School/Daycare Closings?

It looks like it a crazy combo of early closings out there. (I don't think I've ever seen so many young mothers scramble out of the courthouse).

Jeers to the new Yesterday's in Bridgeport, knowing that 99% of it's staff is teenagers and requiring them to come to work when Schools,Companies are closing and making them or there parents risk property damage or worse to get them to and from work today..Hope that extra dollar is worth someones car damage or worse their life! Like you are going to be busy tonight!

I just don't get it! Do you native Texans always panic when a few flakes fall or a little ice appears on roads? If most of the rest of the country acted this way - they'd be closed for 4 months of the year. Come on - grow up - and learn to deal with a little weather. Geeeeze - what weather wimps ya'll are!

Um, the icy weather here in TX is different from other parts of the country. Instead of the DRY ice that crunches and breaks beneath a car, our wintry mixes are wet and solidify into a slick, frozen icerink for traffic.

comment4u, How provincial. The heat is different, too, I suppose. And remember the wind - Texas wind is really different also.

Ice is the result of water moisture dropping below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Relative dryness is basically due to the ambient temperature. Snow/sleet comes in all degrees of wetness throughout the country (and world). To suggest it's somehow unique in Texas (or Wise Co.) just shows an overly narrow ethnocentricity.

Oh, bite my provincial "ethnocentricity." Why people have to be snots about Texans exercising caution is what I "just don't get."

Oh, but thanks ever so much for the weather tutorial.

Anon @ 11:43...I've lived up north, where just about everyone has the right cars, equipment and know how to, as you say it, deal with the weather. In case ya haven't noticed...wintry weather takes up about two or three days out of our year here. So, if we want to make a HUGE deal out of it, get out of school and work and choose not to drive on those icy streets, so be it. Talk to us again this summer when it's 113 in the shade...we'll see who's whining then.
