Snow!


It snowed here yesterday! Here in east Texas. It was snowing when I looked out the window a little before 7:00 am and kept on snowing till after 9:30. I was a "little under the weather" so was at home. I napped a lot so don't know exactly when it stopped. It was completely gone by 1.

My father, who is 83, said that when he was a kid here it used to snow 3 or 4 times in the winter with enough snow to play in, make snowmen, have snowball fights, do all the things kids love to do with snow. I found that interesting as we rarely get snow now and when we do it doesn't stick. This snow was very wet so wasn't good snowball snow.


It piled up on the grass and on the vehicles. As you can see it didn't stick on the pavement.
It piled up on this little garden toad. He sure looks cold.

Rusty saw snow for the first time. He sniffed and sniffed. Then he bounced around and played some. Finally, his feet got cold and he ran to the house to get in.

We woke up to a blanket of snow....some people would call it a dusting but since we don't get much of that white stuff I call it a SNOW.

YUP! That's the way ti has been this winter. Everyone but us gets the snow. sigh I enjoyed your photos in spite of being jealous. Hope you are feeling better. Since it didn't stick t the pavement, you didn't have to shovel. . .

Hope you feel better. Rusty must've had fun exploring, but prefers the dry indoors.

Snow in East Texas - yep, I saw that on the news today.

Guess what, Sharon - it was mid-nineties here today and it's going to be high nineties tomorrow!

I'm so glad that Rusty got to see his first snow! Patch used to chase the snowflakes around when he was younger. Of course he had a Black lab buddy back then and she was obsessed with chasing anything around. Especially tennis balls. Patch had to compete with her-lol! Too bad the snow happened on a Saturday and not a school day-jk!
