Valentine's day weekend in Texas was met with an unexpected winter storm warning, put into effect by the National Weather Service. Shortly after lovers took to the gram to display their love and affection, Sunday night was met with freezing temperatures, iced over roads, and rolling blackouts.
Do 512, one of Austin's premiere information sources on events in the city, shared a photo of icy downtown Austin.
While many are scrambling for firewood and waiting hours in line at HEB for water and non-perishable foods, there are a few optimistic creatives in the city who are making the best out of this icy situation.
In order to make light of an unpredictable situation, Good Music Influence decided to check in on some of the artists, creatives and CEOs in Austin, TX to see how they've turned the day around into their own personal winter wonderland!
Dashawn Daniels, musical artist and one half of the Austin-based duo "Tribe Mafia", came out to gaze at the snow-lit sky in a fashionable, medium-brown, men's peacoat, matched with a scarf that gave us the iconic "Burberry Tartan" pattern feel.
Make sure to tune in to Tribe Mafia music for new music and videos!
Model and DJ "TJ The DJ" stepped out looking clean in her teal green, 2-piece hooded "Faith" sweat suit from the new JeanLuc & Co. collection. However, it looks like her 4-legged BFF "Sadie Bunz" decided to sit this photoshoot out. (We don't blame her).
Known for her iconic Austin, TX streetwear style, TJ the DJ was able to pull off this winter look effortlessly. Check her out online for upcoming events in Austin, TX (post winter storm).
Down in the neighboring city of San Antonio, TX, we checked in with DJ, Music Blogger and Event curator, Aurora Ramirez.
She shared loving photos of her beautiful family with her Facebook fans, playing in the snow with little smiles all around.
Though the winter storm caused her to have to postpone her upcoming R&B Love Fest, you can still tap in with her platform on Instagram for updates on the rescheduled event. Also, check them out for upcoming events in 2021!
Professional Dancer, Choreographer and Model Jillian the Rose, also took to the gram to express her positivity through the storm with an icy freestyle. She hit the snowy fields of Austin, TX, sporting a white camo, crop wind breaker; also from the new JeanLuc & Co. signature collection.
