The Weather Outside is Frightful

It's going to be a balmy-for-January 52 degrees F in DC today. In Texas, however, it's a whole different story; a storm is blasting most of the state with unusually harsh winter weather. The high temperatures in Dallas and Houston will be 33 and 35, which isn't all that bad, but both cities are also being whacked with sleet and freezing rain, which is. More than 160 flights have been canceled at DFW, which makes me glad Shuaib left for Malaysia yesterday.

This kind of weather is quite unusual for the region. During my 4 years at Rice, I saw snow precisely once, and it was some pretty paltry precipitation.
