Winter Wonderland

We’re walking (because we’re sure as heck not driving) in a winter wonderland here in Dallas today.

We’re covered in a half inch of ice and an inch of sleet. Two days ago it was 80 degrees. Today? 27 degrees with a wind chill of 10. I know for those of you up north that doesn’t seem like much (and even as native Midwesterners we’re used to worse), but for the native southerners down here this is a ice-pocalypse.

I snapped a few photos this morning. We plan on going out later to take more once the freezing rain stops for good.

Stay safe today if you’re getting the same weather we are! Have a great weekend!

    All the ice they were calling for our way didn’t happen at our house. My parents lost power for the day but thankfully had it back by last night! Beautiful pictures!

    I may have been born in Michigan and spent time growing up in cold states, but we did a 90 degree temperature in the last week and it’s nuts! Luckily, ours mostly came with snow versus ice and I’m hoping the front rolling in now that’s going to take us back into the single digits doesn’t come with too much precipitation!

    Good call on walking, but still watch out for the icy patches!

    And your photos are lovely!
