Snow Day

Dallas can has one too.

I walked over to Swiss Avenue, to photograph it in all its old, posh, snow-covered loveliness.

Granted, this amount of snow is pretty unheard of in this part of Texas. But I don't get quite so crazy about it after those five years in New York. I am, however, super excited for the kids. I grew up around here, so I know. This is pretty freakin' awesome.

Working at a school means snow days come quickly. I got the alert at 6 am. I'd gone to bed convinced there'd be no issues. I hadn't even bothered to bring home the numbers of the four subs I had coming in today. So when I got that call, there was quite a bit of confusion.

It is a bit hard to believe that it's still coming down. They cancelled the volunteer appreciation dinner at the Arboretum tonight, which is a heart breaker. I was so excited about going. But hot cocoa, Parks & Rec, The Office, and 30 Rock sound pretty nice too.

Love the photos. I used to live in that area and miss the fact that I couldn't walk over and see it myself.

You have such beautiful pictures. Dallas looked so beautiful, it was captured well.I love the street picture because it reminded me of a neighborhood I used to visit in New York.
