This morning I scraped the windows on Courtney’s car and headed out to test the roads after the ice and snow on Sunday. The roads were pretty clear, and so, with a little worry tucked away, I saw the girls off this morning.
Midway through the morning I looked out my office window to falling snow (picture below). The roads had been clear just an hour before when I walked over. Snow accumulated aggressively the rest of the morning. Courtney snapped a picture of the green house in the courtyard of Austin Middle School in Amarillo (the opening picture).
It made me nervous but everyone made it home safe, and I can only pray that everyone else out in this weather gets home safely as well. It’s a little unspoken rule that Amarillo School Districts never shut down for snow or ice.
The highlight of the day was Courtney’s pictures of the first sprouts in the revived green house. The heaters and sprouts battled through the “feels like” temperature of -5 F, and came up today. All the snow and ice is good for the winter wheat from what I hear. Life flourishing in the bitter cold.
All though I do wish it could be 70 F like it was Friday… White snow charms me with little shocks of cold and warm beverages and soups!
