...Phil has a snow day...

Really?

hahaha!

that's texas for you, i guess. we had the same thing happen in seattle growing up - the entire county had one, maybe two trucks. the whole city shut down with just a little bit of snow.

enjoy the extra day you all get to spend together!

Yea, it cracks us up! We'd have to have a blizzard to have work called off in KS!

A sifting like that closed a base?! Well take grace where it's given, as they say.
Can you imagine the alarm the natives must feel? They probably stocked up on 16 D-cells, 5 packs of tp,and 3 gal milk. Roland at Lackland/San Antonio wrote that they got a heavy snow alert--2" expected.
Then there were the guys on the flight line in Rapid City, SD who used to stick the large heating hoses under their parkas to try to warm up. I guess it is all in what you are set up to handle.
But I have seen more powdered sugar on cakes than you have snow!

Auntie, my fearless husband went out to get more propane for the grill and get a few movies from RedBox. He said it was crazy how many wrecks were everywhere. Either people were driving super fast around curves and spinning all over the road or they were driving so slow you could walk as fast on foot. I could always tell the southerners that were new to post up north, just by how they reacted to snow. Since Phil made salsa I'll take a little of that grace! Yes, definitely more sugar on some cakes then we have snow, but as northerners, Matthew and I are glad to see the snow. Now the cold is worth it!

Ha! Just like Oklahoma. We don't know what to do with snow when it comes. We've been shut down all week. B hasn't gone to work once!!

And Deuce is the little black dog. CJ is the black and white one. :)

LOL- my friend at College Station has a similar story; I gave him a hard time about not being able to drive since he did live here for 4 years and we get "plenty" of snow. I missed one extra day of class due to drifts in the driveway but I wasn't the only one; one of my classes has 10 of us "rural" students who couldn't get out on Wednesday.
