Default Winter storm '13 TX, OK, AR, MO Sound off

since the ice/sleet/snow has started i wanted to make sure everyone was doing alright. I know that the northerners are going to scoff at the paltry 3-6 inches of crap expected to be dumped on us, but knowing my area, 1/2" of precip can close schools and fubar traffic.

So sound off and let us know you're alright!

I'm in the Frozen tundra of Minnesota, and it sucks here. Right now it's 2F (-16C), and the wind is blowing at 21mph. This means the windchill is -25F (-31C).

We also had 6 inches of the crap here, and it made the roads a nightmare yesterday. At least I'm not in the Two Harbors area that got 42 inches of that crap.

In west texas, and its sleeting. Some of the smaller school districts have had early dismissals and we've already had at least two wrecks from stupid drivers!

I live near the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and it's supposed to get up to 38 F today, and only 32 F tomorrow.

The weather is supposed to be such that they moved a couple of high school football playoff games from Friday Night to Thursday Night, and moved the kickoff up an hour and a half, just to try to beat the freezing temps and possible freezing rain/sleet.

Lucky me. I'm driving up to Pittsburgh from DC tomorrow, and back on Monday. I am hoping the oncoming storm will either slow down, or go somewhere else. But it doesn't look like it will.

It seems to be OK here so far. Fortunately, I have enough groceries that I won't need to go to the store if it gets really icky later.

Okay, and I'm not going to complain about the glaze of ice that made things a bitch that we got here in Iowa yesterday. Everyone stay safe out there!
