Baby, it’s really cold outside

As you may or may not know, it’s been REALĀ cold here in Dallas, Texas lately. Growing up in Texas, there have been many moments of exaggeration when it comes to the weather. This was not one of those moments. Parades and marathons were cancelled for the first time ever, entire highway systems shut down, icemageddon 2013 was in full swing. I haven’t seen snow too many times in my life, but I have a few times since living in Dallas. What was interesting about this storm, besides the fact that it was named Cleon, was the ice on the road was made from sleet. Not snow or rain that froze later on the ground. Sleet.

Friday, I was able to work from home which means I was also able to play a little after 5 p.m. Check out some of the shots I was able to get before I my fingers and toes went numb below:

Just in case it isn’t obvious, I really loved the way these trees look:
