Just Invisible Danger

Sometimes I think the weather people know that Houstonions are anxious for slow flurries, so they build it up... they build US up. We were supposed to get 1-2 inches!  Snow showers from 5pm yesterday to 10am this morning.  Then they moved it to 10pm last night to 10am this morning.  Then I stopped paying attention to what "they" said.

I set my alarm for about 6am so that I could check outside, because if everything was going to be white, I'd definitely go out to take pictures of that.  When the alarm went off, the first thing I heard was, "...no snow, but there is plenty of that dangerous black ice. Don't attempt to drive anywhere if you don't have to."  Then I turned my alarm off and tried to go back to sleep, but all I could think about was "BUMMER!" and "How did the lady on the radio get to work then?" (and I actually used to know that DJ because her daughter ice skated when I coached it back in the day)

Anyway... no prettiness. Just the danger. Invisible danger (sounds like book fodder....). Be safe out there.

Happy weekend.

  1. I saw how Dallas looked on the news this morning. I think it's so funny the Super Bowl is held there instead of Miami this year and they're getting snow! Good thing the stadium has a roof. :)

    Stay safe out there! Have a great weekend!

  3. Black ice sucks! There is a lot of it around here. Basically anywhere I've driven this week took me forever to get there, because my top maximum speed has been 10mph the last few days. Sometimes I live dangerously and hit 20mph. LOL
