It was an exciting day at our house: SNOW!
To multiply the joy, my daughter's school cancelled classes. That's good, because I probably would have kept her home and accrued an unexcused absence. A snowy day in Central Texas counts as an educational experience, as far as I'm concerned.
We explored the sights this morning, and wandered through the woods on our trail-in-progress. My daughter remembered the twists and turns of the trail, but I was somewhat discombobulated by the foreign white substance beneath my feet. We spied some animal tracks: deer, maybe rabbit and possibly fox. It was so beautiful, and such a treat for us.
Much of the snow has melted now, as the sunshine has brought the temperature up to 39 degrees F, the warmest it's been since Monday, and the first time it's been over 24 degrees since Tuesday. (Our average temp for this time of year is 62 degrees!)
What a tremendous winter event this has been. We got off relatively easy, though with warmer air we shall see how many broken water pipes there are!
