Well we had snow... sort of. If you call less than an inch snow. Still since we live down here in the south the city shut down all the highways till noon (so I have to head off to work in a little bit, bummer), we had a "Blizzard of 2011" graphic on the news, something like 300 accidents called in last night, apparently we borrowed two de-icing trucks from somewhere, because those same two trucks have been driving all over the city, and most if not all schools have been closed. Ah nothing like a little snow and ice to freak us Texans out. Still I was up at the crack of dawn to check it out, because if I've learned one thing living here all my life the weather will change in a blink of the eye, heck I was rocking shorts on Sunday, now I am wearing a Tauntaun to keep warm.
So here's how my morning shaped up...
There was a Wampa Advisory in effect until about 6:00 AM this morning!
The South Texas Snowtrooper Garrison hard at work. The AT-AT driver said it wasn't worth her time firing up the AT-AT, this took the "old timer" Snowtrooper off guard because up until now he thought she was a he...
With Wampa patrol out of the way the "Rookie" decided it was time for Snow Angels!
Back in the AT-AT it was time to finish the patrol of the backyard.
Squee absolutely loved the snow, she was up early and would run in and out of the house only long enough to warm up and go back and play.
Troops were stationed at key landmarks in case more Wampas showed up.
Gonk joined in on the festivities and built a Snowtrooper himself!
The homestead with all the snow we are going to get this year!
Well that's it, I guess I better go get ready for work...yea! to quote one of our news anchors "Ya'll stay warm and be careful out thar, it's cold and slip-r-ee!"
