Snowed in/ North TX
« on: March 07, 2008, 08:44:45 pm »
The blizzard of 08 ;D. Course if your a true Texan and it snows you have to run out with the kids and build a snowman as fast as you can (law of the land :D). We got (they say) 8 to 9 inches here, but looked like 5 to 6 to me.
 Got these huntin points built over last two days along with rescueing everyone that called for it - those fingers get to hurtin when their cold :)...

Hey Paul, nice snowman, man.   :o  Does she do the pointing and yelling on the snowman projects? ;D

Kind of unusual that you got the snow and we got nothing but cold air.  I guess the gulf moisture stalled out.

Nice points too.  I tried doing some knappin' last night while waiting to pick my daughters up from band practice.  I know what you mean about cold hands.  I finally had to quit because my fingers got numb and I don't think the school would appreciate me building a camp fire in the commons.

Well thanks Dana, I'm flattered ;D. No thanks we don't need anymore snow :).. David, i'll get you some rocks boxed up and mailed as soon as I can find em :). That's more snow than i care to see from now on - had my garden in two weeks ago and a lot of it had sprouted, I'll check the damage here in a couple of days. She was kinda telling me how SHE was going to build that snowman while she was playing around with dogs Otoe - kids ::).
 Thanks Steve - that's the most excellent snow we've had to build a snowman in the last fifteen years that I can recall ;D.

Dang, even the snow storms are big in Texas!....we have had more snow this winter here in Kansas than i can remember in the recent few years, although we do get our fair share in a normal season.  Great looking points cowboy. you know, if i had the tools and had starting knapping when we had the big ice storm/power outage back in December, i would be so much further ahead than i am know....lol.
