    IS THIS WHAT THE ICE IN TEXAS DID?

     
    A blast of arctic air has rolled into the central U.S., touching off an ice storm that has grounded hundreds of flights in Texas. Air travel in New York and Newark was also slowed by heavy fog.

    Freezing rain is expected in North Texas tonight, coating roads, trees and power lines with a layer of ice at least 0.25 inch (0.6 centimeter) thick, according to the National Weather Service. The cold may also boost energy use.

    “Ice accumulations will create hazardous travel conditions on area roads, especially on bridges and overpasses,” the weather service said in a winter storm warning for Dallas and Fort Worth. “Ice accumulations may make road surfaces impassable at times through Friday afternoon.”

    Separate from the storm, heavy fog in and around New York City has added to the air delays. A dense fog advisory is place from northern New Jersey to Connecticut, including New York, until 6 a.m. tomorrow.

    American Airlines Inc. and its regional partner American Eagle have canceled 500 flights at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport today and tomorrow, according to an e-mail from Andrea Huguely, a company spokeswoman in Fort Worth.
