As anyone in Austin knows, we woke up to a horrible, wintry mix this morning. Ice on the roads, terror on the highways, spin outs all around — it's been nuts.
Oh wait, no we didn't. That was two weeks ago. Today, it's just cold and kind of gray so that means that all schools in the Austin Independent School District, Austin Community College, oh, and every office in the city of Austin is closed today. Shut down. Done. Not working.
AISD is already garnering collective eye rolls for preemptively announcing that schools would be closed today in the wake of this horrible weather. But one Austinite (we assume it's an Austinite as requests for an identity have gone unfulfilled) has created the appropriately named Twitter handle @AISDclosures to illustrate Austin's collective inability to deal with any kind of weather.
Here are just a few our favorites:
Bad news! 7 ice cubes just fell out of our faculty mini-fridge. District delayed by 45 minutes.— AISDclosures (@aisdclosures) February 7, 2014
AISD is committed to preventing working parents of small children from pursuing their careers. Classes delayed 3 hours.— AISDclosures (@aisdclosures) February 7, 2014
STAY PUT! As you can see, there is absolutely no ice on the ground. BUT ALL INDICATIONS ARE THAT WEATHER. Still closed.— AISDclosures (@aisdclosures) February 7, 2014
Everyone is meeting at the Crown and Anchor at 11:45am. Shit. Wrong account.— AISDclosures (@aisdclosures) February 7, 2014
And it only gets better from there. Make sure to keep up to date with all of AISD's fake closings here.
