The white substance was very powdery, so I easily removed it.
Walking in the 6 inches of snow was a lot easier than dealing with walking on ice. But, I had an incident or two where I nearly slipped into falling mode.
I took several pictures to take you on a virtual tour of my latest Texas Snow Day.
Looking out at the pool it is hard to believe I used to swim in that thing. It looks very cold currently.
The icicle I showed you yesterday now is surrounded by a ring of snow.
Above I'm up by Albertsons, looking down on Boca Raton Boulevard. The van on the right is stuck.
To the left of the view of the stuck van is a couple rows of parked, snow-covered cars. I don't know if they are stuck.
That is the Super Bowl Buffet on the right, with a truck and a car going slow on the Loop 820 Interstate. It does not appear that the Super Bowl Buffet is open today.
On the south side of the Super Bowl Buffet looking across the parking lot at Albertsons, which is open.
Currently it is 22 degrees out there. I think that's the warmest it has been for days. The sun seems to be trying to break through the clouds. Some sun might help warm things up a bit. And cause melting, which will then freeze again into a slippery, icy mess.
It is days like this that cause me to miss the temperature, moderate, easy going weather of Western Washington.
I called my mom this morning while I was out playing in the snow. Mom politely listened to me whine about the weather and then told me it was me who chose to move to this place. Phoenix froze last night, down to 26, according to my mom.
Miss Puerto Rico just called to tell me she is out of essential groceries. I told her I'd go on an emergency essentials hunt at Albertsons this afternoon.
