About three and a half months ago we had Hurricane Harvey. Today we had snow on the coast as did much of South Texas! The last time it snowed was on Christmas Eve of 2004. Early this morning neighbors were out again (as after Harvey but this time welcoming the change in weather) reveling in the magical wonderland that our neighborhood had become. We were bundled up in coats, hats and gloves that had been stored away and seldom used. The past couple of weeks have been very warm and air conditioners were still running and shorts were still being worn. Kids and adults were trying to make snowmen but with meager results as most had little snow-making experience.
For those for whom snow is a normal occurrence, feel free to skip this post: spoiler ahead, it is mostly of snow! But perhaps I can be forgiven as it may not snow for another thirteen years. Husband gets the credit for them.
By noon the sun came out beautifully and the snow began to melt, but for a time our coast was a magical place and children created memories of the year it snowed. Cheers!
