-Covered Pool After Cold Snap Hits

A father and son attempted to crack through ice on their frozen pool in Dallas, Texas, as a record-breaking cold snap swept across the state.

This footage by Dawn McMullan shows her husband and son using brooms to smash the ice.

“Life lessons number two during The Great Freeze: Texas pools do not understand this weather. Texans do not have proper ice fighting tools,” McMullan wrote on Facebook.

Local reports said north Texas was issued its first ever wind chill warning on Sunday, February 14.

CBS DFW reported the warning was in place until noon Tuesday, with temperatures expected to drop into low single digits and below zero in some areas on Monday. Credit: Dawn McMullan via Storyful
