    It\'s raining Ice here in south Texas...

    Here in San Antonio, it's 24 degrees at 1 in the morning and there's about 1/4" of ice on all the cars. My burban's door is frozen shut... You guys probably don't find this a very big deal, but to the average person here who doesn't understand what ice does to cars on roads, this is bad news. They're shutting down highways and everything...I just hope they aren't too many morons that kill themselves trying to speed on the ice tonight. The people here can't drive when it's dry, let alone on ice...

    Re: It\'s raining Ice here in south Texas...

    I love how everything in the south half of Texas comes to a screeching halt with the slightest bit of ice. Most of the schools have been delayed or cancelled, and many businesses also started late. Even Fort Hood delayed their "report for duty" times as late as noon. But not them Aggies. We were at school at 8am.

    Yeah, I heard san antonion, austin, and dallas were all dealing with that.
    Here in Houston it's cold but the only ice is on the northwest side, far away from me /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
