Dallas Snow and Ice Storm for the Super Bowl?

Really? It started here Monday evening with freezing rain, and it just keeps going like the Energizer bunny. The roads really are more treacherous than the news is saying, so I'm assuming the players and other party people have the AWD vehicles at their disposal.

Last night we got pounded by 6" of snow which is just about unheard of in this part of the country. We've had some help from neighboring states with snow plows, which have been going non-stop. I really feel sorry for those folks that have spent so much money to get here, and couldn't with cancelled flights and poor driving conditions.  Good News though, tomorrow is suppose to be in the 40's and this stuff will start melting away. 

I thought I'd post a couple pictures i took today.  One of my back patio so that you can see how high the snow is on my patio furniture, and another looking out my front door.  The bare spot in the drive is where Hubby's truck rests at night :)

I know to some of my friends here, this is nothing, and you're probably saying to yourself, "Snow, you call that SNOW. You want to see real snow, come to ___ to see me". Right?  When Dallas just about shuts down because of it...It's a mess to us :)

How I'm Surviving an Ice Day at Home

Today, (well really it started last night) we are totally iced in. It started sleeting and snowing in the early hours of the night, and I woke up to a thick pelting of sleet again my windows. I started off early by making a list of all the things I wanted to get accomplished today (it works for me).

  1. Get some new things listed on my website www.nanagcreations.com    =Check
  2. List the items in my Art Fire store.  
  3. Try to fix the template on my blog. = semi check
  4. Work a little while on the Adult Sock Monkey hat I'm making. = Check
  5. Start sewing up the new backpack I'm working on
  6. Start cutting out fabric for the 2 new tote bags I'm working on
  7. Quilt some fabric for the new pattern I have for a laptop carry
Well, better get busy with 3, and 5 through 6!

Stay warm everyone, and if you have some time.. I'd love you to comment on how you like this blog template.  I'm not convinced on it yet.
