Hair Balls stayed up until 2 a.m. last night waiting for the much-ballyhooed snow as if it were Christmas Eve. This morning we woke up to nothing but a thin layer of ice covering the Montrose, far less exciting than the 1-2 inches that had been predicted to fall throughout the week.

What with all those warnings for our plants, pre-Armageddon runs on our grocery stores and Mayor Annise Parker basically shutting the city down, you'd think we were in the midst of hurricane season, not facing a tiny midwinter cold front in the middle of winter.

However, Hair Balls still has hope, so if you've got a dusting of snow on the ground, we want to see your pictures. Icicles, bad traffic, downed trees, etc. Please drop your weather-related pics into our Flickr pool. And be safe out there. TxDot is reporting that bridges and some roads will be slick at least until noon. Give you a good excuse to sleep in.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
