Fort Worth is part of the North Texas area known as the Metroplex. Although we here in FW don't want to admit it, we are inextricably linked with Dallas. And as part of the Metroplex, we hosted a number of pre-Super Bowl parties and activities this last week. In fact, ESPN set up their broadcast center outside my husband's office in downtown Fort Worth:

If you have been following the Super Bowl coverage, you know that we had record cold, snowy, icy weather here this last week. The roads have been treacherous (I had a harrowing trip up I-35 last Thursday) and the weather inconvenienced many out of town visitors. But the Super Bowl went on as planned, with 103,000 people in the stadium, and it was a great game.

Honestly, we never have weather like that. Well, almost never. And spring is just around the corner. I promise!
