|you asked for the snow, you got the snow|
No. That is not snow.
That is ice.
Thursday night, we received several inches of sleet that froze onto every surface in North Texas. We don’t have light fluffy snow, we can’t build snow men or have snow ball fights. It’s all solid ice, and it is slippery as hell.
It bewilders me that people rag on Texas for not being able to cope with winter weather, when this, inches of solid ice on every motorway, is our winter weather if we have any at all.
Major road ways were shut down because semi’s were stalled out in the middle of lanes. Cars and trucks everywhere spun out into ditches while traveling between five and fifteen miles an hour because the black ice is so bad. I was one of them. I nearly hit one of those semi’s parked on the side of the road. Twice I had to be pulled out of ice because my car got stuck. This is all on the same three hour drive that normally takes me thirty minutes.
North Texans are shut inside their homes, many with no food, no electricity, and no hot water. Stores are running out of dairy, eggs, and bread.
North Texas is not equipped to deal with this sort of weather. It is not normal for us. We don’t have enough salt and sand trucks to service the entire DFW when a storm of this magnitude hits, even with four days notice. This morning, I-20, I-30, I-35, US 114/170, and various other Texas high ways were impassible, closed off, or clogged with traffic because icy conditions.
Even though today the roads were slush, the bridges and overpasses are still covered in bumpy ice, making driving difficult and at times unsafe.
And the DFW has a lot of bridges and overpasses.
These are horrible conditions, terribly unsafe, and employers still expect employees to come in to work, even with these driving conditions. This is not funny, and this does not deserve snark.
We did not get any snow.
If a report of mugging was treated like a report of rape.
This is the most emotional post in the history of tumblr
if you ever have to watch one american football game please watch the lions/eagles game going on right now. they’re playing in 7/8 inches of snow and they’re not allowed to clear the snow off the field
My uncle has been posting pictures since the start of the game guys you don’t understand this is hilarious
the lions fumbled six times in the first 18 minutes and are winning
I don’t ever watch football but this amuses me.
Why are we so ashamed of periods? … Women’s bodies are incredibly sexualized in our media and in our every day experiences. So much so that even mentioning menstruation sends a lot of people into kindergarten levels of EW. And why? Because for a moment, you have broken the spell. And suddenly, you are no longer a magical mannequin unicorn fairy existing purely for the sexual fantasy of other people. Suddenly, you’re a human being! (X)
