Snowpocalypse 2014

So I recognize that much of the rest of the country is frigid but I have to tell you that the weather here is causing this poor Texas girl her very own special kind of culture shock. I knew it got cold. I’ve been in western Wyoming the last two winters so that wasn’t exactly news.

However, I was not expecting it to get this cold this fast. Today we drove up to Jackson to run a few errands and my kids were dressed like this

because outside it looked like this.

Our errands included eating lunch someplace fun and grocery shopping. (We bought cricket bars!)

Then we headed home. It was 9° when we left and a balmy 11° when we returned. We were gone for about 6 hours and it didn’t stop snowing the entire time. As I type this there are already 6 inches of snow on the ground and we are under a snow weather winter explosion advisory for another 40 hours or so. On Saturday it is supposed to be -11°.

Once we were home we decided to stay in and play. For your viewing pleasure I bring you my beautiful raspberry blowing daughter and handsome singing son.
