Local weather forecasters including Pete Delkus, CBS11Larry, and your mama predicted that sleet would rain down upon us all last night, and it sure did. (For my fellow Native Texans, "sleet," of course, in meteorological terms is the petulant baby that is created when snow and rain do The Nasty.) A thin layer of ice greets us all this morning, and in Dallas, this can only mean one thing: Everyone, it's time to shut down everything until it hits 70 degrees again. Do not step outside. Do not open your curtains. Do not put on Daytime Clothes. Just shut. It. Down. And if you have the luxury to do so, please panic.

Welcome to #SLEETSHOW2015. I hope you enjoy the freaked-out Facebook status that your aunt already posted at 5 a.m. of her iced-over car windshield. And won't it be fun to see what over 600 schools write down when it's time to record their reason for closing? Will they write, "Got kinda scared of clouds," or "Too cold for flip flops," or simply, "SCREAM NOISE!!!" Can't write "snow day" because there's no dang snow. Our kids are staying home from school having a Sleet Day, for crapssakes. That's not even a thing. More »
