ATX Snow ~ February 4, 2011

It has been a COLD week in Austin, Texas.
Below freezing temperatures for over 3 days...brrr..very unusual!
Teaching kindergarten and not having recess.....made it a long week!
We stayed awake until we saw the first snowflake last night....
Today we woke up to some great news....
A SNOW DAY ~ No School!
We haven't had this much snow since Feburary, 14, 2004.
I love snow days....we don't have them much in Austin...
but I will sure hate making it up on Good Friday!
Our house in the snow....we had 1 inch!
Our neighbor, Dennis, was the only one that left for work this morning.
 Lola loved the snow and choose to stay outside....
 On the other hand....Bogart wasn't too excited about this white stuff!
Me and the dachshunds (of course they both wouldn't look at the camera
at the same time)....we had to take a snow photo together.
Last Sunday...Rob and I played golf in 88 degree weather and this morning it was 20 degrees.
Speaking of ROB.....he is a New Yorker...
 And makes fun of Texas snow....he was in shorts today..
wishing the golf course was OPEN!
I keep telling him, "tomorrow"...
 Rob and I went for a short walk in the snow...can you guess which print is his?
Did I mention ... he is CRAZY!!
Mom is here visiting...she is our wood gal..the fireplace has been going since Tuesday!
Thanks, Mom!  Look who is loving the fire the most...
 Lola takes a break to come inside and dry off.
Bogart has been here almost all day......sweet boy dog!
Our poor, pitiful snowman....actually MINE...I am the artist!
Many of my kindergarten students have send me pictures of them to
post on my school blog...I will work on that later tonight.
They were so happy to have a snow day...and I was, too!

More photos from beautiful Austin sure looks great in white!
 Several views of the state capital...

Lady Bird Lake in the snow
My favorite picture...taken at UT...some college kids playing in the snow!
What FUN!!! And an amazing photo!!

Rob looks like he's "meditating" in that chair. Too funny! Great pics of the snowy day! We loved it too! :)
