It's cold out there!

Disclaimer- For any non-family readers, this may seem odd to get worked up over snow, but I live in Texas and have for 94% of my life . 'Nough said. :)
I'm so ready for spring, but according to ol' Phil, it's not time yet. Today, we woke up to a white lawn. The snow wasn't supposed to start until this afternoon, a reminder that God is in charge, not the weathermen. It's supposed to snow all day and partly into tonight. Both these pics were taken at 10:45 am, and the snow hasn't stopped yet (it's now 1:15 pm)
School let out early today and canceled tomorrow (they expect this to melt and then freeze into hazardous conditions). Sadly, that also postponed the Valentine party I've been planning for Beth's class.
When the kids get up from naps, we'll bundle up and head out to play. I'll take lots more pictures and measure how deep it is. I guess since this is such a rare occassion in our neck of the woods, I should enjoy it. I may even be wishing for it when our temps are in the 100s this summer.

Geez! I need to check and see if we are going to get snow! I just know it's cold and has rained all day long for 2 days now. I don't know if it's cold enough for snow. Anything under 60 is cold to me!!! LOL

I am so jealous for TWO reasons:

1. The beautiful snow!
2. That Beth doesn't have to go to school tomorrow.

Enjoy the day off with the kiddos--I'll be at school....with my kids who have gone completely bonkers this week!!!!!!!!!!

After talking with you and the kiddos on the phone (you were all totally excited about the snow) I understand your "Texas" mindset. We are so ready for spring too.
Beth informed me: "It is 6:53 and still snowing". She is such her mother's child. Can't wait to see pictures of the snow development.
