I know that my friends and family that live in areas much more to the north are going to look at these photos and wonder what in the world has come over me -- this is nothing. And, by the standards set by the winter of 2015 in our northeast, it isn't except this isn't snow -- it is solid ice. AND......because "this doesn't happen often" as per our weather officials (note, it only happens EVERY YEAR), we don't have the resources to get rid of it. They are putting down chemicals on the highways and sand to help but if you do a google search on the highway system in DFW you will see that our highways are four levels in some places so they are treacherous on a good day -- never mind this sort of thing. They only treat the highways and nothing is done for the city streets so we are iced in -- for days. It is really yucky.
So, anyway, for your viewing pleasure, here are my Ice Storm 2015 photos.
|Right outside my front door -- what you can't see is that the brick is covered in solid ice|
|Also out my front door at a quirky angle|
|My front wall -- about 1/ 2 inch of ice|
|My patio turned ice rink|
Somebody on tv said maybe a few snow flurries a bit later? Hmmm...always good fun -- snow on ice. Ok, well, I think I will vacuum.
