STORM IMPACTS IN THE PANHANDLES...SEVERE RISK IN THE SOUTH | Affiliate Forecaster ConvectiveWeather in Wylie, Texas posted this report to their facebook page regarding impacts of the storm in the Texas panhandle. In addition, this report on Convective's main site details the overnight tornado and severe weather risk being produced by this storm in southern Texas and the southern Mississippi Valley.

"Light to moderate snow continues across the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles this evening. Although snow rates are generally in the light to moderate range, very strong winds associated with the low are resulting in low visibilities, especially north and west of Amarillo. Numerous roadways have been shut down across the Panhandles due to the very hazardous conditions. 

Overnight, the heaviest snowfall will probably occur north of the Amarillo area; however, an additional 1-2 inches is still possible by early Tuesday morning. The big winners, thus far, have been Dalhart and Boise City which have picked up several inches of snow. The Boise City area has seen at least 6-8 inches of snow with probably a few 10+ inch report."

The road manages to endure the hailstorm looks like the concrete sealer they've used for it is really effective and durable. The road maybe able to make through even during the winter, it should so that, I could watch the game peacefully.

Maybe you could use some of automated conveyor system in case you have trouble getting rid of these mess during winter season. You can really count on this stuff.
