WHAT WE DID: DECEMBER 9TH

Ice. Many ices. Inside lots of time. So long me forget words. Need words for write blog post me think. Cabin fever bad for words. Hashtag word, right? Me think so. Use it to find pictures for blog post. That way, less write. Need find other humans. Talk and learn words. Ice gone?

Icemaggedon 2013 otherwise known as DentonIce, Icemagadan (y'all can't spell), and a myriad of other names was something special. While many slowly developed cabin fever, we also had a chance to walk around to visit neighbors, cook some good food, drink some good bourbon and get most of the way through the Harry Potter movies. Y'all ended up taking so many photos, we decided to break some of them up into sections. Earlier last week, we were already excited for today's What We Did, but that was back when we had thought it would be full of pics of the Holiday Tree Lighting, Help Portrait, and Andrew W.K. My how things changed, huh? Most of those events were canceled and rescheduled. Keep your ears tuned to the Den10 to find out when they're happening now. Photo above by Michael Seman.

APPEARANCES

Most of Denton was glimmering under a few inches of ice. When it stopped being aggravating, it was kinda pretty. Photo by Kendall Bales.

COOKING

Like we said, the storm had lots of us stuck inside, baking. Here's some baked French toast made by a WDDI staffer. Guess which one.

Hot chocolate apparently warmed the hearts of many of you this weekend. Evie Marie's Mexican hot cocoa might have looked the most scrumptious, though. You save some for us, Evie?

Oak St. Drafthouse had their own hot chocolate they were selling. Hannah Luxenberg was the only one there when she got hers.

Michael Seman texted his way through a quiche recipe successfully. Wonder how many ice days this quiche made it through.

VENTURING OUT

The Denton Record Chronicle (and managing editor Dawn Cobb's personal Facebook page) did a great job of keeping us updated. We always enjoy a fast news cycle and this weekend's events definitely provided one. Between unfortunate events, road conditions and school closings, we were refreshing Twitter like nobody's business.

While many local businesses actually tried to be open, not surprisingly this was the signage in front of most spots.

The amount of time that Dentonites could stay indoors varied wildly. Jessica Hume (and many others) venture out for food. In this case, it was chili (not the dog). Photo by Jessica Hume.

On Sunday, we saw a brief three hours of above freezing temperatures (and some sunshine) during which time, many people tried to get three days worth of outside activities accomplished. Photo by Shaina Sheaff.
