Now It's "A Debacle"?

While I was writing the DART item below, about 29 Friends of Unfair Park forwarded along the freshest of hot-off-the-press tweets from Sports Illustrated's Peter King:
I'm telling you: I-30 between Dallas + Fort Worth is a plow-less, snow-windswept moonscape. This is officially a debacle.
At this very moment, King and Mike Florio are spooning in a twin bed at the Comfort Suites Arlington on the Road to Six Flags.

Sounds like goldie locks...not too hot, not too cold, not too hard, not too soft.

I have yet to hear any whiners in hockey. Go Stars!

Debacle is good if it keeps the NFL away from any more "North Texas" super bowls.

I hope the highway isn't too bad. I have to drive to the liquor store sometime today. Apparently its against the law to stay sober on a day like today.

Good, hopefully all of this will keep the Super Bowl from ever coming back. Still amazed that the NFL apparently has more power than local, state or federal governments here.

No wonder the Okies left this God forsaken area. Talk about a minor league town in the middle of nowhere.

Watching everyone sledding at Flagpole Hill on the news and what I want to know is, where is everyone getting these sleds?

I wonder how ESPN feels about being in Fort Worth now. Totally out of the loop of what little is going on, and they're not even broadcasting outside anymore. At least Dallas has DART, those poor people stranded in Fort Worth can't even get to a mall!!! The train got me from Garland, to Northpark, Mockingbird Station and downtown yesterday.

What happened to "This is nothing. Where we live we walk to school uphill both ways in 20 foot snow drifts."

Whiny northerners....

Maybe I was fortunate. I drove up Plano Road to hike early this Morning at Spring Creek Nature Preserve, than down Central to my office at Fitzhugh. I took it easy, and really had no problem driving.

It was beautiful to watch the snow first thing. Actually walking on the paved part of the trail was the most hazardous part. I slipped and fell 3 times, before it dawned on me to walk in the grass. There was a sheet of ice on the pavement under the snow.

Anybody else remember the Chicago Heatwave of '95? Over 700 people dead because it got over 100 degrees for a while. People in Dallas laughed it up, saying we couldn't take the heat. But Chicagoans don't invest in A/C in every building, because how often does it get over 100 degrees?

Why would Dallas invest in a fleet of snowplows and salt trucks when it gets this much snow for maybe 7 days out of every 20 years? Personally, I'd prefer that the city doesn't waste my money on a fleet of plows....I can stand to sit at home for a few days every now and then. They've already wasted enough of my money on fake suspension bridges and a convention center hotel.

For those of us dumb enough to drive today....debacle sounds about right.

Governor Goodhair is too busy on the left coast to be bothered with overseeing the state.

Yes, I hate their money. Stay out, we don't need an economy.

I keep telling you, Okies are from Oklahoma, that's why they're called Okies.

Economic impact studies are inflated when it comes to sporting events and stadiums.

Love their money, love that they visit, love that they go home. I just hope this weather convinces them that they don't want to retire here.

I love the fact that they've replanted a bunch of pretty flowers in all the downtown bare spots in the last few weeks and made it look nice.

Too bad this week of ice just killed all of that.
