RUSH HOUR—



Rockdale may not be Austin but the intersection of US 77 and FM 908 (Cameron-Main) intersection just doesn’t look this at 8 a.m. on a weekday morning. It did Friday as a two to threeinch snowfall shut down the town for several hours. Police had to re-direct traffic one block north until hills on the highway could be cleared of ice. Classes were dismissed at area schools and many businesses closed, including financial institutions. A 5-inch snowfall was recorded in February, 2010.
