Ok, the National Weather Service just got into the act:
The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a Winter Storm Watch... which is in effect from late Thursday night through Friday morning. Sleet changing to freezing rain expected late Thursday night through Friday noon along and west of a line from Sherman... Mesquite... Waco... to Temple. A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Gather around the TV sets and prepare for "Winter Blast 2008!!!" Lari Barager, get your booty up here to Wise County pronto. We need some reports and we need them badly.
Stock up on water. Stock up on pinto beans. Make sure you have a blanket, ice scraper, and perhaps some kitty litter in your trunk. Dress warmly - in layers. Make sure you have an ample supply of batteries and flashlights. Don't hit your brakes. Turn into the skid. Good lord, this is gonna be bad.
