Holy Snowballs Batman!

It's actually snowing here.

In Houston, Texas.

I've seen snow about 4 times in my entire life, and only once did it collect on the ground and stay for more than an hour. This one's supposed to be a pretty big snowstorm, like with actual inches collected on the ground. I am like a little kid right now, I want to play in the snow because I never have!! I know some of my Northern friends will find this absolutely crazy, but it's true. It's such a big deal here that everyone's been freaking out about it for a week now. Today I left work around 11 to drive home and log on from there, so I wouldn't have to drive in rush hour traffic with the snow/rain/ice, and once I got here and logged on there was a company-wide email sent out saying that everyone was being sent home. Scooore! I'm on my way to light a fire in the fireplace, lay on the couch, look at my pretty Christmas tree, and catch up on some DVR'd shows I never have time to watch. Maybe some wine too... don't judge, I know it's only 1PM, but it's totally appropriate for the circumstances. Who am I kidding, I'd probably still drink if it was sunny and 75 degrees...

I wish it would snow every Friday!

That snow shits supposed to be at my house tomorrow morning. I'm glad you are enjoying it.

Oh and bottoms up. I don't judge.

Enjoy it! Feels more like spring here but I grew up in New England, lived in Alaska so I've had enough snow for one lifetime

I have only seen snow a couple times in my life, too. I'm so jealous! It's about 65 here, which is making it tough to get into the holiday spirit.

And 1:00PM is well after 10:30AM, which is my drinking start time (unless I'm in Vegas, or it's summer). You're good.

My hubby just told me that Texas, Mississippi & Louisiana were supposed to get significant snowfall this week. How weird is that?? It's only been spitting snow here the last few days but it's colder than a witch's tit and I'm hoping we get some massive snow soon. I love being snowed in and having to sit and drink wine by the fire!!

Have fun with that. I think it's a perfect excuse to drink.
