Vehicles as far as you can see in both directions.

Interstate 30 is a mess right now after at least seven crashes out there in the last hour. Two of those crashes have included multiple 18-wheeler trucks. All but one of them are on the westbound side between Stateline Avenue and the Cowhorn Creek overpass, but traffic is also backed up on the eastbound side as people are slowing down to look at what's going on the other side of the road.

We recommend that you take an alternate route for a while as DPS works to clear these vehicles out of the roadway. Otherwise, you're probably going to wind up sitting in traffic for a while.

Yesterday we told you about an opportunity to create sculptures for downtown TXK using found-objects and working with George Toblowsky to celebrate our rich culture and history.

Little did we know that call would produce such amazing ideas and finds! Our friends at Silvermoon on Broad have generously volunteered this amazing piece (a circa-1920 piano soundboard found in the ruins of a downtown building) to be used in a sculpture. It's PERFECT!

So, who can see it? What could be created?! Where does your imagination take you? Let us know if you have a vision!

I don't know who the genius was that decided that starting a road work project at the intersection of McKnight Rd and Pleasant Grove Rd at 7:30 AM on a School day (school starts at 7:45) didn't think it through. Traffic was backed up and there was total chaos trying to get kids to school and the workers were clueless that they were the cause of the problem...
