Ice Storm Hits Austin!

News flash:
Dateline: Austin, TX
Monday February 25, 2003.

Last night Austin got hit with 1"-3" of freezing rain, sleet and ice. Most businees were closed until at least noon. Schools are closed for the day. But some brave folks tried to go out anyway.

Watch a nice new Hummer H2 tackle the hill at Oakwood Cove:

Start,   working,   end of the road
The results...  and later that morning.
Why you don't drive on ice.

The weather station is back-up
