TheSneakerWhore: This is stupid.

The last ice-storm we had in DFW truly did make driving all but impossible--I lost $1,000 in wages that weekend. I managed to make the 4 block commute, but only after getting stuck 4 times, and could barely get into my parking lot. This, this is just pathetic.

/Yankee living in Texas--learn to drive in/on the ice.
//If it is too dangerous (like 5 weeks ago) stay home.

Almost as stupid as not simply walking the four blocks to work?
You lost $1000 in wages because you couldn't walk FOUR BLOCKS.
You definitely sound like a Texan to me.

This was posted by KSAT in San Antonio this morning.  People at  I-410 and US 281 abandoned their cars on an icy flyover.  My question... where did they go?

I wouldn't want to be on that stacked interchange with ice and no salt.  And lets face it - if they salted the roads, San Antonians would be trying to dress Corona bottles and Margarita glasses.

lack of warmth: "We may not be the best prepared for it.  It was nice to know the school district was."

How?  They did nothing, and surrendered.  France did that, you don't want a school district going full France.

It takes being in the heart of the Polar Vortex for our schools to close.  Only a few days, their open today.

Such a shame a Polar Vortex struck and closed school the day they were supposed to teach there/they're/their, huh?

State_College_Arsonist: Hoping and praying for a snow day was definitely a part of my childhood.  It's hard for me to imagine growing up without seeing snow.

Likewise. It's ironic, because now I want snow to go away forever. It looks pretty, but driving in it (or rather, dealing with people who forget how to drive in it) is a nightmare.
