Snow and LOTS of it

Thursday morning started out with slushy rain, but at 5 am the roads were only wet.
There was snow in the grass and the roof tops, but none on the street.
By the time we left the house at 7 am the streets where beginning to get slushy and traction was getting difficult. It normally only takes me about 20 min. to get the boys dropped off at 3 different schools and me to school, but this morning it took about 40 min.
By 10 am it was snowing like a blizzard!
I was subbing with 5th and 6th graders and boy were they excited.
Most of kids around here have seen it snow, but never for that long and accumulate that much.
It has been 30 years since the Dallas area has seen this much snow!
The Jr. High and High school kids were let out at 2:00.
We were scrambling to find people to pick them up since Brent was an hour away and I was with the Intermediate kids who along with the elementary kids got out at regular time (don't even get me started on the school districts logic on this)!
I took some pictures of what the snow looked like when we did get home from school.
The view from Keyton's window in the front of the house.

Our backyard. Those are Crepe Myrtles lining the fence.
The snowflakes in the afternoon were like cotton balls.

This is the view of Tucker's school from his window.
More pics of snow fun in the next post!
Hugs, K
