A week or so before winter break, we had a cold snap in Oklahoma City. Rachel reported on some EXCITING sprinkler ice we saw walking home from school.
This was a short video I took from our front porch in January, when we received another blast of winter weather!
We shared a live webcast over Ustream yesterday on Christmas Eve of our front yard, as a record-breaking 14 inches of snow fell on Edmond and Oklahoma City! We recorded two segments during the day. The “Peaceful Christmas” Pandora channel was streaming as the audio channel for these webcasts.

Today we enjoyed a bit of sledding and more playing in the snow in our front yard. This was an image of PURE delight on Rachel’s face as we got ready for another sled run together!
If you’re wanting to order a hat like mine in this photo, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but this was a custom creation I made several years ago when we lived in Lubbock using a stocking cap and a puppet. 🙂
Here is the Flickr slideshow of all the images we took on granddaddy’s camera yesterday and today. His Sony camera ROCKS. Someday we’ll get a camera that takes images this good! We’re fortunate he’s willing to share with us now!
Couldn’t resist asking Rachel to provide an audio explanation for long shadows today at the park!
There’s reportedly two feet of snow right now in parts of southwest Kansas. here in central Oklahoma, we just received a dusting of snow overnight as the rain turned to snow. This afternoon, it’s lightly snowing and looks just beautiful, making for a perfect Saturday to enjoy coffee by the fire and watch our kids roam out in the neighborhood bundled up like Michelin men and women!
