Icy Ice House

This picture was taken at our bar this morning after our "horrible" ice storm last night. Compared to the storms at home (Fort Wayne, IN) this was nothing. But compared to the mild weather of Texas, this was severe. Schools were closed, highways shut down, 18-wheelers jack-knifed right and left. It was chaos. And yet, I made it to work. Averaged 30 mph the entire way, but I made it.
I know, I amaze myself sometimes too.
And don't worry. The ice was mostly melted by noon so that people could get on with their lives. At least that gives them enough time to re-stock their bottled water and canned veggies before the next big natural disaster hits!
