On Thursday the day started off in the 30's (a 50 degree drop from the day before) and just continued to get colder and colder....then the sleet and freezing rain came.
It looks like snow but nope, it's ice...all ice. A solid sheet of ice about 2 inches thick.
The boys were pretty excited about it so we took them outside to drive their Jeep on the slick ice.
Cute boys all bundled up and braving the freezing temps.
Hard to believe we were wearing t-shirts and picnicking just a couple of days before. Crazy Texas weather.
Benjamin had a blast outside. He was running and jumping. He loved it.
Little rosy cheeks and nose.
I think Caleb got a little cold or something.
Trying to break up a giant slab of ice.
So we are on day 3 of house arrest due to the icy roads. Things are starting to improve a bit today so hopefully we will be free to move about soon. While we have enjoyed being all cuddled up as a family for the past few days, it was a bit of a disappointment because we had to reschedule Benjamin's birthday party for next weekend. Oh well, what can you do?
