How Texans Deal With Ice, Snow and “Cold”
Irish comedian John Bowman, who opened for Lewis Black at the Majestic in 2012, likes to make fun of Texans and cold weather. “You guys don’t understand viscosity,” he said during his Majestic routine, and we all know he’s absolutely right—Texans and slippery roads don’t mix well.
Today was one of those “cold” days that cause school closures in Texas while kids are walking to school in Minnesota, and social media was filled with allusions to what a bunch of wimps we are.
“When whole city shuts down because of one small ice storm. #texansterrifiedofcold,” wrote artist/musician Shan Blam.
“I’m gonna slap the first person that says ‘it’s too hot’ once summer comes,” wrote La Prensa editor/actress Nina Durán on Facebook. But my personal favorite is this King of the Hill clip posted on Facebook by Ada Mariela Ortega, Regional Press Secretary and Latino Media Coordinator at the Texas Democratic Party (and a former Current intern).
Thanks, Adita. You made our day a little warmer with laughter.
