Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

I love cold weather and I love snow. The sound of softly falling snow in the trees is the most peaceful sound I have ever heard. So when I looked out the window at 10:50 this morning I let out a yelp of joy.

It's snowing! In Houston! On December 4!!

This is definitely something that doesn't happen often, much less 2 years in a row. This snow sets a record for Houston, the earliest snowfall on record. And it's supposed to go on until around 5pm with freezing starting in the early afternoon. We've been told to expect anywhere from a few inches to half a foot.

It hasn't stopped as of now, we've even had some long periods of heavy snow. Hopefully I'll have some pictures to add later.


  1. I'd like to see a nice, normal snow again. Recent memories of inches upon inches of ice, cracking limbs, lack of electricity, and general bitterness still permeate my mind.

    Have fun with it!

  2. WOW! I love snow in Texas - not so much here in Utah (way too much), but as a rare treat it is great! Glad you get to enjoy it!
