I love snow in Texas…mainly because I know it will be gone tomorrow. I swear I’m still scarred from the four winters we spent in Iowa. By the end of our time there, I would get seriously depressed every time it snowed. Snow in the Midwest starts in December and doesn’t leave until April.
I heard one of the Fox newscasters actually use the words, “blizzard conditions” and “treacherous.” Are you kidding me?!?! Yes, we got a couple of inches of snow, but that does not qualify it as a blizzard, for crying out loud. Let me tell you about blizzards… (she obviously has lived in the south her entire life!)
The other thing that puzzled me is the parents freaking out and not wanting their kids to go outside to play because it was still snowing. Seriously? You realize this snow will be completely gone by this time tomorrow, and probably won’t be back for at least another year. Let your kids play! In Iowa, if it got up to 20 degrees, it was warm enough to play in the snow.
My kids played in the snow (after they found their long-lost mittens)! Here are a few pics that captured the joy:
Meghan’s friends, Sydney & Amanda, came over to play. They scraped the snow off the driveway and put it in a box to take in the backyard to make snowballs.
That would be a Fruit Face! Grapes for eyes, a lime for a nose, and a banana for a mouth – and wet firewood for arms.
