Winter White

We woke to winter white this morning!
While it is nothing, compared to what much of the country is experiencing, it means our part of the country is pretty much shut down.
There is a layer of ice under much of the snow.

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport was closed earlier this morning for the first time since 9/11.  Some flights are now beginning to resume.
Schools, universities, and many government offices are closed.

However, if you are a Packer fan, your team has safely arrived at Cowboy Stadium for Media Day.
Four buses, carrying the team, were escorted to the stadium by a Department of Transportation sand truck!
The Steelers will have their turn in front of the cameras a little later today.
They most likely think it is ridiculous that a few inches of snow and sub-zero wind chills converts a bustling metroplex into a ghost town.
They are also probably a little disappointed they were not here last week while we enjoyed Spring-like sunshine and highs in the upper 70's.

It is a good day to stay inside!

Yikes, what a hard winter we are all having! Looks like this one is going to miss us for a change. Stay warm!

Looks like you got it this time! And that layer of ice under snow is NO FUN! We are just getting rain. Stay in and be warm and safe!

Sounds like the weather we had here a few weeks ago, Ice then snow. Wonderful to play in but to drive, nada...

Hope you all are staying warm.

very pretty. I would like to get another small snow. My girls are buried under it in the NE though! Scary!

Yes, Jennifer, I live in one of the suburbs north of Dallas. We moved here almost 12 years ago. Previously, we lived in Dallas (Lakewood and Swiss Avenue Historic District) for about 15 years.
