Snow in Texas!



A totally crazy week for weather down here this week. We were 72 degrees on Tuesday. A cold front started blowing in on Wednesday and by 5:00 the northern part of our area was starting to see snow flakes. By 10:00 in the evening the front yard was completely covered with snow. A beautiful site. Unfortunately my camera batteries decided to take a siesta and went out. My friends to my rescue though. Knowing I love hearts my friend took a picture of the top of her hot tub with a heart (thank you!) Another friend sent me this beautiful photo from her front porch. (thank you too!) This is such a phenomenon for us. The last time we had snow was in 2004 -- a white Christmas -- but I was living in California at the time and missed it. Before that it was forever since we had seen it. Of course today it was back to close to 60 -- go figure. We get all goofy down here when it snows because it's such a rare treat. I love snow. It's so beautiful.

I can understand your enthusiasm Anj when snow is a novelty. We haven't seen any snow yet this year here but when you shovel and shovel and have to drive through it each and every day the joy wears off rather quickly...wink...wink...

We are freezing here too, Anj! Kinda a bummer, cause I have a house full of restless people! I just want to turn them out, then lock the door!
Enjoy the rare snow!
