There is at lest a 1/4" of ice on my car. It's 30F, though we have a breeze along with the sleet, so according to my weather thing, it's actually 22F.
I know, I know, you guys in Chicago, Boston, wherever are laughing yourselves sick over this. But in Austin? We are not so sanguine. We have lots of overpasses and they are now making noises that they city crews may be out of sand and de-icer soon. And this crap is supposed to continue until at least noon on Wednesday. When I was living in West Texas, you'd get used to it. When I was going to school in Michigan, you got used to it. But it was in the upper 70's on Thursday!
*coughs* Of course, I went outside in a t-shirt, pajama bottoms, and flip-flops to take pictures. What? Just because I don't like cold weather doesn't mean I'm not weirdly physically adapted to it.
So I'll do for him what I do for my friends, though we have never met. :-)
Happy Birthday Joe!
