Yesterday Twitter and FB were blowing up with everyone talking about their snow days. People were home, schools were closed, and movies were watched.
There was snow as close as Dallas, but no such luck for those of us in Central/South Texas. What we had was 40 degrees, wet, and nasty. And work. We cant' forget work.
And since people in South Texas can't drive if there is any sort of moisture falling from the sky, this is what it felt like on my drive home, only darker, wetter, and without the trees.
It took me well over an hour to make a 30 minute commute. It was brutal.
And when I walked through the door at home, I noticed that it was pretty chilly. Then we found out the heater was broken and couldn't be fixed until this morning. It dipped below freezing last night.
So when the kids were ready for bed, I tucked them in beneath piles and piles of blankets, covered up almost over their heads. I wish I had a picture but I was too concerned with making sure we didn't all turn into ice cubes during the night.
Luckily, we all had use of our extremities this morning and thankfully, the heater should be fixed today.
