Want a sure-fire way to cause heads to explode in Austin, Texas? Mention "freezing" and "rain" in the same sentence.
I mean, come on, people. It's not like I'm from the frozen tundra of Drizzlandia, either, but light freezing rain (when the temperature was +60F yesterday) isn't the absolute worst weather calamity in the world. Your car isn't going to leap from the road and explode into flames. Call me crazy, but usually the current temperature has to be below freezing for, you know, freezing precipitation to be a problem.
And thusly ends my weather rant.
