The storm is coming. Today is March 11 and we are subject to a winter weather advisory until 6 p.m. This means: the Dallas-Fort Worth area may see up to a tenth of an inch of sleet and snow. The risk is greater the further north you are. The National Weather Service expects winter mixing to begin any minute as precipitation moves east across the metro area. Around noon the big stuff will leave us and the snow should start. There is a possibility of icy conditions on the roads, so take it easy if you are driving. We will have a hard freeze overnight and you will wake up to temperatures between 20-20s. The afternoon will warm into the 50s; Sunday should be nice and sunny and in the mid 60s. Here is the full forecast from the NWS.
Dallas’ neighbors to the north are frustrated with the Silver Line. This is the DART rail line that will connect Plano and DFW airport. Part follows an old freight line through Far North Dallas near Hillcrest Road, where it bumps into hiking and biking trails and plenty of backyards. Neighbors showed up at a town hall meeting on Thursday, where they raised concerns about flooding and pedestrian safety. DART says the crossings will meet City of Dallas and Federal Railroad Administration standards.
Le Creuzot joins the group asking the Court to block the transgender directive. Gov. Greg Abbott effectively deputized Texans to report families of transgender children so the state could investigate whether their gender-affirming care amounted to “child abuse.” Public Prosecutor John Creuzot added his name to an amicus brief of 90 other criminal justice officials asking a court to block the order.

UNT Mean Green in the CUSA semi-finals. My alma mater passed the humble Rice yesterday to reach the semifinals of the Conference USA tournament. They will face the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, which they handled at the Superpit a few weeks ago. No other team in college hoops allows fewer runs than the Mean Green; we have limited our opponents to an average of 55.4 during the season. Say it with me now: CAWWWW!
