Last night, the Polar Vortex took its toll on Austin. Locked inside our houses, many of us were forced to bake cookies and drink Hot Toddys. We cowered away from our frost covered windows. And this morning, we awoke to see our lawns and motorways blanketed in thick layers of snow. In case I don’t make it out of this blizzard alive, I want the world to see the horrors that Central Texas has had to endure.
Many woke up to find their yards destroyed, covered in sheets of ice and snow…
…and their belongings decimated.
Unable to find direction in the white-out, many Austinites were trapped in snow-filled forests.
With our winter harvests frozen, how will we find food?
Scared and alone, animals were left to fend for themselves.
With many braving the Arctic Tundra to find a suitable spot to pee.
But like the wise Rhianna said, “We found love in a hopeless place.”
Will we survive and make it to the 70-degree temps this weekend? Send prayers.
