Welcome Winter in Texas....
The weather is really crazy. Yesterday we wore T-Shirts, Skirts/Shorts and Flip-Flops and over night it became very cold!
Janina, Jason and me went to Dallas yesterday to got a check-up for Jasons braces and on the way back we made a stop at my favorite store: IKEA! I just love this store and I always leave with a shopping cart full of stuff! This time we bought new beddings, bedspreads, lamps, a footstool, fabric, plant pots, and nic nacs. While we were at IKEA it started raining. We know it was supposed to get very cold that night. On the way back to Gainesville (usually an one-hour drive) we got in heavy rain and storm. It took us almost two hours to get home! It was just terrible!
Today when I got up, the rain already turned into ice-rain and my car had a skin of ice. I couln't even get the doors open!
Janina and Jason went to school and only had two classes, then they were dismissed to leave. Konny left his company around 10am and our bank closed at 4pm. There were a lot of accidents and the NEWS says it is getting worse tomorrow! Let's see! I know for sure, I will get up very early to defrost my car!!!

Our back porch at 5:30pm

Hi meine Liebe,

heul mal nicht rum wegen so einem bischen Schnee :-))) Bei uns war es gestern 3 Grad Fahrenheit.... Aber Ihr als Sonnenanbeter seid das ja nicht gewoehnt....Geniesst Euren Schneetag heute und fahrt vorsichtig.

Liebe Gruesse aus Monument
