Those of you who live in places where the fire hydrants have six-foot poles topping them will find it laughable that anything in Texas can be called a “snowpocalypse.” If you are used to something, that makes it easier to deal with, and Texas is definitely not used to snow and ice. I’ve lived in Texas almost eighteen years and have only seen snow here five times. Incredibly, four of those events occurred in the last four years, including last year’s hundred-year storm. It’s a good thing we’ve got global warming or there’d be a lot more snowy days. Based on evidence from the previous “disasters,” most Texans would not survive the state turning into Wisconsin.
