Brrrr!!!

While parts of California, Arizona and pretty sure Florida, are having some respite from the snow and cold, North Texas is being pelted with warnings of

ICE STORM!!!
Ice can slick up roads to dangerous levels, ground planes and strand cars on overpasses. In short, NOT FUN!

We had no seminary or school today; which is indicative of how dangerous the roads are (our school district has not closed their school until today in years). We spent the day doing laundry and just relaxing... (I mean pjs & winter socks under blankets relaxing) Aaahh... (I even managed to squeeze in a nap, yay!)

NO seminary again tomorrow as our warning extends to tomorrow AM. We don't know about another "snow day" though...

Charlie and I (he's off today, so such a blessing; we're all home!) got some soups and other provisions to keep us comfortable today like chips, chocolate angel food cake, berries, and microwaveable dishes (things we can eat while we are cozy in our blankets!) :-D.

Check these out:



We may not have an all-out snow fest like in other states, but we have, icy rain!!! This is in my patio; marvel at my "coated" table and my "sprinkled" herb pot.

I can't wait to take pictures of my trees again tomorrow morning! (Charlie wouldn't let me take pictures now...) :-(

How's the weather where you are?

That is sooo one of the things I miss about growing up in Alaska! Those days when everyone just stays cozy and warm, enjoys good food, and while it is cold outside the warmth of the family melts any chill to bring about the warmest of warm memories! Sounds like you guys had a great day! Our weather is fine, after all it is AZ. The only person with any complaint is Jayden, of course he is a chihuahua, and prefers 100 degree weather to begin with.

I surprisingly love the cold weather, too!

Don't knock the cold weather. LISD finally figured out that, no, children really can't stand freezing weather.

Hooray for ice!

Anne: We did have a great day; and ditto to how cold weathers bring warm memories, it's just wonderful! :-D

Lisa: LISD's learning; hopefully, they'll be better at it next year... (crossed fingers!)
