Another Snow Day and I am Smiling

Well, actually, it's really an ice day. Freezing rain and ice. Not pretty. Not something the kids can play in. 

So for the second day, we are stuck at home. We have school work to keep ourselves busy (homeschoolers don't get many snow days!) and logs for the fire.

I refuse to complain about any of it. I will wear a smile on my face and be grateful.

Why? Because I know in a very few short months, my weather will be like this:




And my weather will stay like this for months and months and months.

So today I appreciate the ice and even the sand they dump all over the streets to try to keep the roads a little safe. (If anyone in Dallas gov't is reading, the sand does not work. At all. The only thing it does is throw mud on our cars. You may want to consider just a little bit of salt.)

OK. Time to throw another log on the fire.

You guys were off yesterday? We are off today, but yesterday we were out & about. And, I'm looking at those 100s and thinking, "Is it July yet..."

Good point about the weather. I just HATE being cold. I'd rather be hot ANY day. Good thing I live here, huh?

Good point - we will be sweating before long!

We have a cold snap heading our way too ~ with winds and the possibility of snow coming in from Russia!! We will get the cold winds, but probably lots of rain instead of snow :(
Hope the kids are enjoying the snow you are getting :)
love,

I would take the sunshine and hot weather over this any day. I hate winter. More than anything, it's because I'm sick from October to May. Once summer arrives, I'm healthy as can be!

Lisa, I'd take your 102 over my -2 any day :)

I'm very, VERY jealous.

OK - time to throw another tree on the fire :)

I wish I had your optimistic outlook! We have had only had temps above freezing once in the last 6 weeks. I totally have the winter blues.

Carol said...

I think we should house swap in the summer.

Those temperatures and I could be best friends for a week or two.

it's funny, lisa... every time dallas gets bad weather, we in the ohio valley can take it to the bank that we will, too!!! it's that jet stream that come out of the gulf that gets us both:/
do you all still have ice, or has it melted, yet??? i hope you are keeping warm, too, regardless:)
much love,
dani
