OMG! It's "snowing"!!!

It is so cold here that right this very second it is sleeting outside! Ethan and Claire think it's snowing, so they are running around yelling, "It's snowing! It's snowing!"

Allison is having a "social" after school-they can't call them "dances" anymore, and they can't have them at night. **Just inserting my opinion here: I think that really sucks! Even though they were Middle School Nightmares to me, they are like a Rite of Passage. It is really sad how one or two people, literally, can ruin something for everyone. OK-off soapbox now.** Anyway, it's like driving through the mountains to get to Allison's school. You are either going straight up or straight down. She may just have to spend the night there! lol!

Only VERY rarely where I am. Up in the Panhandle they get lots of snow. And actually, Christmas Eve 2004, when we lived in Houston, we got a little snow! The Corpus Christie area got a few inches, even. I may be completely wrong about this, but I think the last time they had snow down there was like a hundred years ago.

I hope your daughter made it home from the dance alright. When I was in junior high they were called socials too, but they were at night!
