I believe his exact words were, "It doesn't snow in Dallas. It never even gets that cold in Dallas."
Remember a recent post where I told you about the first time Michael lied to me? Folks, we are now working on lie number two.
Honestly, I'm not sure those were his exact words. I do remember him saying it doesn't get nearly as cold or snow/ice nearly as much as it does in Tulsa, and I believe that is still true. However. We set a record the other day for the lowest high (temp-wise) since 1905.
A brief historical review of 1905:
-Oklahoma admitted to statehood
-Crete, which had been part of the Ottoman Empire, declared its union with Greece
-Theory of Relativity published by Albert Einstein
-Hosni Mubarak was elected president of Egypt
(Ok, that last one was a joke)
So you see, a lot has happened in the last 106 years and I'm still wondering how I have been a resident for two of the coldest winters Dallas has ever experienced. Clearly we need to move further south.
I realize these pictures don't compare to those sent to me by my Tulsa friends or family in Chicago, but for us Texans, this is absurd.
At least we don't have a ridiculously huge event happening here in the next few days.
February 1, 2011 (That is one huge chunk of ice...)
February 4, 2011 (Not only has it not gone away, there's more of it for crying out loud!!!)
Ohhh..... Christmas Tree
As much as I hate the stuff (and believe me, I do), it can be quite pretty... for approx 7 seconds.
And just in case you needed a reminder, here I am 5 days ago in 78-degree weather. That jacket? Yeah, I didn't need it.
(Also, if you expected to see pictures of me frolicking around in this crap, I have but one question: Do you even know me at all? SICK.)
