    If God wanted Texans to experience snow, bull**** would be white.

    I've seen native Texans experience snow, and it wasn't pretty.

    at least you've got sand.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I still remember riding along in the car with my dad, a native Texan, as he showed by brother, a native Texan and me, a native Texan, how to drive on ice. We made it to the first corner ran into the curb/storm sewer opening and were stuck.

    Texas usually gets more ice than snow.

    I like where this thread is going. Even a hint of snow and all the news anchors are ensconced in parkas and sent to areas where I think the network has paid to have the streets covered in ice so they can film wrecks and broadcast the carnage against a backdrop that says "Demon Possessed Winter Storm 2010" or somesuch.

    Texas usually gets more ice than snow.
    One year I was stopped at a traffic light on the top of a slight hill. I was in the center lane, and there was a line of dually pickups parked by the curb on the downhill side, with a small group of people that looked like they were waiting for the bus. I thought it was kind of odd to see that many people waiting for a bus, but figured it out when the light changed. The good ol boy in the dually started to slide down the hill spinning the rear tires as I pulled away in my Mazda GLC.

    I've been here almost my entire life....still don't know how the grocery store shelves automatically empty of bread and milk....nor why they do that. I mean, if I'm gonna be stuck in the house for a couple days, I'm hitting the liquor store. Screw the bread.

    I'm still amazed at all the folks who can't make it in to work can make it to the liquor store.

    But do the people who work at the liquor store make it to work?

    FYI Liquor store is one block from my front door, bar is less than two blocks, and work is 40 miles. Go where it's easy to get to.

    Milk, bread and eggs seem to disappear first. I figure that the Official Food of Disaster is french toast.

    I think this would be brilliant for my disc-brake MTB to ride around in on the snow.

    A few years back, my company held a meeting at the Dallas office in January. People flew in from Europe, Asia, South America and all over the US. On the first day, Dallas got hit with 2 inches of snow and we were all stranded at the hotel because no taxis would venture out there, and the hotel refused to run the shuttle bus. Plus, none of the Dallas employees wanted to leave home. We ended up holding the meeting in one of the hotel's meeting rooms with the locals dialing in to a conference line.

    The Europeans, many of whom had driven through feet of snow to get to their respective airports were bemused to say the least.
