The Great Winter Storm of '09

First there was Ike and now this....


Not only do pigs fly, but it snows in Houston.

Can you believe? We had real snow - in HOUSTON!

Look at my poor bougainvillea covered in snow.


Look at the philodendrons weighed down with snow.


Look at the backyard.


Look at my silly children.


OK, some are sillier than others.

A good time was had by all. It will be 70 by Tuesday. No complaints here! That's the way I like my snow. Short and sweet.

I wondered if you got some of the snow-after I watched the news. We got a dusting yesterday morning.

I heard about that, and saw several photos. Talk about bizarre! Who would've ever thought that it would snow first in Houston before here in our area. (We haven't had any yet. Suburbs 20-30 miles north of us had a dusting, but nothing here.)

SO odd. I bet the kids had a blast!

Hugs,
