The Dallas area has had icy roads the past couple of days. Since the average Dallas area person doesn't know how to drive in icy conditions, days like these typically shut down the area.
I mean, hardly any ice and several larger school districts closed their doors yesterday. What's that about? Most were smarter and just did a delayed 10am start to allow for the slower traffic.
I had to drive in it yesterday and didn't think it was bad at all. However, the sand trucks were out in full force. On days like these, those sand trucks have to go out and put that nasty stuff on the ground that makes your car look like an utter mess.
It looks like I haven't washed my car in years. Layer upon layer of caked on nastiness from the roads. The Car Washes must love days like this as everyone in the area will need to wash their cars.
Here's what a turn lane looked like yesterday morning (And yes, I was stopped at a red light), along with some icy pansies in my front yard.
