In years past I have spent a good solid hour just trying to get from North Braeswood to South Braeswood, and that was just for heavy rain, not snow.Now that we had actual ice, I say our snow day was well deserved, especially since the freeways were closed. Gallons and gallons of gas would have been wasted as cars idled while the drivers whiled away their work day stuck on the side roads.
We're already not incredibly environmentally friendly. Better not to chance it.
Besides, if we have to deal with cockroaches, floods, 100 degree temperatures, tropical rain storms, and hurricanes, we should definitely get to stay inside when the temperature is in the twenties.
That's just fair.
Here are some ice pictures. I couldn't take very many, because I don't own gloves:
These look like water droplets, but they're really ice. In Houston. On roses that were in bloom the very day before. We definitely needed to stay home:
Does it count as taking photos while driving if you're at a stop light? Here's a truck in the lane next to me. Yeah I know I said we should stay in, but this was after 12:00, when the roads were deemed "safe-ish". The freeway was still closed though:
Here's one last one from the same tree as the first picture, in front of our house. Now please excuse me. I have on 752 sweaters and it's hard to move my arms into the proper position to type. I might have to come back and center and resize the photos later!
