SNOW 2010


Can you believe it - it snowed ALL day on Thursday

Can you believe it - a new snowfall record for DFW - 12.5 inches of snow in one day (previous record was 7.4 inches)

Can you believe it - we were able to build 4 snowmen in our front yard - LIFE SIZED snowmen - and Little Man and Little Miss made two of the "biggest snowballs ever"

This past Thursday we had the most snow fall in one day here in DFW. It literally snowed ALL DAY LONG! I know that's not a big deal for many people but here in Dallas, it's a HUGE deal. We are not equipped to deal with that much snow :) School was closed on Thursday and Friday due to snow, slush, and ice. The kids and I played outside on Thursday making snowmen, having snowball fights, and rolling the biggest snowball we could roll. Then we came in and warmed up in front of a fire.

On Friday, Ryan stayed home from work in the morning. He ended up spending 3 hours or so helping our neighbor get a tree off of his house. There were a lot of trees down in the neighborhood and around town. Our trees aren't used to that much snow :)

Then after lunch, we all went outside to throw snowballs, play in the snow on the playset and run around the backyard. The kids were cold and worn out by the end of the day.

We all had a blast in the monster snowfall that befell our city!
