Nanook of the.....South?

While I'm hardly an Inuit Eskimo and Emma Belle is certainly no sled dog, we were outside this morning at 5 am playing the role. The 2 inches of ice covering everything has become old news after the 3 days we've been putting up with it. When we went to bed last night the weather guessers were telling us to expect a dusting to maybe an inch of snow when we woke up this morning. WRONG!! Instead this is what we found:

....about 8 inches here in Plano, TX. It was beautiful virgin snow when I first stepped on it....and Emma first peed on it. Driving on snow doesn't bother me at all, so I dropped K off at her work on my way to my work. It's supposed to be warmer tomorrow (40 degrees), so I'm sure all those who have been cooped up inside since Tuesday will be at the grocery stores tomorrow restocking. Trying to stay ahead of the curve K and I went to Tar-zhay this afternoon and got all our weekly shopping done early.

With all the groceries now put away, it's time for us to go out for our customary Friday Date Night.

Hope y'all are warm and safe this evening. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

  1. In my world that would be nothing special, but in TEXAS? crazy.......

  2. We were suppose to get snow last night but all we got was rain.

  3. Nothing but cold rain and gray skies here, trying not to go back out but I'm low on both beer and cheap wine.
