Suuuuuuuuuuuuuure.  As long as we do not lose power.  We have no source of heat if that happens.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Here's what Dallas isn't telling us:

Quote

Dallas: almost no snow, but pretty bad ice
Ice shuts down Texas SO fast. It stayed in the 20s today which meant very little melting. It's very thick around my house. And covered with about 1/2 inch of snow. Most of the major school districts in DFW have already cancelled school for tomorrow after being cancelled today. I've lived in dallas a long time and can't remember 2 consecutive snow/ice days. It does seem worse than usual though. The few people I know who've driven around today said it was really bad. Usually when there's an ice storm by midday everyone says it's not too bad.

Dude, rain is much worse than snow. You can't do anything in the rain. Think about watching a football game in the snow v. in the rain.

Snow, no contest.

This is south LA. We can survive in the rain (hurricanes.. hello?) We shut down with snow.

I am more concerned with the lowly +7 degree temperature change that day. :\

You'll sit in a stadium for 3 hours in the middle of a rainstorm?

You don't even get wet when it snows.

Wifey was out playing tennis and stopped at Walmart to get some food.  They had one kerosene heater left and she snagged it.  We needed one...

I wouldn't sit in a stadium for any sort of precipitation. It better be cloudy or sunny AND dry. :)~ With snow, the concern isn't being wet, it's being COLD!

Still waiting in Chicago. I'm watching the news, and they are frothing at the mouth showing pictures of sleet getting blown back in the air by unexceptional gusts of wind. Nothing to get excited about at this point despite the hype and misleading imagery. Real snow flakes fell for about 1/2 around 2:30, but it's been steady sleet. The worst was to hit at 3pm, then 6pm, now maybe midnight...???

How's the blizzard of 2011 treating you?
We got about 4 inches instead of the 10+ promised for the first round.  Tomorrow's forecast has been scaled back from 20" to 10-12.  Whooopteeefrickin'do!
CONK da ball!!!

^^^ lol  hahaha

I went to bed around 10:00pm last night because it didn't look like the bid dump would hit until midnight. Woke up this morning and peeped out the window at my truck to see the bed filled to the top. The snow was dry and accompanied by wind, so the tops of the cars are clean and the truck's bed perfectly level. When the consistency of the snow is heavy, it will pile up on the cars several inches. On the other hand, the wind has created large snow drifts here and there that turn 12" of snow into 3' here and there. I live near a snow route and I see people are already driving down the streets at 7am. I street-park on an unplowed street, so I won't be able to move.

It's beautiful this a.m. I can see blue in the sky.

Looking forward to swish's report. Hopefully, he has power.  ://

Well, I cleaned off my car and the surrounding area.

It will help later, for now there are no cars going down the side streets, none. People are walking in the middle of these streets. People are walking on the main streets too, but traffic is very light as hardly anyone can get their cars out.
We got about 20 inches but around my car it was about 3 feet and some drifts up to 6 feet.
The snow is light so a lot of it blew off of roofs and added to the totals on the ground around these buildings.
Possible further reports later.  :\

Wow guys. We are at 14 degrees and the state of Texas decides to do "rolling black outs" because of electricity demands. It is now a little after 1:30 here and our power has gone out 5 tines this morning!!!!  Wonder if the super bowl committee regret that it gave us the super bowl over Miami where it will be in the 80's today. Lol
