Speaking of ice...

We had the pleasure of freezing rain last night and now it's about 22 F. Since there's no such thing as a salt truck down here, this means that everyone in Central Texas should STAY HOME. (Almost everything's shut down anyway -- all the schools, most government, etc.).

Have some cocoa. Or cognac.

Help may be on the way. Last year at the annual meeting of the American Public Works Association held in Atlanta, I chaired a session devoted to "Sunbelt Snowfighting" that discussed cost-effective ways that road agencies could deal with snow and (particularly) ice at latitudes like Central Texas. New technologies of anti-icing and road weather information systems make improved winter highway operations possible. For more general information, see our website at
