Only in Texas (Houston Edition)


This. Is. Ridiculous.

Remember the Friday before Superbowl when the whole country was crippled by snow? When Dallas had to shut down airports due to several inches of snow and no way to get rid of it? In Houston, the freeways were shut down because of ice and the mayor declared everyone should stay at home.

This was outside my patio Friday morning. The temperature was 29. And there had been NO PRECIPITATION.

The white stuff? Salt. You know, just in case.

Totally a case of better safe than sorry but honestly if they can come dump that crap around they can come clean it up too in my opinion they made the mess! They should also pay for car washes to get it off our vehicles as well! :)

HA! I wish it was like that here...although for some reason, kids still don't have to go to school when it snows here, but we have to go to work. ANNOYING.

That's awesome. Our usually giant salt pile off the side of the freeway in Columbus has dwindled down to nothing...you should bag that up and end it our way.

People in utah are jealous of such things. We get two feet of snow and we still have to buckle down and go to work!

Oh man that's too funny. People are pretty bad ehere in seattle too. A couple inches and women are abandoning their cars on the freeway, no joke. In other news, if you haven't seen it I'm hosting my {first} blog giveaway, so if that's your kinda thing come check it out!
