Snow Week

Although we don't usually get a lot of snow here in Texas, this week we did, in small doses.  First it was the ice coming in on Tuesday and it finally snowed so that we could see it on Thursday night.  Schools were closed all over Texas for the whole week!  Too bad the weather was not predictable far in advance because this week is Super Bowl Week and both Fort Worth and Dallas had prepared a lot of big shindigs to welcome people from all over the country.

I love this picture of the snowflakes falling in my back yard at 2:30 am in the morning.  Steam is floating over the outside light as each flake vaporizes when it hits the warmth of the light.
The metal bug on my deck is the
true measure of the depth of snow that fell last night.  All told the accumulation was about 2 inches. 

February is usually the worst month for ice and snow here and it's only the beginning of the month so I guess we'd better prepare for more.  It's a nice time to take a vacation to Hawaii!
