    We got somewhere between 8 and 12 inches in the Dallas area!!! That's a new record by a long shot. The bottom line is that we got today off (no school!!!), but I couldn't sew because we also had no power :thumbdown:

    We got snow in central GA too--but only about 2 inches. It sure looked pretty coming down.

    That is beautiful. Sorry about no power though. It would have been better if you could sew.

    Oh, you are one of the folks who lost power around here.

    I've just been in the house just watching the snow...

    Gorgeous pics! I am sorry you lost power though. The 1st pic looks like something you would see on a Card. Beautiful! Thank You for sharing. Enjoy it until it gets all dirty looking.

    We live in the Albany, NY area and got none!

    We have been talking about moving south to get out of the snow and cold.

    Due to global warming, maybe we should stay here and have the warmth come to us. It's a lot easier than packing up a house with 37 years of stuff in it!

    It is so pretty to look at! As my MIL used to say, if it didn't snow on the sidewalks and roads, everything would be great.

    Too much snow for me, ok no power.. can't sew? you can CUT! I never cut and sew on the same day. Too many errors. So I cut blocks one day sew them tomorrow. Just a thought for next time.

    I actually thought about cutting out the pieces for a Downy quilt, but by the time I could get my thoughts organized and drink my lukewarm "hot cocoa" the power came on. This is the only time in 14 years we have had the power off this long, so we don't have any experience. And I seriously hope next time doesn't come. My husband and I were discussing how spoiled we are.

    I lived in Dallas ages ago. The most snow I think we got was a 1/4" and people were sliding everywhere. I have been there through ice storms. I lived there when the tornado hit on Mother's Day in Wylie. My kids helped with the clean up and found the Mickey D sign clear across town.

    I'm in midland, Tx, and we do get snow...why , back in '98, it snowed 4 1/2 inches on about 3 hours...messed everything up...got up to 67 degrees that afternoon, and it all melted. The saying out here is "If you don't like the weather here, stick around for 10 minutes - it'll change!!!"
