It’s just a bit of cold and ice

2014.01 snowDear Houston,

I understand that we’ve set up the city in such a way that 5 minutes of rain can bring parts of the city to a halt. There are even days when I find it charming. And I understand that we really are not equipped for freezing temperatures, let alone freezing temperatures that are joined by liquid (which promptly freezes) falling from the sky.

And I’ve come to just accept it as the cost of living in Houston that we absolutely cannot drive in any condition that isn’t perfect sunlight and dry roads. It’s like that particular skill is erased from all brains upon relocation to this city.

But, I beg of you, please at least wait until the inclement weather is here to overreact.

That is all. You can go back to freaking out.
