The Arctic Blast.. or.. Snowfall in Texas

OK.. so .. I got all up and showered and ready for my first day of gym class.. along with my other classes...and Blondie came out of her room and said.. "You might wanna look outside before you go any further." So.. I looked outside and was floored.. we had actual SNOW!! OK..now before ya'll yankees go all "You don't know what snow is" on me.. remember its all relative...lol.. we had SNOW!! HOOOGE flakes!!

Now.. before yall start laughing.. there was about an inch of ice under the snow.. and we wound up with about 2 inches all total.. and some very apologetic weather forecasters.. cause they ALL missed it... but all in all it was a nice snowy morning.. This afternoon was ok to get out and I did some errands.. got some shopping done.. and even went to Kohl's.. which apparently.. some people think is the mother ship.. I thought Homo Depot was...

Now we have slush and water on the road.. which with the 20 something degress tonight.. I am sure will turn out to be a really cool sheet of ice for the morning commute..

While watching the news this morning.. cause ya know.. its all news about "The Arctic Blast" lol.. yeah yeah.. what can I say.. we need more excitement down here... but what I learned was.. Texans REALLY should just sit home and watch tv when it ices and snows.. cause they are idiots when they get out on the road...

Stay tuned for more details..

I've never driven on snow or ice, but I hear it's tough.

Ooh, pretty... We didn't get any snow or ice. Thank goodness, because Huntsville gets enough ice every year to make people think they know how to drive on it.

Scary! I just stay at home. Cheaper to take a day off than wreck my car.
