Snowed big time...

Snowed big time - for us anyway.  Of course everyone here in south Louisiana went crazy, went outside, built snowmen took a zillion photos, and all at 3AM in the morning.

My son texted my wife at 3 and then she woke up my grandaughter who was staying with us then she woke me up and we all had to go see. The snow was pretty and it was all lit up  from area lights plus the moon. They had to go take a lot of pictures, play a bit and I - the old gizzer - went back to bed. I've seen this before but my granddaughter had not.

Ffinally they came in and went  back to sleep. By 7AM it was still snowing and they got to really go play in it when they could really see it. My granddaughter's gloves kept getting wet and her fingers kept getting "frozen" so she kept coming in to warm them up. In and out, in and out, in an out, she and my wife went on to around 9 or so.

At that point they finally had enough and came in to really warm up, eat breakfast and thaw out. We saw photos of the whole area on the local TV station flooded with pictures of snowmen and snow photos of houses, kids, roads, everything all covered in white. It was pretty but by noon it was all beginning to melt away.

Friday-Sat night it got down to below freezing but no moisture, no snow, just cold. And for us, below freezing is REALLY COLD. In south Louisiana, 50 milies from the Gulf coast it is REALLY, REALLY COLD!
