How could people in Texas not be prepared? Ice and snow and sub-freezing temperatures are not unknown there. I always have a scraper in my car when there is a chance of sub-freezing temperatures, and a can of lock deicer is a permanent resident of my coat pocket (used it just the other day on the lock on the mailbox). I also carry a bumbershoot in the car 52 week/yr. (Current temp is 17, but temps in the 40s and thunderstorms are forecast for Monday)
