snow is falling

Last week we had snow in Houston, Texas. It fell in downtown Houston, and north and east of the city. I work downtown, and live West. I missed it completely. I got off work, and then it snowed! I would have loved to see it. The last time I saw it, was Christmas Eve 2004~it was magical! Our children built a small snowman on top of my Expedition. The next year I used a picture of it in our Christmas cards. We don't get snow this far south very often, so when it falls here it is monumental! It was such a big deal that a book was published called The South Texas Christmas Miracle 2004. And, then, More Snow ~ The South Texas Christmas Miracle was published. Both are beautiful coffee-table books, full of the most gorgeous snow scenes in Texas! I now see they are considering publishing a 5th Anniversay Edition in 2009. As you can see, we are really excited by snow!
Since, I missed it, I added it to my blog...thanks to Daryl, and her post on how to get it!
While online, I also pulled up this
website~How to get snow in Texas. How much fun is that? Can you imagine paying for it? As much as I love it, I won't pay for it. But, I do love snow. Can you tell?

I bought the above little bird, made by JoAnne the fabulous artist in Bellville, who filled Nothing Ordinary Antiques & Oddities with the most beautiful flock of birds! He is now perched in my Christmas tree.

What an amazing thing - snow in Houston! It never even came close to getting that cold when we were there! I bet it was just beautiful!

Have a very Merry Christmas, my friend!

I would LOVE to give you some snow! Take as much as you like! Completely free of charge! Just come & get it! Any time you like would be just fine! I have several shovels, but you do need to bring your own method of transport...... See you soon!

We had snow in south Louisiana, too! Not here, though :( It went just below us, but New orleans and Baton Rouge got about 8"!!! We got a little snow here last year though, and it was gorgeous!

You can come here. It's actively coming down, with a mad wind to match, blowing it every which way!

Wow! We rarely ever ever get snow here in Vallejo,CA....
I bet you'd have just gazed up at the sky and enjoyed every second of the beauty.
