You can sort of see the ice around the bottom of the tree on the left. It's hard to tell, but my sidewalk could double as a skating rink this morning
We awoke today to a thick layer of ice on the ground and consequently no school! I know that my Yankee friends scoff at what cancels school in Texas, but it's very difficult to drive on ice here because of the limited number of sanding trucks. It's also very cold (20° - which may not sound terrible to my friend Rachel but is darn cold for Dallas!), so we are hunkering down inside. I'm planning to bake some bread and make some corn chowder this afternoon.
(I am venturing out in a little bit, however, to get my hair cut and colored, but that's about the only thing that could incite me to leave the warmth of my house today!)

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
