I was on the south east side of San Antonio in Highland Hills...  my 
neighbor and I walked around, marveling in it all.  We got into 
snow-ball fight, after snow-ball fight.  Then, we got back to the house, 
got some coffee, and hear a 'noise' Bang! Clang! 

We looked at each other, we had a knowing grin, then filled a thermos 
each, got some lawn chairs and went to the top of the hill to watch the 
idiots in San Antonio try to stop their vehicles down at the bottom of a 
40 degree hill... covered in snow.

Called a wrecker friend of ours, and he just cleaned up that night.
