Alright, so let’s be clear – this is our business blog with all kinds of tips that you’ll love if you’re a new homeowner, looking to buy investment properties/fixer uppers, or wanting to sell your home fast. But IT’S SNOWING! Real snow! In Dallas! It’s hard to stay focused and on topic when we’re living in a very rare and very beautiful winter wonderland. So, here are some sow day tips on how to get the most out of this unusual weather, from our cash for houses Dallas team.
We’ve seen photos of the frozen pants challenge from all over the country and the world, but we’ve never really been able to participate – until now!
All you need to do is get a pair of pants, wet them thoroughly and leave them on a clothesline outdoors. Before they get completely frozen stiff (this happens in about 15 minutes when its single-digit temperatures outdoors), you take them down and mold them with your hands so that they look like there’s a person wearing them. Then you simply set them outside overnight in your front yard where they get frozen stiff.
You can get very creative with this challenge, and people have been posting pictures of entire frozen outfits in silly settings, so go wild and inspire your neighbors to do the same!
Usually when it snows in Dallas, you have to put quite a bit of effort into getting enough snow for even one snowball – but not this year! Wrap up warmly against the chilly wind, get out there and build a snow fort, make some snowballs and get the kids outdoors for an epic snow battle. Set up targets for kids to aim at, build a snowman army and pitch an epic but fun battle. Those spades and buckets you usually take to the beach really come in handy for this activity too. Running around outdoors isn’t just a great way to burn off that energy and have a great time, it’s also a perfect excuse for hot chocolate!
Humans aren’t the only ones who have been surprised by the snow, so it’s a good opportunity to support your local wildlife and have some fun at the same time. You can make home-made bird feeders to hang in the trees outside your windows, create nesting boxes for local owls, and even volunteer to assist at the DFW Wildlife Coalition!
Feeling a bit of cabin fever? We’re not as used to being cooped up indoors as our more northern neighbors, so it’s only natural to look for a good excuse to get out. And what better excuse is there than to help your neighbors? Grab some shovels or hire a snowblower, get a friend or family member to join you, and go help clear snow from driveways and pathways in your area. This is a great workout and a good deed, especially if you have elderly or disabled neighbors who would really appreciate a helping hand. At the same time, you can check up on neighbors who may have been isolated by the snow and unable to get out safely to buy groceries or get essentials – just remember to socially distance, keep your mask on and use your sanitizer!
