Excited Houston TV Stations Follow Ice Storm Like Advance of Radiation In Novel On The Beach

Ice may or may not be coming to Houston. Local TV stations, excited that something bad might happen, have been following the storm for days. 

In the novel On The Beach by Nevil Shute, a nuclear war has occurred. The radiation is creeping over the Earth and the only people left are in remote Australia. The book is about these few remaining folks waiting for the radiation to arrive.

The day-by-day tracking of the ice storm has reminded me of On The Beach.

Slowly… slowly…slowly…the terrible event approaches.
