This was a week and a half ago now, but it's always a very momentous blog-worthy day when snow comes to Houston. We didn't get a lot, as you see, but there was definite white falling from the sky. Snow is snow, after all. And I always love that everyone and everything in the city goes into hibernation for the duration whenever the potential for snow enters the forecast. It was a very happy Friday for us when Dan could come home by 3:00 in the afternoon.

This is the amount of accumulated snow on our car the day the city shut down. Don't laugh. Anna, David, and I had fun running outside and catching flakes in our mouths, though. Something about snow really helps it feel like Christmas. I love it!

Oh yes! I always loved it when they shut down school for the 1/8th of an inch amount! That's Texas for ya!

That's about as much snow as we got in Orangevale, CA this month and they shut down some of the schools :) Love these states.

I remember the day it snowed while I was on my mission in Ft. Worth. People were outside everywhere having snowball fights and building snowmen. It was the best!
