"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."

Snow in Austin

We're expecting a light snow tonight, perhaps a couple of inches up in the hills. This is not without precedent. The pattern of past snow events is peculiar and hard to characterize.

Update: Indeed we got some heavy snowfall, but it only lasted about two minutes.

However, measurable snow fell in Houston, and sure enough the denial sites are running with it.
