We don't usually get snow like this here in Texas, ice is more common. The picture on the left is the street in front of my house. It's not a lot of snow, maybe an inch or two - but it's a lot for us. The streets are slushy and will probably freeze tonight making the roads hazardous tomorrow morning. They'll probably shut everything down tomorrow. Schools will close, businesses will shut their doors. I know you guys living in Utah will probably laugh at us. The thing is, driving on ice is very different than driving on snow; plus, it happens so seldom that the local municipalities don't have adequate equipment to clean it up. The Freeways and main roads will probably be cleared, but none of the residential and side roads will be. It doesn't do much good to have the main road cleared if you can't get to it.
The iris in my garden don't seem to like it so much either. Neither do the daffodils which started blooming a week ago. :( I'm really looking forward to winter being over.
I sure am glad we have global warming - no telling how bad it would be otherwise.
So, how did you other Texans fare?
