Our area of Texas has had more than it's fair share of snow so far this year. It is kind of crazy how much of it we have gotten and to be honest. We are a little over it. The first time was fun and we had a blast playing in it, building a snowman, sledding, and riding in our Ranger (check out the video). But this second time around was not so fun. As you may have seen on the news, or even experienced first hand yourself if you live in Texas, we got hit really hard by a winter weather storm and the entire state experienced awful power outages and broken pipes. We lost power and water for 2 days. We toughed it out for a little while but then we decided it was better to go to Ashley's grandparent's house to sleep in a heated home and charge our devices. Our daughter Marjorie has Type 1 Diabetes and we manage her blood sugar and insulin with two different devices that we needed to charge and we were not willing to lose power on those. The kids loved spending time with Ashley's grandparents and being somewhere new. They played games, baked brownies, made pancakes, read lots of books, and looked through lots of pictures. We are back home now and safe thankfully. We were able to take a lot of precautions to protect our plumbing and so far, we do not have any damage. We are hoping and praying that you too are safe, warm, and were not too badly affected by this awful winter storm, wherever you are.
