This is what our Skyline Drive neighborhood looked like on Wednesday morning.
Normally, the I-30/I-40 junction is bumper-to-bumper on weekday morning.
Many of our neighbors lost power for a couple of days as trees crashed down on power lines. My in-laws are still in the dark as of Friday morning.
After the initial assessing of local damage and gazing in wonder at what 10" of fluffy snow looks like when draped over our familiar world, it was time get down to some serious business. We built snowmen! It started as Diane tried to find a place to put the snow that she was removing from her Subaru and escalated from there. We wondered where the neighborhood kids were, as we seemed to have an exclusive on the fun.
Diane went conventional with her snowmen. Willie and Zuli were just curious.
The is the MAN! The snow would not readily roll up, but I had other ideas, anyway, as this biped snow dude took shape.
Everyone wanted to be seen with this guy. Willie just likes to be in pictures.
