Help! I'm Lost! I Don't Know Where I Am!

So this morning, we awoke to a peculiar sight. Being from Texas, Boo having never lived anywhere else, this is not something we are accustomed to.


Lots and lots of the fluffy white stuff. Not hail, not sleet, but ACTUAL SNOW!!! About 4 inches of it so far, and there is more to come. School was not cancelled, which frankly shocked the bajeebers out of me, but since we live less than a mile from the school, I didn't really care.

Now, for all of you who are from up north, or from the mountain states, I'm giving you fair warning...prepare for a collective eye roll...NOW!

Here is the view of the front of our house. I would have blanked out the house number, but I figure, you're probably not going to try to track me down and hurt me...right?

This is the view from standing on the front porch, looking out. HOLY COW, RIGHT? No? Still not impressed? Yeah, really nothing compared to the feet of snow everyone else is getting, but this is the first accumulation we have had since moving here. That's right, people 3 1/2 years...and we finally get our first real snowfall!

The view of my street. It's beginning to look a lot like...Valentine's day?

A family tradition growing up (in Ohio, where we got snow) was to listen to "Suzy Snowflake" by Rosemary Clooney right after the first snowfall. I got to play that for the first time for most of my children. I don't think they were impressed, but dangit, I was ecstatic! Yay SNOW!


P.S. Blogger is being kind of lame, so I'm sorry if the text is all kinds of screwed up...I really tried.

Blogger IS lame.
That looks really pretty! I swear, this weird weather is all because of Global, climate change. LOL.

I am in TX too and this is the most snow my 2 little ones have ever seen. We had snow one other day when they were 3 and 1 (they are 5 and 3 now) but they don't remember. Other than that, nothing!

Wasn't that so cool?! I loved the great big, fat flakes. Sarah was so excited that she dropped down and made a snow angel at the school after we took Hailey to her class. Yes, they're snow-deprived. I really think that we need to move back to Boise for some more real snow- actually I guess we'd probably have to move to Pocatello or Rexburg for that. But, you know how we are in Texas, it warmed up and most of our snow is gone now. p.s. I love that you have this blog now!!!
