This pretty much sums up the last few days at our house in North Texas. If a picture is worth a thousand words - here's 10,000 words for you! We've been home since Thursday night and are hopeful for thawing tomorrow so the roads are clear for getting to work on Monday.
Thankfully our power has stayed on and our pantry and refrigerator were fully stocked on Wednesday when the temperature was in the 70s! We have friends from back home who got iced in with us, so it's been a house party for the last 24 hours. Plus Oklahoma won the football game this afternoon which provided much jubilation. (Boomer Sooner!) We had already planned a dinner party with the neighbors tonight, so if they can slip and slide across the street to our house, it should be a fun evening inside where it's toasty warm.
The ice is beautiful, but bad for the trees, there will be a lot of damage. And of course, lots of people have been in auto accidents - not us - we had our accident LAST week on Thanksgiving Day when the weather was perfect.
So that's what happens when you get freezing rain. I'm ready for a warm up. I'll be sitting by fire as much as possible until then.
Much love and laughter,
