Not Going Anywhere

Yes I know it does not look like much but we are talking Texas here. Last night about 11pm it started raining, hard. Then about 4am the thunder and lightning started along with more hard rain. When I got up this is what it looked like. Of course it is not the gazillion inches of snow that they have had and are expecting in the north or even in the Oklahoma area but it was about 2" of ice with snow on top of it. Right now it is 19 degrees with a wind chill of Zero. The wind is blowing about 30 mph so it whips the dusting of snow on top of the ice. My car is one big sheet of ice. There is no going anywhere. I have only seen one person on the road, the mailman who lives across the street left about 7am. Bless his heart. They do not expect us to even get to 30 degrees till Friday. Stay home or you will be slip sliding away.
