There and Back Again - Record Snow Fall

The extreme snowfall of February 11-12, 2010 goes down as THE snowiest 24-hour period in the history DFW weather records, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). An amazing 12.5" was measured, 11.2" of which fell on the 11th.

I only live about a half-mile from the Expressway which goes into Dallas, but it took me nearly two minutes to get there, as I was driving a paltry 25mph - and nearly two minutes to get back.

I've been meaning to post a drive to the highway and back for nearly three years. I wanted my first post of this to be during the Spring, when its gorgeous beyond words, but this snowscape will suffice for now:
