Hey I know what real snow is, I'm originally from Iowa. I laugh at this stuff along with you guys. But you should hear the news reports and others talking about the weather. You'd think the world has come to an end or something. So far we've reached 25 degrees F and aren't expecting to break the feezing point until tomorrow.
As for sand trucks, all three of them have been on the roads since last night. Yes I said all THREE, no holding back today! Also, they don't use any salt, just sand and only on the main streets. No side streets, not even through downtown. With as few cars as were out this morning there were over 100 reported wrecks during the morning "rush" hour. It started last night during rush hour and comuters making the drive from south Austin to north Austin (typically about 20 minutes) took an average of 3.5 hours to get home... :crazy:
