Everything is Bigger in Texas?

I had my first snow day as a teacher on Friday. There was snow that we were promised all week long. But I wasn't really sure if it was going to show up.

As you can see, it finally did. There was so much snow, I think all the schools in/near/around Houston were closed. At first Navasota was just going to start late, but then I got the phone call at 6:45 that school was cancelled. Which just means we get to make it up later in the year.

Seriously. This was it. There was more up North in Navasota, but not much here. But some of the freeways were closed and the overpasses and there were tons of accidents. Not because the snow/ice was that bad, but because Texans can drive through anything! Not really. I imagine that there were lots of arrogant Texans on the road who figured their truck would not be affected by the ice. 

So this was our snow day. And we didn't even get to build a snowman. But I'll live. 

And today, it got up into the 70s. That's south central Texas for you.
