I wouldn't be considered a good little Texan if I didn't make a post about the recent ice storm. Thursday night it started raining and as the temperatures dropped, the ice started adding up.
By Friday morning it was FRIGID and a winter wonderland in our little corner of Texas.
The picture of our house is all ice and a little bit of sleet. At this point we hadn't gotten any snow.
The next morning we woke up to a beautiful dusting of snow that made it all the more pretty.
I love snow.
Tay Bird's first time experiencing the ice.
Hays is just like his momma and LOVED the ice. When he woke up Friday morning he came running in to me to tell me it snowed. He was thrilled. He has a perma-smile in the pictures below.
The ice was bad but nothing crazy. I was amazed by the fact North Texas had maybe 3 snow plows. What in the world?!?! The main highways getting into Ft. Worth AND Dallas were at a stand still the majority of the weekend.
On Sunday night I finally got out to get a few groceries for the week. This is what I found:
That was more than 60 hours AFTER the storm rolled through. No milk, no meat, no produce. Craziness.
I was boycotting the grocery run before the storm. We had the same hype 2 weeks earlier and didn't get a drop of frozen precipitation. Evidently going against the norm brought me the ice and snow I desperately wanted.
Now, Missouri, YOU are making me home sick. All the pictures of snow....sigh. Please don't disappoint Hays and I when we get into town in 2 weeks! Please.
