Since I was talking about snow and making "gravel angels" in yesterdays post I thought I would show you some real snow. This is our house the year of a lifetime. They called this the "snow of a century" because it might snow like this once in a century. This was Dec. 2004 and I had gone to pick up a friend at the airport the day before this snow in Houston. As we were coming back it was snowing. As we drove it was snowing and snowing harder and was piling up on the road. Now because this is Texas, we don't have the plows and equipment needed to clean the roads so it was piling and there were tons of cars on the side of the roads. What normally takes 2hrs to drive took me more like 8hrs if I remember correctly. I was traveling 20mph on the road to stay on the road. Any more and the van would slide around. That was a scary drive but we made it home ok and the following morning this is what we woke up to.
Of course, as Texans that don't ever get to see snow in Texas. Everyone and I mean everyone in our town was outdoors this morning. Some adults have never been in snow before or have ever made a snowman or a snowball. So it was interesting to see adults acting like kids out in the snow. Yep, even us. We had to take that picture. hehehehe We are actually on our knees.
This was our first attempt at making a snowman. I know you all from up North will laugh but what do we know?
This is our view out of the front door. It was truly amazing and beautiful.
Now, if I want to see this again I'll have to wait another century so I think I might have to go up North just to see snow. We have been known to do that.
