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.
