The #AyDiosFrio18 hashtag dominated Twitter yesterday, as the winter storm blasted through central and southeast Texas.

    Tuesday's winter storm sent some people to jam-packed H-E-Bs, others scurrying around their kitchen to find a spatula to scrape ice off their cars and it motivated another bunch to head to Twitter, where the #AyDiosFrio18 hashtag was taking over timelines across the city.
