    I just had to share this. Last Sunday it was 60 degrees. Tuesday morning we had rain that turned to ice and then record lows during the week. Some of the streets were partially cleared yesterday from the traffic, but still have ice, especially where the tires didn't wear it off.

    And now we have 5 inches of snow on top of that. Welcome to the Super Bowl.

    LoisN, I love your avatar. Is it a wall hanging? Do you mind telling me what pattern it is?

    It's GOD's way of telling Jerry Jones that HE is in charge, not Jerry.

    I have the same opinion. Do you suppose this will make Mr. Jones a little more humble?

    Our snow is almost all gone. Hang in there, only about 6-8 weeks of winter left so they say.
    SO, the question is, "Super Bowl or no Super Bowl"?

    That's just crazy. Our oldest son lives in F. Worth and he isn't intimidated with the snow(being from Chicago), but the ice is terrible! I hope it clears up for the Super Bowl.

    I was telling my son in Saskatoon how cold it is here and how much snow we got this week. He laughed and said that it is warming up, up there...He said it's only -20 instead of -45. Definitely colder than here.

    When did they move Texas so far north??? I thought we were a southern state. Luckily here in Texarkana we are just getting snow this time as we usually get a good, thick layer of ice and sleet first. However, we are pretty close to the 5" mark now and it's still snowing.

    My daughter and her family live in Dallas. They have been home all week. Finally yesterday the kid's other grandparents came over to help with the 3 year old and 6 year old so my daughter and son-in-law can get some work done. She said the kids are as happy as they were Christmas week.

    This week has been crazy. Work closed Tuesday, (paid time off thank you BOA) tried to go to work Wednesday, slid into ditch (only thing hurt was my wallet), worked Thursday, got up super early this morning, drove to work to find once again closed. Tomorrow we shall see.
