Ice Days 2013

We had a lot of freezing rain and below freezing temperatures move into North Texas. I was able to make it to work on Friday, though there were like 5 people at corporate haha {I guess that's the one downside to living only 5 minutes ice days!} 

Don't be fooled...that is all ice in our backyard.

Leland on Ice :)

Poor Peabody is covered in ice too

Our entire fence is covered in icicles

The trees are so heavy with the ice, especially because most of them still have their leaves. Many branches have broken off and litter the roads.

We have been holed in the house the last few days, enjoying a lot of rest, movies, hot coffee, and games. We are so thankful for the provision of a warm house, heat, and food. We are thankful for some forced down-time, though it's weird to have everything at a stand still. 

We did make it out for a walk around the neighborhood yesterday afternoon, though that was pretty short lived due to the icy ground and cold temps. Even though I couldn't feel my feet, it was nice to get out of the house for a little bit!

It was slow going but we managed to make our way safely

It's all so beautiful!

It should warm up a bit this afternoon, and hopefully the ice will start to melt by tomorrow! I'm ready for it to be back above 30! :)
