Snow Day In Tx!

Recommended Posts

I'm originally from NY where something like wet pavement does NOT get a snow day. But I woke up this morning and my university is closed over a wimpy wet sidewalk and an inch of snow on the grass, happy surprise! (I'm in TX), Anyone have any fun snow day ideas?

Well of course you should spend the day studying!!

Or maybe bake some gluten-free cookies and lounge around feeling pleased with yourself for getting a free day off!

Well, I don't know about yall, but I have had enough of this cold weather. I want my kids to go back to school! And I couldn't even take my dd to her 9 month check up cuz the dr couldn't even leave her home! She was frozen in! And my kids keep coming in from outside all wet and freezing.

I live in Tx so I don't have to deal w/ the cold weather! I want it GONE! The north can have it all back!

Nope, I am in central Tx, halfway between houston and Austin. We have no local groups here. The closest one is about 45 minutes away. Too far for me!

And let me just say, I am so glad that everything is thawing out! I was really getting tired of staying inside!

Is that around San Antonio? There is one there! But maybe my geography is all wrong...

Growing up in the great state of Texas I remember having snow days once in awhile. My dad still lives in TX and before he retired he did auto claims adjustments. He loved snow days, lol. Now living in Missouri the kids have been out of school 4 days this week, one of my employees is about to go nuts. When we used to ave snow days in rural West Texas we would build forts and have snow ball fights. Then go in for cookies and cocoa. Good memories. :rolleyes:

No,no take it....it's a gift this year :lol:


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
