Gotta LOVE the Texas Weather!
I can’t believe that it’s taken me over a week to post these pictures of our BIG snow. Last Thursday when the girls got up, it was snowing!!! The girls were so excited! That’s when I made the decision to CANCEL school for the day. That’s another good thing about home schooling----I get to play superintendent!
The girls couldn’t wait to get outside and start having fun.
Building a snowman…
Making snow angels....
And having snowball fights!
Thawing out with a nice cup of hot cocoa...
Unfortunately, that’s the last warm thing the girls had. Our electricity went out Thursday night and we “roughed it” for about 48 hours.
No lights, no television, no computers, and NO HEAT! We all slept in the same bed and did a lot of snuggling for two nights. By Saturday night the girls had decided that they were heading to a hotel if our power wasn’t restored by bedtime! They were tired of being cold and ready for a warm meal. I’ve never been so glad to see an electric company truck in my entire life. They fixed the problem and we were “back in business.” I remember looking at the thermostat about ½ hour after our electricity came back on. 58 degrees never felt SO warm! We still had snow on the ground in some areas YESTERDAY!
Amazingly, I made these pictures yesterday. With temperatures close to 70 degrees, Doodlebug played outside in summer clothes…that she obviously picked out herself. lol
Snow is in the forecast again for tomorrow! Gotta love this Texas weather!
