Sunset at Prien Lake Park

Sunset at Prien Lake Park

Thursday, December 11, 2008


Here's something you don't see often around here. Snow! I'm told it hasn't snowed here in Lake Charles since 1989! Andrew was thrilled, and simultaneously disappointed because school was not cancelled. Not an unreasonable emotion, as several other nearby parishes did cancel or delay school. There's no salt down here, so roads can easily get slick in weather like this. If a certain road is icy, they simply close the road. I took a photo quick this morning because it will likely melt soon after the sun comes up, a high in the 50s is predicted for today. The temperature will be back to 70 by Sunday.

Isn't it beautiful! Love it!

I declared a snow day for my kids, and then they cancelled school here right after it started. Good move--get everyone out driving in it TWICE that way.

Wow. Here it's snowed like ten times and the stupid salt trucks always have to come in and save the day.
I like your picture.

Hard to believe! Your pics are great. Sorry Andrew had to go to school on a snow day!!!!

We have about the same amount of snow on the ground right now. The kids are ready for more so they can go sledding, but the weather won't cooperate. It snows half an inch, just enough to wreak havoc on the roads, and then quits. We've had several really scary moments driving on ice in the past few days. Hooray for the salt trucks! Gotta get my tires checked.
