Fast forward a few days, to December 6th, and it looked like this...
|WHAT IN THE WORLD?!?!|
And that, my friends, is NOT snow, believe it or not. It is pure ice. Yep, tiny ice pellets that fell. All day. And then, that ice stayed... for days. It was insane for this part of Texas. Schools were called off for nearly a week, people didn't go in to work if they didn't have to, grocery stores were literally bare of essentials. Ice-aggedon 2013.
The boys were excited to go play in it. Of course, they thought it would be fun... like snow. Oh well. They enjoyed it anyway. For a little while.

|Look at Callen's face, so happy!|
|He did really like being out there in the freezing cold!|

An unfortunate side effect of the freak ice storm on a metal roof is that some of the water froze in certain places and expanded, bending some of the metal, and making a place for water to leak in. One morning a week or so after the storm, it rained... and there was a puddle in our living room. It also bent and nearly broke off an exhaust stack from the water heater. Geez!
