Ice and watermelons

by Deborah Ruth
 
As the hot and dry months of the Texas summer are on us, I am so thankful that I can push a lever on my refrigerator and get little pieces of frozen water to fi ll my glass. Ice. I can’t imagine what we did before this wonderful invention. Of course, ice is not an invention. It’s a naturally occurring phenomonon when water meets cold. 32 degrees of cold to be exact. There has always been ice. Just not where it was needed, when it was needed. I tip my hat to the person that made it possible to get ice anytime I want it, without having to go outside and cut off a chunk from a frozen lake.
