I am not kidding, it actually snowed here yesterday in Texas. I was at work and everyone was going on and on about it and I was laughing because they were calling it a blizzard and wondering if school would be cancelled. Being from Canada I have seen TONS of snow and am all over it.
Well that all changed when I was on my way home and it was snowing big huge flakes of light fluffy packing snow. I came in and woke the kids up (it was 8:30) and we went out and played in it. Some was sticking to the grass and the cars were covered in it. We made a snowman - ok, he was only 3 inches tall, but still a snowman nonetheless.
I realized that the last time I saw snow was 6 years ago so I was as excited as the kids if not more. I called my family to tell them about the snow and they were less than enthusiastic.
My nephew told me he was up to his knees in it and for some reason did not seemed thrilled about our "blizzard". lol
Spencer informed me he was going to shovel the driveway when he came home from school the next day. I am sure he would not have made the offer if we lived in Canada. Sydney ate every snow flake she could find and was surprised that it was not salty, I guess because it was white like salt. Peyton and the boys threw snowballs and had a ball.
The next morning it was all gone, but still freezing. Everyone got up and immediately ran to the window to see if the snow was there. Caden was convinced that it was going to snow again tonight.
It was only 22 degrees with the windchill. I dressed Spencer up warm and we went to catch the school bus.
I was wondering where everyone was and then spotted the cars. The other parents had driven to the bus stop in their warm cars and waited until the bus came to let the kids out. Come on, I mean the bus stop is only a few houses away and they drove??? Only in Texas would you see that. I had to laugh, then I ran in the house and turned on the fireplace to warm up.
