It’s been a rough few days. Check out my poor little fountain.
This is a very rare thing where I live.
Update: More photos from MSNBC’s Photoblog.
We are expecting the coldest weekend in Austin in over a decade. I know that to some of my readers from Sweden, Alaska, the South Pole or Jupiter this is nothing. Well I don’t care. It’s notable enough for me to post. I had to take out my huge crazy winter coat that I never wear and I’m saving for the next Ice Age… so I can walk 25 meters from the parking garage to the office building.
As a favor to reader Eli Seidner, who practically got on his knees and begged me to do it, I left a bucket of water outside. Turns out that if you get water down below certain as of now undetermined temperature, it turns into ice. Ice! Hard to believe.
