Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland
February snow in Austin – who knew?! And it even stuck around for most of the day.
Oh, let me back up for a minute. This is my first post in quite a while. Where have I been? Around, I guess. Feeling frayed and worn after the holidays, I thought I needed a break. Then a week turned into almost two months.
This morning all schools in the area are on a two hour delay because of weather induced driving conditions so I finally have a little extra time. I sat down at the computer and thought, why not write a post? That is if I can still remember how.
So greetings if anyone out there is reading. It’s good to be back.
Now back to what I was saying. I have been complaining about the weather for some time now. With our temperatures frequently sinking to the freezing point, don’t we deserve some pretty/beautiful snow for our troubles? Our temperatures were actually colder than it was in Vancouver when they had to truck in snow for the Olympics! Back in December we had an hour of soft flurries. It was magical. Could we somehow repeat the process?
Then on Tuesday I got my wish. It snowed and it stuck around for almost the whole day. I couldn’t believe the transformation! Here, let me show you.
Here it is after a few hours of snow.
Here is Junior Snowy. He’s about a foot tall and kinda ugly – it was hard to make the craisins and pumpkin seeds stick for his facial features and it was too cold for me to put in any more effort.
Here it is just 24 hours later. Back to the normal winter drab.
Rain washed most of it away but it was fun while it lasted. Stay warm out there. How’s the weather been treating you in your neck of the woods?
