    We're doing 10-15" of snow tonite - with intermixed sleet - oooo CRUNCHY. I'm sure schools will be closed tomorrow. hehe - I had several students ask me late this afternoon if college will be canceled tomorrow. I do not envy working that front desk tomorrow ... if anything classes may be closed, but faculty and staff will report - yay!! but then, I take a bus in (this Winter has been too bad to commute to work, I still do stores and rides) to work so ... meh - I'll take the bus in - but if I'm waiting out in that weather - I'll go in way late - especially if I'm standing out there for 45 minutes or more ....

    We seem to be right on the edge of freezing rain. It's freezing on the trees and power lines which is bad news, but on the ground it's a slushy mix. Weird. Power has been flickering. I should have chopped that firewood....
    This has to be a tie between re-frozen slushy uneven dirty ice stuff just right of the nicely plowed pavement, and super-glassy ice with a dusting of fresh powder - SalshShark

All businesses and retails stores have signs on them saying they will be closed tomorrow. The city had workers dropping off memos to recommend all businesses close at 2pm today and remain closed until thurs. crazy stuff. Anyone out in this storm stay safe!
    I did my part be leaving early today, it's nasty out there. And toasty warm inside!

    We're about to get the backside wraparound now, with the heaviest snow. We have 7" of sleet and snow on the ground right now and it's been mixed sleet and snow, and yes, even some thunder about 20 minutes ago. Winds are dropping at the moment, but it's just because the center of the low is on top of us and we're in the lull. It's about to get nasty again, very soon.

    We got like a whole 1/2 to 1 inch. Not sure what the official count is.

    Awww, that was mean.

    I think the biggest thing I dislike about Fort Worth is the proximity to Tornadoes. You move down south 200 miles and you hardly ever hear any mention of them. Here, however, they are a more regular occurence.

    Our city is probably reacting a lot worse to thise 1-3 inches of snow we just got overnight than you guys do with 6+

    Was talking to a friend in NY and he's like "you guys have snow in texas?" That was before we just got this inch+ of snow last night. I'll have to send him some photos while he's on vacation in Costa Rica. just to, you know, warm him up.
