    I had a blast playing in this stuff... on the streets of Jacksboro, TX:cool:

    I drove by this little Hyundai Tiburon stuck in the snow... so naturally I turned around, got my chain out, and pulled him out... I was amazed how well my truck performed.
    The guy was really thankful and slipped me a $50... Merry Christmas!!

    Well... You are a brave person to venture out with so much snow on the ground!:boink:

    :p

    SWMBO told me that the folks in the Texas office were closing down because of freezing rain. She (or rather I) had to scrape about a quarter inch of ice off her windows before she left for work that day.

    So I guess it depends on what you're used to and equipped for. I understand that when the snow hits further south, the folks there do not have the plows and salt trucks to deal with it.

    I just hope you guys can dig out by Christmas. :D

    Merry Christmas!

    Yeah, we don't have plows. One time they shut down school because there was 1/4" of snow on the ground. We couldn't even make snowmen. But we have had a few bad ice storms

    Yea the sudden freezing that happens around Austin is amazing imo. When I was back there for training a few years ago it started out about 55F in the morning and dropped to about 18F by around 5PM, the entire time it was raining/snowing as it dropped. It was pretty wild.

    Sorry pic was way to big lol... I'd resize but I'm at work and don't have my tools... http://auniverse.net/sumomo/ice/100_0174.JPG
