Snow in Florida? – Yes There Was!

Snow in Florida? – Yes There Was!

It’s been cold here! I mean really, really cold! To be 17 degrees at one point in the Florida Panhandle is not often heard of. H has been out of school for three days and now we are heading to Troy, AL for SEUS where it was 9 degrees this morning! Are we crazy? Probably.

For being so spread out the whole family had a taste of this southern winter storm!

Jessie build a snow girl in Atlanta. Cadence only lasted three minutes before going back in and Ethan kept knocking it over so she finished this lovely masterpiece by herself  at nap time.

Terri said that she had to drive to school – work this morning in 14 degree weather in central Louisiana. “You can ice skate in my front yard!”

Kerri – in central Louisiana also, has been sick, but her kids have enjoyed the not-so-very-common-in-that-area snow and ice days. Schools back in today. 😦

Amie – in north Louisiana has less snow, but no school, Cold, cold temperatures though. Good days to stay warm inside!  I’m sure the girls loved the extra vacation days even though it was COLD!

Andrew is in Troy, AL and they had lots and lots of snow, and ice, and wind, and three days of Troy University closed down! He did learn to make snow ice cream and thought that was a treat. Anything to keep him off the icy roads!

It has been an experience for all!

I’ve had deadlines to meet and not much time to write. Just stayed inside and sewed, sewed, sewed! Deadline met and delivering this morning!

If you missed  ‘Oh No! Bear Has Holes!’  there will be an update soon. Maybe tonight I can get that done. Here’s a hint – Bear has many, many, many relatives!

Stay warm and stay tuned!

  1. It’s only fair to share the snow and cold. We don’t want to hog it all up in the northeast!


  2. Oh and today we went sledding on the front hill in the laundry basket! 😀


  3. We see it as a treat. How crazy are we?


  4. We made the snow ice cream too! We used 1 cup sugar and 2 cups milk in place of the condensed milk. It was good but a little gritty from the sugar and melted really fast!



I only have one rule - Leave me your thoughts! ;)
