Holy Cold Day in Hell Batman!

Yesterday, late in the afternoon, Lana comes in to tell me it's snowing. I look out side and see that yes it is but I don't get my hopes up in Houston of it actually sticking. The last time it "snowed" in Houston it was really just glorified sleet and made nasty slush everywhere. Not what I remember as being snow, growing up some in Colorado. You can't really make a snow fort with you little brother out of icy slush. So I headed out to Wally World for some much needed stuff (dog food, bread, the Dark Knight DVD, etc.) and made a few playful jabs on Twitter about Houston never getting real snow. On our way out of the store I noticed that, "Holy cold day in Hell Batman!" (to quote Lana), it's started to stick. I'll confess I got a little giddy but I still wasn't going to get my hopes up. By the time we got home we noticed our neighborhood had a lovely blanket of white and our neighbors were out. After putting the truck in the garage, we made a bee line for the front yard and commenced to having our own snow day. While it may not have been the knee high trudging snow I remember playing in with my brother, it was really nice to watch the kids play in the snow. Marcel threw down a snow angel or two, Olivia ran straight for the sludge to play in and loved falling over in the snow, and Lana got Marcel good by coaxing him under a snow loaded tree. We even made a snowman. It was really nice, the four of us, playing in the snow in our front yard.
