Dallas, Now at Ice Force 1

snowhighways.jpg
City Hall just sent word: At midnight, shortly after the snow began to fall, the city went to Ice Force 1 -- meaning, 30 sanding units took to the streets, where drivers, at least, are crawling along carefully, per Friends of Unfair Park as they headed back from the Flaming Lips show at the Palladium. At last, an honest-to-God snow day. (Incidentally, everyone knows Ice Force 1 was better than Ice Force 2 -- more Lee Marvin, less Billy Drago.)

I guess ice force 1 doesn't apply to side streets. I backroaded it from lowest Greenville up to Richardson and the roads are a mess

How does snow on top of ice drive? I'm fixin to find out. Hopefully better than the still glazed residential street I was coming home on from the dollar movie last night. I imagine the snow covered up the tire tracks I left in that front lawn. Its called poor technique.

At 6:30 am, the snow was 5.5 in deep in my yard. Is there an ice force 3? How will the city deal with this and the Super Bowl?

When I was out yesterday, I hit the grocery store, but skipped the booze-a-torium. So far, so good. Still, will need to reconsider at 2 this afternoon. But there's always the scotch. And the Balcones Baby Blue and True Blue. Vodka in a pinch.

One thing that show was not is amazing. They sounded muddy and the set list was meh.
