There was talk all week about a winter storm heading our way toward Dallas and because I'm a SoCal girl, I had no idea what to expect.
Cold and a little rain? Nah, no big deal.
On Wednesday it was 80 degrees and beautiful-- it actually felt a lot like San Diego! But once night hit, the temperature dropped every hour... until it reached below freezing on Thursday morning. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?!
Last night while sitting in traffic for 40 minutes (and only got 5 miles, poke my eye out), I heard on the radio– "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, folks! Get ready for the biggest winter storm of the year-- keep your faucets running, keep your heat on, and stay off the roads! It's gonna be a nasty one!"
...I ain't in California anymore...
This morning I looked out my window and I saw white. WHITE!
Snow! Sleet! Ice! Whatever the white stuff is, it looks beautiful. So today is my very first snow day, everyone.
And I must say, I am very very very thankful for electricity. And food. And cozy socks.
