It’s a rare occurrence, but today is officially a snow day in Austin, Texas. Last night, Austin Independent School District officials made the call to cancel all Dec. 8 classes “to ensure the safety of students and staff,” given the forecast of freezing temperatures and the potential for black ice on roads. AISD advises the community to follow its social media accounts to stay up-to-date on the situation. City offices and facilities will have a delayed opening time of 10 a.m. Capital Metro buses will be staying off of overpasses until 9 a.m. The University of Texas will also remain closed until 10 a.m. Stay safe, everyone!
