It is currently snowing in my little pocket of Houston, Texas.

I can’t speak for the rest of the city, but it’s pretty cool to be me, right now.

If you ignore the concrete surrounding that is my life, the pictures came out pretty good!

The last time it snowed was about 3 or 4 years ago, on Christmas Eve and we got 6 inches. None of this is sticking right now, but it’s still oh-so-cool!!

    • Heather, we are next! I live so close to you, I’m an hour and a half from Shreveport. We saw the snow heading this way on the Doppler Radar this morning.
      I am looking forward to it! I have not seen snow since I visited my son at Great Lakes, Illinois when he graduated from Navy Boot Camp. That was 2002.

    • It’s pretty exciting stuff for us southerners, isn’t it?

      I have to dig out the photo from a few years ago. It was absolutely beautiful. At six inches, it was just enough to cover everything without being a real problem.

      By the time I had resized the photos and uploaded them here, it was already over. I’m hopeful that we’ll see more this year, though!

    • I had a little snow too in San Antonio this morning.  This is a picture I took this morning

      Of course, being originally from NY this wouldn’t be considered snow, but it was fun to see since I haven’t seen snow in 13 years.

    • I’ll take these few flurries anytime ladies.  I’ll never forget the blizzard of ‘96.  I was living in Hackensack, NJ at the time and it took me 4 days to dig out my car.  After that, I moved to Miami and I vowed..NEVER AGAIN!!!  I rather deal with Florida’s humidity or Texas’ scorching heat any day.

    • Scott’s been freaking out all day, lol. He hates the cold.

      I am of the opinion that it is much easier to find a way to warm up when you‘re cold than it is to cool off when hot. I love the cold.

      I moved back to Texas from Michigan because driving on snowy/icy streets just ain’t for me.

      Just goes to prove that we CAN‘T have it all, I guess.

    • I moved here from California 2 years ago, although I’m a Florida girl. I miss those Cali days, Yana!
      But you know, now that I’ve actually moved back where there are defined seasons I find myself enjoying it. The hard part for me is wearing real shoes. I still have all my Long Beach sandals! Had to buy some real shoes. But hey, any reason to shoe shop is fine with me!

    • Raysa, that picture looks like the snow we get around here in Georgia. If we are even lucky enough to get that much.
      I do love the snow. I wouldn’t want to have it all the time, but a couple of times each winter would be awesome.
      It was 27 degrees here on Monday, it is in the upper 50’s today. It’s crazy!
      At least when it snows, you know it’s going to be cold. You never know how to dress here.

      Feather, enjoy the snow and the pictures are great!

    • We are having storms right now.  Thunder...lightning....and a hard rain that I had the pleasure of getting in leaving the grocery store.  It wasn’t raining that hard going in and I figured I wouldn’t melt just to run in the store.  Purchased 3 items...came right back out and it was a monsoon.  Of course..no umbrella and I got soaked.  

      It started warming up yesterday and it is so humid and muggy right now.  I turned my air conditioning back on.  

      I wonder if South Carolina is supposed to get some snow....haven’t heard a forecast lately.  We hardly ever get snow where I live and I’m 2 hours from ATlanta.

    • This was Christmas morning from 2004. We had just moved back to Texas from St. Thomas in August of that same year, so this was completely weird to experience.

      Neither Katy (16 at the time) nor Jonathan (14 at the time) had experienced snow when they were old enough to remember, and it was our year to have them for Christmas morning, so it was amazing to share this with them. We had midnight snowball fights the night before with all the neighbors.  

      Since I was managing the apartment complex, it was no biggie! ;)

    • We had snow here in NE TN over the weekend. At the Christmas tree lighting, the mayor kept saying, Yeah, I know the snow is keeping everyone home-like snow at Christmas was a bad thing-and it was like 2 inches, maaaaaaybe, on the grass.

    • I’m right there with you MaryClark, only I am about 20 minutes north of Atlanta.
      About 30 more miles north of here, near the mountains, they get snow all the time. It’s amazing!
      We have had storms here today, tornado and flood watches. The temp seems to be dropping some now. There is snow to the west of us and north of us....maybe we’ll get some!

    • If it snows here....oh my Lord....you would think the world is coming to the end and the grocery stores are going to close forever!!!!!!!

      Go get that milk and bread........

      Forget that....I go and get stuff I can cook on the grill, drinks...and chips...

      But we rarely get it.......and it certainly doesn’t keep people in....

    • Lisa:  I have a niece and her husband and little girl that lives in Sugar Hill, GA (Gwinnett County).  Know where that is?  

      Her husband teaches at North Gwinnett County....

      You all might get some snow...but it stops right before reaching Augusta....I hate this hot and cold stuff....makes people sick.

    • lcmiddles, I know what you mean when you say you wouldnt mind a little snow.  The weather here has been crazy too.  Yesterday the high was 74 degrees and dropped to 33.  This morning we started out at 34 had a high of 58 and its suppose to drop to 28 tonight.  Needless to say, I’ll be indoors.

      Feathermaye, that picture of Christmas 2004 looks so nice.  I don’t mind snow when I can look at it from a window.  I have a problem with it when I have to shovel it and drive in it.

    • Raysa, it was really cool because the sidewalks were just warm enough to melt it, but the grass was cold enough for it to stick.

      It got all nasty and dirty later, but those first couple of hours before human feet disturbed it was gorgeous.

      It’s currently 40 degrees in Houston with an overnight low forecast of 29 degrees, and a 50% chance of rain and snow. This is crazy weather for us, even at this time of year!!

    • You girls are crackin’ me up!!! I woke up this morning to a big fat 0 degrees on my digital thermometer, and Monday night -Tuesday morning we had a foot of snow come down.  I have spent my whole life in Wisconsin so you just come to expect it.  Shoveling out from underneath it all is no picnic though.  I can’t even imagine not having snow for Christmas though...

    • Kiss,
      You naughty girl! I love it! So far the roads are slick, it’s getting colder. Days like this make me glad I drive a truck.
      And, like Teeky said, the forecast for Sunday here is 71! WTF! I’m lucky I have not gotten sick already. (fingers crossed)

    • I am further south than Lisa and Mary (in Georgia.) We never get snow. :( I remember once... 1972 that we got 18 inches and it lasted for a week and a half...but with no power. We had a fireplace, and the freezer was on the porch so it was a grand holiday for us kids.

    • Raysa, what you posted is an accumulation of snow flurries...haha.  I never really pay much attention to the weather here in West TX.  West Texas, is one of those areas, where you can have all 4 seasons in one day, I kid you not.  Many times, they predict something it is usually the opposite.  A few years back it did not rain for about 3 years, during those years, they predicted rain almost every day

    • Jacquie that’s too funny.  I went from South Florida where it rains every day for months including having to deal with hurricanes, to Central Texas where it rains once every 3 months.  Each has its pros and cons.
