A real snowman?

I usually detest when the weather is the news of the day, but today there's just no avoiding it. We Dallasites awoke this morning to a veritable Winter Wonderland in the metroplex....and it has just gotten more "wonderful" all day. Every time I look out the window I'm annoyed all over again that I had to come to work today. I'm trying to accept it. Here's a look out my office window (not MY window mind you, but the closest one to the cubicle bay...grrr). I'm giddy with delight at the seasonal spectacle just beyond the cubicle walls.

For me it's definitely a beautiful sight. Other people in the office who've lived elsewhere and are more accustomed to snow just approach the situation with a vengeful irritation. It's like they came down here to get away from the Winters and the Winters found them. I'm going to embrace it...or try, I'm actually really freezing.

During lunch a few of us got to jaunt around in the soft powder. I got the rare opportunity to make one of these: (Yes that is a miniature cowboy hat and a jalepeno for a nose. Can't forget where we are after all.)

Now that I'm back from the lunchtime snow party my hair and feet are soaking wet and very cold. I forgot the whole moisture element of snow and went a little wacky out in it. It turns out that the luxurious powder quickly turns into freezing water. No matter, its still amazing out there!

Tomorrow I'm planning to fly to New Orleans for a Bachellorette Mardi Gras extravaganza and have taken the day off. I hope there aren't any flight delays because as much as I love the North Texas winteryness, I think I'm looking a lot more forward to the Louisianan debauchery on the other end of that flight. Everyone will probably get a snow day on the one day I've already planned to take a vacation day. Just my luck.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
