"Outside the snow is fallin'..."

...and brothers and sisters are callin', "you-hoo". Yep. That's right, snow in Texas. A LOT of snow!

This morning I woke up around 7:15 and looked out the window and it was snowing! The ground was already covered in 1-2 inches. And it hasn't ceased to snow at all today. We have received around 5-6 inches, and in some places there's an accumulation of 7-8 inches! When was the last time THAT happened in Texas??

We've had fun making snowmen, snow forts, an igloo and having [friendly] snow ball fights. :) After being out there for several hours (not in a row), I'm inside, ah, um, freezing. It's cold inside too! :)

Our backyard

A little more than 2" at around 9am. Since then we've gotten a lot more.

Hi! I know this was from Thursday but I just wanted to say the same thing happened to us! Isn't snow beautiful? On Wednesday we had a snowball fight with the very last of the snow.

Snow is wonderful! But, I don't think I'd want to live where they get FEET per winter!! That's a little too much. :)

Sounds like you all had a fun time with the snow as well!
