Snow/Ice Day

The entire city of Austin (and the whole Central Texas region) has been shut down because of ice.

It's snowing outside for real -- huge flakes are falling.

We lost power a bit during the night, but we're good so far. They have said lines may begin to snap with the extra .5" of accumulation they are expecting.

A and I went for a little stroll to the corner market for Gerolsteiner. By the time we left, the snow had become ice and the walk back was more treacherous.

We still have power, but there is a rumor that a water main broke in the neighborhood and the water will be shut off for about 6 hours. We have plenty of water on hand, so we're fine.

They just announced heavy accumulation in our park, which we can definitely see.

It's crazy, since it was in the 70s just last week.
