Texas

This is why we live in Texas


Steve and I went last weekend. We looked at the pigs and cows and baby animals. We also went to an equestrian show.
Although parts were kind of boring we thought this was really cool

This is not why we live in Texas



This is what we woke up to Thursday morning. It kind of reminds me of Utah. Steve and I moved to Texas about a year and a half ago; apparently mother nature didn't get the memo.

Although, I really do have mixed feelings about the whole business. On one hand last February it was high 60's and I was planting our garden in frantic, thinking we'd missed our planting window. A part of me would really like to have the weather be mid 60's. On the other hand I think north Texas needs to stop whining and come to grips with the fact that it snows here. This is our 4th snow of the season. Maybe it's time for the city to invest, I don't know, in a snow plow. I would even go for some salt, anything to help remove the snow that doesn't use natural elements like the sun. But, it is gorgeous and it was all worth it because I came home to this cuteness



So, it snowed all night and this is what we found Friday morning


We think we got somewhere between 6-7 inches. No, it not like the storms out east, but for a place that acts like it never gets cold it's quite the storm.

  3. Heather you are awake way too early!
    But, yes, we did get quite a bit or snow. Right now I'm hoping my work will call and cancel or at least be okay with the fact that my car didn't make it out of the driveway this morning. We'll see.

  4. That is crazy you have that much snow. It hasn't snowed in Utah for quite a while now. Love the snowman's hair! :)
