It sleeted then snowed here on Monday night. We usually get something like that once or twice a winter here in north Texas, and sometimes an even heavier snow but what has been really unusual is:
how cold it has been,
how long it has stayed that cold,
how long the snow has stayed
and that it snowed on top of previously fallen snow.
This is the first time this has happened since we moved here almost 30 years ago.
Thankfully, Joe’s job allows him to work from home at times like this, so we haven’t had the worry of having to get out on the roads. For several days we hadn’t been any farther than giving hay to the next-door-donkey or the mailbox.
However, cabin fever was setting in (I know how silly that sounds after 4 measly days) and this afternoon we ventured into town to the grocery store. Our country road (and the others we traveled on to get to the highway) were still snowy and frozen but the highway was fairly clear.
