For those of you outside of the Dallas Fort-Worth area, you will probably be laughing at us, but the weather and the coverage of it is just plain crazy as of late.
Since we usually don’t get a lot cold weather, there aren’t any machinery to make the roads safe, not to mention, no one here knows how to drive on slick roads and thus a lot of schools are closed for the day.
Last week all the meteorologists jump the gun on the bad weather saying a fierce wintery mix was on the way.Â There was so much hype that some schools went ahead and closed for the day since the forecast mentioned a penguin invasion. Â In reality, it was cold with some precip but the roads and everything else was just fine, a huge overreation
Last night the forecast for todayÂ was for some cold weather, but everything was predicted to be OK – no anticipation ofÂ freezing precipitation or school closings.Â However, when I walked out the door this morning there was nothing but freezing rain.Â When I walked back in GeedingManor to check all the local news channels, there was no school closings, so I headed to work.Â Heck, even Rebecca Miller stated that there was nothing to worry about and today would be a normal but cold day.Â Well, Ms Miller, I shall never rely on you for anything again.
Anywho, I did find some funny commentary about the weather in the DFW area from Dallas Inconsequential, however, I cut and pasted all the stuff after the jump so you can just read on.
Here’s the stuff I promised from Dallas Inconsequential:
Tell my mommy I loved her, and it was me who put the dent in the door of Maroon Doom when I was 18.
On second thought, just tell her I loved her.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go pull a mattress over the bathtub and huddle with a can of creamed corn. The Snowy Apocalypse has hit Dallas, and we’re all gonna die.
