UPDATE: I just saw this come across Twitter – this is from WGNtv in the Motherland (aka Chicago), specifically Lake Shore Drive… CRAZY!!
So, I got the following super exciting pictures from my Dad this morning:
Isn’t that pretty awesome? Not going to lie, I’m pretty jealous… I like snow. I like snow days, I like excuses to use blankets and drink hot chocolate, and I like doing donuts in my car. Snow is pretty awesome.
Oh, and here was Hayley’s response when I forwarded the pictures (Oh how I love her.. Let me count the ways..):
“I need real objects for perspective. He needs to throw the cats in the snow.”
As for Houston, it’s pretty cold here too - I woke up to 19 degree chilliness! You may laugh, but it was 70 over the weekend – that’s a HUGE drop off in temperature. Truly, I’m not complaining; I kind of like the more chilly weather, though it loses its appeal when there is no snow involved.
What’s TRULY funny about the situation is that Hayley and I got some “Winter Freeze” notifications on our doors last night. Apparently people are going to drip their faucets non-stop and winterize their cars to survive the sub-freezing temperatures… BAHAHA! Do these sucker people seriously not know how to handle 20 degree weather? I mean, yeah… It’s cold, but REALLY?!
Oh, and they’ve instituted unannounced rolling blackouts… To protect the region from massive power failures… REALLY?!
How has the weather been for some of the rest of you? Who got hit the worst? Even Dallas was covered with snow! Hit up the comments and let us know how badly you were hit!
