    A non-exhaustive list of what is closed for due to the storm:

    HRSB
    My work
    SMU until at least 11:00 (I believe that the freezing rain caused hell to freeze over)

    More to come!

    Our hill was a sheet of ice. In 1st gear crawling and the ABS was going NUTS.

    Hwy 118 had caked ice on parts of it, left lane was terrible so we stayed in the right lane.

    At work now.
