So, we got hit with even more snow yesterday. I would've been happy about this had I not been in Dallas when it all started to come down. I had to drive home from Dallas for an hour or so on the 75(a nasty interstate let me tell you) while it was raining, sleeting and then snowing like a blizzard. I had taken Cali to a specialist, which had already given me a headache(she had to get blood drawn) and this did not help it. I am a South Texan and have no experience driving on ice! And I was also trying to get home in time to pick up Aubrey from school which I didn't know had an early release. And I was worrying about my husband who was flying home from a day trip to Austin and would be having to drive home at rush hour in the snow. My stress level was high, my knuckles were white from my grip of the steering wheel and my head was pounding. I looked about like this cat.
When I finally got into our town, the roads were white with snow and ice, cars were wrecking left and right, and I think I said about a million prayers. There were snowflakes as big as donuts(Not sure why I chose donuts to compare them to, I'm hungry I guess). I made it to pick up Aubrey without any sliding, but then in my neighborhood my car started to swerve all over the place for a few seconds-I about had a heart attack! As I finally pulled into my driveway after about an hour and a half of driving in freaky weather, I was probably the most relieved I have been in a long time. Then I said another prayer as I was so grateful to be home and safe and also asking for safety for Joey. He made it home safely that evening and I feel grateful that we were all alright yesterday. Very very grateful.
The kids, of course, thought it was all awesome. More snow! More snowmen! More fun! They decided this morning to each make their own snowmen. We tried to do faces but they kept making the snowmen fall, so we decided to go faceless. They turned out cute-the girls did them completely by themselves. Good job gals!
Then we noticed there were some beautiful icicles on the bushes I had to take a picture of. The kids then decided they were "popsicles" and ate about 10 each. Hey, free dessert.
