The Weather Outside Is Frightful!!!
It's being called Icemageddon 2013, which seems appropriate. We had temperatures in the 80s earlier in the week and then a cold front moves in and we get this. LOVE Texas weather.
We missed school on Friday. I took these photos yesterday when the boys begged to go outside. They are true Texans because they lasted all of 5 minutes and they were ready to go inside.
Just look at Ben's face.
Everything is covered in ice.
No rides today.
Will was really proud of this giant icicle.
We're hoping this tree limb doesn't snap off. It's pretty low to the ground right now because of the weight of the ice. This is common with most tree limbs that haven't broken off already.
I'm not sure if you can see it, but there's a huge branch on the ground that snapped off.
The crape myrtle trees in our front yard sustained a lot of damage. You can see where they snapped from the weight of the ice. I hate to see those go. I hope we can salvage them.
Will found this icicle in the front yard.
Ben was happier once I put some gloves on his hands.
Will just had to try the frozen slide. I wish I had a video of him landing on his bottom. It was pretty funny!
Ben couldn't be left out. Mark helped them both up the slippery steps.
One last photo of our nandina shrub in the front yard.
