Ice Storm (Snow Fail)


We first thought we would get 6 inches, then two... and then ice with flurries... but here we only received ice.  The Palm Trees around here took a beating (because of surface area I suppose).  I think the precipitation here is done... and the kids are making the most of the situation.  Thanks to a friends post on Facebook we borrowed a  fun idea.
