The Winter Storm of 2011!!
Many of you are probably thinking, "really, that's a winter storm?" Well, when you live in south Texas ice does apparently constitute a state of emergency. We had been hearing all week that we had the possibility of snow yesterday, so, with bated breath, we all waited. Businesses starting closing early on Thursday, afternoon school activities were canceled, and then schools starting closing for Friday. Our school district waited, but finally at 2 on Thursday, it was clear that we would not work either. There you have it...we will have a snow day, or so we thought! This is really what we got...
Nice huh? I actually took this picture at school on Thursday, but all we got from the "winter storm" was a lot of ice! It did make for a treacherous day for those that had to get out...not me! Over 800 accidents were reported in the city of Houston yesterday. All I have to say is, "duh, didn't you hear them telling you to stay off the roads?" It's obvious that here in TX, we don't have much experience with icy roads. So, call us silly, crazy, whatever you like. I know you want to!
