First Snow

The prairie had its first snow of the season this morning. It did not stay around long. Every bit was melted shortly after 10 AM. Fortunately, I took a couple of pictures of the white stuff before I left for work.

In all my 20 (times 2 and plus a couple more) years, I do not recall an earlier snowfall in Dallas.


  1. According to the newspaper, there was a bit of snow close to where I live in Northern California yesterday, which is extremely rare (and there was certainly not enough to take a photo like the charming ones in your post). Some are enjoying the rarity, but I'm just worried about my citrus and brugmansia. What can I say? When it comes to seasons, I love having a spring, summer and fall but am honest enough to admit I'd rather just read about winter.

  2. I don't mind the winter so much. It gives me a chance to rest and plan the next project. Snow, however, is not as much fun as it was when I was a kid. Back then, I could stay home and enjoy the snow. Today, I have to drive to work in it with all the bad drivers.

    Good luck with your tender plants.
