Deep in the Cold Heart of Texas
It’s the great flash freeze of December 2013.
And when this happens?
And even though, I work from home and don’t get any “ice” days. I do get to enjoy my kids and pets on their “ice”. It is amazing what one can accomplish during a lunch hour.
These two cuties never fail to amuse.
Cable lines, and no, our cable, nor electricity went out.
You can’t have an ice day without our furry friends. Clothed in love, and maybe embarrassed a bit, but hey, that’s okay. They were compensated for their troubles with lots of snuggles and treats.
Anna in her Santa hat. You think she is cute now; you should see her in her elf suit.
Salem in her ugly sweater.
Nothing says, “Texas”, more than sliding down the yard and driveway on a cardboard box top. Sleds? We don’t need no stinking sleds!
The girls had so much fun.
Hours upon hours of playing outside.
And that box top? Well, I found its remnants on the floor of the garage. It wasn’t pretty. May it rest in peace.
The flash freeze left color in full bloom.
And happy children.
This slick stuff has lasted four days and the store shelves are empty. But fear not, I bring tidings of good news….the icicles are finally starting to melt.
I guess we will stay on the map after all and we should be open soon, ya’ll.
