As I awoke last Thursday morning, the first thing my husband said to me was, “Did you dream about something white last night?”
“What?” I asked groggily. “No.”
Then he said, “Look outside.”
I peeked through the blinds, and what should meet my eyes but a sparkling winter wonderland! Everything was covered in snow, and big fat flakes were still coming down. What an awesome way to wake up in the morning!
I was antsy all day at work, just waiting to get home and play in the show. Around four o’clock that afternoon, I got a call from my hubby.
“When are you coming home so we can play in the show?”
“Regular time, I guess,” I sighed.
“Well, I’m going to go out and build a snowman.”
“No you are not!!” I practically shouted. “You have to wait for me.”
“Well,” he said, “can I just build a snowdog?”
“Yes, you can build a snowdog.”
And that’s just what he did.
The snow continued non-stop for the rest of the day, and by the next morning, we had between 12″ and 14″ at our house. A new record was set for the most snow in Dallas EVER in a 24 hour period in recorded weather history. I had enough of my wits about me to put a large bowl out that morning to collect snow for snow cream. What an awesome treat that was!
We did manage to build our snowman, with caramel candy eyes, a carrot nose, and blueberry mouth, and the dogs had a blast playing outside. It was their first experience with snow, and they slept so soundly that night.
My talented husband juggled snowballs, and I got soaking wet making a snow angel.
I know that so much of the country is tired of the snow by now, but I was just grateful that we got to have our little share.
