Snow in 2011

I am pretty sure that I can only remember a few really good snowfalls from my childhood.  Living in this part of Texas we are usually blessed with ice or "wintry mix" during our winter weather.  However, now that EK has been around it seems like we are enjoying a nice snowfall almost every year!  I guess some would blame it on global warming.  Oh well.  At least we get to enjoy the beauty of a blanket of snow for a while before it all melts and makes everything a muddy mess.  The occasional school closing is nice, too (although a late start is really the ideal choice).  The best part of all might just have to be having snow ice cream!

Too bad our first batch of snow ice cream wasn't very good.  There was more sleet than snow collected in our bowl and the ice cream was really too icy.  Go figure!  It came out like a slushy.

mrs. mil10 had a hair appointment today.  She tried to make it to the salon, but the first road she tried was blocked by a fire truck helping someone get their truck out of a ditch.  On her second road, she started to spin.  It was time to come back home.  All in all, she looks pretty positive after the excitement of driving on snow and slush and a cancelled hair appointment.

It was almost a white out!

EK is taking aim and is ready with a snowball!

The second batch of snow ice cream was perfect -- just like a cloud!
