    I heard that some places around the west texas-eastern new mexico got like 3-6 inches of snow but I live about 60 miles from the state line and all we got was a trace,and some really cold temps.it was in the teens last night and is only 26 right now.


    On a side note We did get a heavy snow on tues morning,it accumulated about 3 inches in an hours time,but we were too warm for it to stay.plus it rained for 2 hours after the snow and the snow all melted. :(

    it is funny to see how stupid drivers really are around when we get snow and ice,idiots think since the speed limit says 55,that they can go 55 on ice and wind up hiting ditch or another car.

  5. LOL....Good ole Texas :)
    I live around the Dallas Ft Worth area and so far today the sun keeps going in and out. It is a bit cold here though...Would love to see some snow so I can go out and play!!...
    It snowed Tuesday am but it was not sticking...So hopefully later today it will just snow snow snow and stay on the ground a few days :)....
    You are so right about the drivers.....Even if it is only pouring down rain and you can hardly see the car in front of you some drivers still think it is ok to go 80 miles an hour LOL....
    As far as UO goes, I am having turkey withdrawls. I so loved killing those turkeys...Now when I log on it is like ok now what do I do :)....
    Stay warm Texans and see you in the game....

    well this morning at 7am it was 23 with freezing fog,and then around 1pm we had a small storm go over and dropped pea sized hail and then around 3pm it was 54 and had high winds(gust up to 73mph in the area) and blowing dirt.

    went from freezing to choking in about 6 hours.

    when it comes to icey, snowy weather - it doesn't matter if you're in a state that has it all the time during winter cause ppl still drive like crazy, I remember when I started driving, took me a bit to catch on

    -- but still that's no excuse for ppl that have been driving forever, then they wonder how they end up in the ditch or why they had an accident...

    my mind switches gears while driving in winter, and i am always on the defense cause I never know how other ppl are driving... i try not to go anywhere if I can help it when the roads are bad, but somehow I manage to make it to work

    LOL! Aren't we quite the comedian!
    Actually you are fairly close to teh mark because it is brewed in a lil' ol'
    brewery in a little pissant town named (shockingly) Shiner Texas.
    It's actually quite sought after in the surrounding states because it is only
    shipped and sold in Texas. I don't much care for it but others seem to and
    most bars even sell it for teh same price as imports!
    Go figure.:pint:
