And It Did Snow!

Wow - a new record for Dallas. When it finished snowing this morning we had 12.5 inches, smashing the old record of 7 inches. The wet heavy snow was more than many of the older trees could handle. The big live oaks with all their leaves were bent to the ground in places. Many trees and big branches came down. We are lucky to still have power, but most of our neighborhood doesn't. The main road into the 'hood is blocked by a downed tree. Sure hate to see that - it was over 50 years old.

A look by our back fence.

It was eerily beautiful last night. It was very light even at 9:00pm.

Yeah, nature surprises us again and again) I love snow, specially when I do not have to leave home) I just turn on a TV, make a cappuccino, wrap up with my quilt and have a wonderful rest.
