Snow! In Texas?

          Well, inevitably we get one or two good snow storms here in North Texas every year or so. Yesterday’s snowfall was record breaking, though. Something like 9 inches in one day!

          In our school district, kids attended regular classes yesterday because though the flakes were falling and temperatures were chilly, the snow was not causing hazardous road conditions. When Ethan got home from school he and Greg started creating some snow art for the front yard.

          Following a snowy drive home from a speaking engagement in Carrollton, I came home to help with final touches. What do you think of our snowcowboy?

          After dark yesterday the snow kept falling and temperatures dropped making road conditions dangerous, so the kids have a Snow Day today! Needless to say we are taking it easy, had a late breakfast, hanging out in our PJs and making plans to go play in more of the flaky white stuff soon.
