It was a cold, wet, miserable day here in H-Town - 35 degrees and a steady, drizzly rain. A sharp contrast to the muggy 75 degree day we had yesterday. I felt bad for Hubby that he got such crappy weather on his birthday.
When I picked the kids up from school they were all a-twitter, saying that everyone at school said it was going to snow tonight! I reassured them it was NOT going to snow. It only snows here once in a blue moon, and since we had a Christmas snow several years ago, it didn't seem likely to happen again this soon.
At about 5:00 the rain turned to sleet. Sleet! We got all excited and ran outside to take some pictures. We don't even see sleet much around these parts.
By 5:30 the sleet was turning to snow! "I told you so! I told you so!" Little Son sang as he danced around. I told him to calm down - it certainly wasn't going to last long. Still, we better get some more pictures before it stops.
But ya'll - it kept snowing. And snowing. And snowing! For the next 6 hours!!! We were in utter amazement - it looked like a snow globe outside! I was like a giddy kid running outside and taking pictures every 10 minutes as the scene would change!
We have a Christmas tree outside on our deck this year - look how beautiful it is with its REAL flocking!
Of course we went out and played in it - we threw snowballs at each other, and even saved one in the freezer! Every time I would come in and warm up, I would look outside and see it still coming down and have to go back out there with my camera!
