It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Well, as far as Texas goes, that is.



I
woke up this morning to below-freezing temperatures and scenes like THIS. Some schools have been delayed and some have closed altogether with the sleet and rain from last night and snowfall from this morning making the roads slicker than us hot-weather Abileneans are used to.

The cats are enthralled, peering out the window at all the falling snow and the whiteness outside. Heck, I'M enthralled. The dogs were pretty curious as I brought them out for their morning "rounds" but the biting wind wasn't as bad for them as it was for me, so we quickly retreated back into the house.

So, as usual, I go over to the computer and start monitoring the weather radars, once again, something I NEVER did in Malaysia.

I woke up to 3 foot snow drifts! BRRRR It was odd, last night when it first started to snow it was thundering and lightning with it!

Stay warm and have a great day-Jeff

Hey Letti. Oh man, you guys have snow in Texas?! We keep having rain and we live in the snowbelt o_o. I'm waiting for snow because this rain is really crappy. Actually...I think it's freezing rain outside right now. So much worse >_>. Anyway, enjoy your snow because it could be a lot worse. =P

YOU GOT SNOW!!! YOU GOT SNOW !!!.

Hope your pipes don't freeze. That would be messy.

Oh and don't try to melt the ice by pouring hot water on it. It will freeze after and you;ll get MORE ICE!!!

Oh I'm not loaning you my show shovel. :)
