SNOW IN HOUSTON!!
It's snowing in Houston, Texas!! It's the earliest snowfall on record, I believe. Another way it's unusual is that it also snowed last year and it rarely does that two years on a row. Everyone is in a dither around here, especially since we are to get some "accumulation", as the forecasters call it. It was raining when I got up about 7:00 this morning and it has gradually mixed in some snow. It's still a mix, but getting to be more snow and less rain. The worst part is that the temps are dropping and we are going to have a hard freeze tonight. With all this moisture we will definitely have some ice on the streets and bridges. A lot of the yahoos around here can't drive right when it rains so it will be interesting to see what happens with the ice. I tried to take some pictures of the snow earlier, but I found it to be very elusive. I'll keep trying and post the pictures when you can actually see it.
