The day San Antonio was shut down

I come from the Midwest.  In the midwest, it gets pretty cold there.  Cold enough they shut down the school sometimes.  Cold enough that there are blizzards, or 7 inches of snow. 

But... snow in San Antonio?  We were warned when we moved to Texas that IF it ever snows, or even ices over, the city literally shuts down.

That happened on Friday.  The city shut down.  Literally!  Highways were closed.  Busineses were closed until noon.  Schools were cancelled.  And everyone was making snow angels in the 1/8 of an inch of snow we had on the ground.  Unbelievable.

It has been over a year since we were in a huge snow storm (Christmas of 2009), but Maddie sure enjoyed herself.  I told her as she bundled up "OK, enjoy your .... dusting of snow." 

And she did!



For the record.... there was ice under that snow, which is why we were all stopped in our tracks. :)  But, in true San Antonio fashion, it all melted by 10:00!


  1. I would be like San Antonio. Freaking out. I'm clueless about snow..how to dress for it, how to drive in it...Stay warm!

  2. I think we have more shade than you do, because our snow lasted on the grass for the whole day. It didn't melt until the next morning. And my kids did snow angels too. Well, they tried anyway.
