Snow in Austin?


We got our first “snow” last evening. At least, the Austin equivalent of snow. For us, it’s mostly frozen ice and it does manage to create much havoc on the streets and highways. Most Austinites are not used to driving in these sort of hazardous conditions and do not make any allowances in speed or brake time and only manage to stop when they run into something.

Don’t know what it is about Austin drivers. It’s as though inclement weather is like someone throwing down a gauntlet and the foolhardy ones accept the challenge by driving faster and thinking less. That is until they either cause an accident or manage to get themselves involved in one.

I made a small video of the scenes at my house. Kinda picturesque in a way. Thank goodness that it only lasted for a couple of days. I spent ten years in New York State and saw enough snow to last me two lifetimes.

Hate the stuff…That and cold weather…Come on you 100 degrees…
