The White Stuff.

Last Friday, the Houston area saw something very unusual...
white stuff floating from the sky...
SNOW... IN TEXAS!The weather folks had been forecasting it all week, but really, who believes those guys anyways?
But it did, and for about two hours it felt like Christmas in Houston. We started the morning off Christmas shopping when it started. Just a few snowflakes began to fall and we were all excited thinking that would be it. Then we went to lunch and it really began to come down. The picture doesn't do it justice at all. I only wish I had taken the kids out to play in it here. Because by the time we got home the snow had started to disappear from the ground and stop.
But it was fun while it lasted.

This morning it was still cold. A refreshing cold. I was excited to put on coats and hats. The weather makes me want to snuggle up on the couch and enjoy the Christmas tree, wrap presents, indulge in holiday shopping, bake cookies and spend time with my boys.
The weather guys are now saying in the next week the weather will be back in the 70s... just in time for Christmas.

That's so funny that you say you were excited for it to be cold and ut on coats and hats! :) I can't believe it's going to be 70 for Christmas - how nice would that be?? It's been FREEZING here lately!
