Crazy silly weather!

Tuesday Dec 9th was just a plain weird day. We rode our bikes to school at 7am with no coats, it was nice and warm. By 1pm the temperature had hit a swampy 81 degrees to hit a record high for this date in Austin.

Within a few hours of that a cold front moved in and the temperatures plummeted and the wind picked up. On my way home from going out to dinner with some friends it started sleeting and snowing! It had just been 80 degress a few hours previous so the roads were warm so the snow wasnt sticking there, but it started sticking to everything off the ground.

It started covering the deck.

I couldnt resist and made a little snowman.

The kids were excited to see some snow in the morning when they woke up. Just a dusting is a rare occurrence down here. It was especially bizarre for it to occur on the same day we had record heat.

My other snow pics are on my flickr.
