The boys still have school this morning. There is a great layer of snow to play in out there, but they have to go to school. Since it will be getting into the 50s today, it will probably be mostly melted by the time they get out of school.
People - this is TEXAS. It might snow and actually accumulate an inch or so every 2-3 years. You have built in snow days, so why not use one so the kids can experience the pure joy of a snowball fight or building a snowman?
Instead, it's off to school where they will stay inside because it is 'too cold' and 'too wet' to play outside.
