And Then The Snow Came


Living in Texas, I always wish for a white Christmas although it rarely happens.  This year it came a couple days later, following a Christmas in the high 60's.  Rain came pouring down Saturday evening... and froze, followed by a snowstorm that continued for twenty four hours.  It's the first time I've ever experienced "thundersnow" with lightning and thunder rumbling in the background as it snowed.  Now we have ice-covered roads and inches of the white stuff with drifts that blocked in our vehicles this morning.  Remind me never to wish for snow again, I promise that I won't miss it one bit!

    1. Yes, new-fallen snow is very beautiful. It's the shoveling it and getting around in it that I am not fond of as I grow older.

  2. It's beautiful, but if you are not accustomed to it, it can shut down your whole area, making it difficult if not impossible to get to work or anywhere else. This is what i tell Sweetie when he says he wants to live where there is snow, he had no idea what it's like to have to shovel the stuff just to get out of the driveway.

    1. Exactly Mimi. Our city does not have adequate snow removal crews and equipment, and driving becomes extremely hazardous with drivers that are not experienced in driving on icy or snowy roads. I worried about Papa Bear as he shoveled to free his truck from the drifts this morning.

    1. I've been loving the extremely mild winter weather up until now too, Clark. It was nearly 70 here on Christmas Day. Two days later we were in the deep freeze buried under snow, that's hard on body and soul. Still, I'm thankful that winter shall be of shorter duration this year, and I will hope that this constitutes our total snowfall for the season. There are many years we have had far less.

  5. I have been reading about the crazy weather y'all are having. Seems Mother Nature is mixing things up. It was 80* here Christmas day warm even for us. I fear a February ice storm like last year. Don't go out stay warm and safe at home if you can.

    1. The weather is indeed mixed up this year! Our Christmas Day was near 70, and gorgeous. Two days later we had this, while at the same time tornados were wrecking havoc near Dallas.

  6. LOL! I think I might have heard thunder-snow once in D.C. But I wasn't sure. It might have just been my imagination. It looks like you had a very Merry Christmas!

  7. One does have to be careful about what they wish for. I'm sure that snow was a huge surprise. Stay safe & warm. Happy New Year!

    1. Indeed, snow is nice, but the older I get the more I appreciate warmer weather. Happy New Year to you too!
