Off Topic: What happened to Texas?

So.... I thought I lived in Texas.... but we just had a record breaking snow fall!! 9 inches is the greatest amount of snowfall here in one day in recorded history and it happened yesterday!

Now I know some of my Canadian friends are thinking... ha! 9 inches... no biggy. But you have to remember that snow is so rare here that none of us own snow shovels, snow boots, salt trucks, ice scrapers.... sleds.... ear muffs!!! Its cold for us and we're upstream without a paddle. (And yes we did use a blow-up mattress today as a sled to slide down the side of a highway embankment.... sledding Texas style :)

Plus power is going in and out here so I apologize if I miss a few posts... not sure when we will have constant power back!

Anyway... here is a pic of my dog Audrey running in the snow with my hubs! I hope everyone is staying warm! Brrrrrr.....


  1. I know what you mean, we've had more snow here in TN than I can remember in the last 15 years. I hope your power stays on and I hope you stay warm! Enjoy the snow though - it's fun for a little while :)

  2. LOL I'm just visualising you on a blow up mattress sledding.. Stay safe and Warm. xx

  3. It is really hot in Singapore and I may not know what I am saying but I don't mind a bit of snow now.

  4. Oooh...I feel your pain. It freezing here in southwest Florida and I hear there flakes spotted in Pensecola. When I lived (briefly) in Houston, there was a dusting of snow that February. They say if it's going to happen there, it'll happen in February.

    Stay warm!


  5. just a small smirk....ah errr, I mean, comment ROFL
    Up here in Ontario we haven't had a 9" snowfall at one time....all winter! Stay warm & enjoy!
