Does Dallas own any snowplows? Just staring out my window at I-35 and watching cars run into medians. Not trying to be condescending, curious if they have any because I’ve never seen one.

Yes, they bought a bunch when the ice storm hit during the Super Bowl in 2011. Before that there was only one at DFW.

Nope, not many snowplows and no dedicated salt trucks. Our city isn’t prepared for this type of weather but given climate change and this weather becoming a more common occurrence I bet we’ll be better prepared in a couple of years. But you also can’t plow Dallas snow, it’s more ice than snow.

Try Houston I think they just had rain this week. Avoid going North.

There are some, can confirm. But not many. Much cheaper and easier to wait the 24 hours max until the sun is out and everything melts

This might’ve worked until last year

1) AFAIK TxDOT would be responsible for plowing on 35E, not the city of Dallas. And I don’t see any way that they wouldn’t have plows

2) Wouldn’t plowing be a bad idea anyway, when there’s potentially a half-inch layer of ice under the snow, and the snow is high enough to potentially help with traction but not too high to interfere with moving through it?

Interesting

And

No the snow would melt then freeze into the ice making it thicker. Snow plows have a dispenser dropping rock salt behind them to help melt the ice faster and create traction for cars. Snow under your tires won’t help w traction, it turns your wheels into skis. Thicker the wheels the more slide you’ll get

We have a few, not enough. There are some uniqueness here like if it's snowy or icy stay home, we simply have too many overpasses and take hail warnings seriously. 😁

I’ve done dry January and a lot of weight melted off. I was already shooting to keep it going through to March. For super lean people (borderline Instagram models), do you still drink alcohol after your 20s? I remember a male stripper in Vegas told me he only drank a shot of vodka once a year 😂 and that was the extent of his drinking, but he looked great.
