    I just went to the window & could'nt believe my eyes. I been years since I've seen this strange white stuff. Well I'm stranded for awhile, my tires will not grip on ice or snow. Will post pics.

    Congrats Will. Some take to the roads to experience snow in a downhill capacity. It does snow in other parts of Texas. It may be 80 here but
    its snowin there.

    Not so bad to drive in, the ground is too warm. I went over to check on my mom to make sure everything is OK.The only thing I fear is if it freezes over later tonight. I hate driving on ice.

    Ralph, I miss my old sking days, my parents had a timeshare in Vail for about 5 years. I hope every thing is going well for you in Houston.

    I took a couple good pics at Bauchman lake this morning and then pulled the 328 out for a few quick ones. Drove from Dallas to Southlake and roads are mostly good. I'm sure every hour they're getting a little better too. Some of the 3 lane roads like 114 are down to 2 lanes, many of the stop lights are out, and the trees are sagging and limbs breaking with the wet snow weight.

    Ah Snow.... Being Canadian I for get how Rare this is here.... but it helps

    out in the Waffle House Yellow S4 6speed and got pulled for speeding.... I really bet I could have lost him.... except for the YELLOW standing out.

    The Cop looks at me and says .... You were speeding sir... Then gave me a Unsafe lane change instead of the 30 over he could have.... THANKS OFFICER!!!!

    "You know sir I have no doubt you know exactly what you are doing and how to handle this car but Serriously people here can't drive in the rain..."

    Here's a shot of this morning. I took others but the files were too large to post. My DSL kit came in incomplete without the modum card, I'm using dial up & it's soooooooooo slow. Rob's correct about the traffic lights, it all screwed up over here too.

    Correct, that old red brick is a rough ride on my car, I try to avoid it when I can.

    Someone here at work took this pic in Coppell on Saturday. The person lives in the area and says the car never moves from the front of the house.
