Oh Snow You Didn't!

Yesterday was a special day in Dallas, Texas. We experienced a record-breaking 12.5 inches of snow in a 24-hour period!

It was so beautiful! Check out our house. Our front yard was a solid white blanket. Usually there is a bright, full bush to the left of our house entrance...but it was smothered in snow.

I don't think anyone in the metroplex anticipated this kind of snowfall. Our neighborhood was just one of thousands to get snow, and we were lucky enough to keep our electricity!

I read today that every single state in the US has some snow accumulation - including Florida, Louisiana, and even Hawaii (on mountain tops - but hey, it counts!). That. is. crazy.

Yesterday Andreas and I worked from home. The roads were mostly just slushy, but the prospect of working while watching the snow fall all day was far more appealing that sitting in a cubicle! It seriously snowed big, beautiful flakes all day long. It was amazing. And at lunch we got to make this guy!

Can you believe this is my first legit snowman? I think I remember my Mom and Dad having a picture of me when I was pretty little with an equally little snowman, but I'm sorry to say I don't remember making him.

Andreas took a break from throwing snowballs at me to pose with our new friend.

I know that snow can be a nuisance, but I really enjoyed this short stint of snowfall. It was gorgeous and fun, and it did a great job of getting me amped up for the Winter Olympics!

Hope everyone is enjoying watching the opening ceremonies tonight!
