Snow and Ice in DFW–A photo Essay

Feb 1, 2011 by

Wow, Old Man Winter showed up sometime in the middle of the night here in North Texas.   There’s now a sheet of ice on everything around here.

I was only out for a few minutes, the wind chill is about ZERO degrees, so I didn’t venture too far.

As you can see, the snow/ice/freezing rain mix fell and now has frozen to just a sheet.  Where cars sloshed threw, their tracks are now encased until it warms up.  Which is supposed to be Noon on Friday.  It’s Tuesday.

It’s gonna be a while before this grill gets some action again.

This is the kind of sliding we’re used to in North Texas.

Seriously,  I weigh more than I should and more than I want to. This is all of the shoeprint I could leave in the snow/ice mix.


This is a view of the railing outside on the porch.

Something else that won’t be needed for a little while.  The air conditioning compressor unit outside.

This morning DFW Airport has been closed for what was said to be the first time ever.   Love Field had issues, and even Dart rail in Dallas stopped running and they were converting to buses. And nearly every one of the 38 school districts in the Dallas Fort Worth area was closed, too.

Meanwhile in Arlington, Media Day goes on for the Super Bowl.
