Winter Weather

Winter rains have pelted our area for the last three days. That is a good thing considering how dry it has been in North Texas the last few years. It has made for miserable conditions, cold and damp. For those of you living in other parts of the country, you probably laugh at our "complaining" of the cold. Bear with us please, the temperature dropped from a balmy 70 degrees Friday afternoon to 32 degrees all in the space of one hour!

Yesterday, my family didn't even leave the house. It was rather pleasant...watching movies, playing games, cooking, for me knitting and RacerDad worked on slotcars. Of course the weather did not get as bad as the forcasters predicted. Just wet and rainy, light ice on the bridges. Today we did venture out to church, all evening activities have been cancelled. It will be interesting to see what the night brings. The ground is extremely wet, roads are as well. Rain is forecasted for the night as well as temperatures in the low 20's.

I feel bad for RacerDad. Bad weather invariably means a slow day at work for him. The shop is cold and no works means the day will just drag along.

The woods down by the lake were just beautiful when we went to church. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me, so I snapped these pictures in the backyard.

The yard actually sloshed as I walked across it. I can't remember the last time I had that happen!
