Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Snow day!

video Little Bit couldn't resist getting out in the snow as soon as possible. So, I bundled her up and she promptly said "I can't put my arms down!" Then, she giggled fiercely. :) The boys got out of school early and what normally takes me about 20 minutes to do took at least an hour. In about the span of a mile, I saw five cars spun off the road. I was going about 25 and people were zooming past me. Oddly enough, they spun out. Get a grip people. The kids are now out having a snowball fight. They're going to be wet and cold when they come in. So, I better start a fire and get the hot chocolate going.

    Yea - Denton looked beautiful - if you looked at it falling and at the beginning, now the roads are just nasty.

    I was supposed to have a midterm today, but our professor's a Nazi and refused to cancel the test, so I drove all the way up to Denton and by the time I got there, TWU closed the campus. So, then I got to drive all the back home! Glad I left when I did - it's already gotten a lot worse and I, too, saw a lot of accidents back around 1pm.

    Crazy stuff! Hope the kids enjoy it!

    What you're having today is the same crap we've had up here west of Chicago basically every day since early December . . . difference is, of course, if I remember correctly, you folks have essentially zero snowplows, road salt, etc. with which to function through it.

    My brother lives near Plano; one Christmas when we were visiting (2000?), the DFW metroplex had a freak 5-6-in. snowfall the day we were to leave, and the drive to Love Field to catch a plane was much more harrowing than ANY drive I've endured in a Chicago winter . . .

    I waited an hour for the bridges to thaw and then headed on in. There was lots of left over carnage until you got further southeast, then it wasn't so bad.
