Texas Snow!!!

Feb. 11 the weather forecast called for rain turning to snow mid morning. But we woke up to snow already covering the ground. It kept falling all day. We had an all-time record breaking snowfall of 12 inches - the most snow to fall here in one day ever on record!

After admiring snow photos from so many of you, we finally got some. I plan to put up a series of Texas snow photos the next few days - not Colorado this time, but my own neighborhood.

That is simply awesome! I look forward to your Texas snow photos!

I've been waiting to see your snow! It will be good to see. What a white out it was!

@MrsAmber: Thanks! It really was a white out at times as it fell.

Tamara from Aarschot, Belgium

Impressive !!! It's amazing that you had so much snow up there... a great capture Barbara :)

@Tamara: Thank you, Tamara.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

LOL....good for you Barbara! It doesn't happen very often so live in the moment! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: So right!! ;-))) Many of us are still smiling and talking about the snow.

Hilde Morin from Portland, Oregon, United States

While you are getting all the snow we have had the mildest winter!

@Hilde Morin: I've been following Glacier, Montana web cams this winter, and they just have not had much snow so far either. It was our turn, at least for one fun day. ;-)

Sandy Weston from Madison, Maine, United States

Wow 12 inches!! This photo is great! Look at that snow fall! I'm looking forward to see more :)

@Sandy Weston: It did vary around the area, but the official record was twelve. Everyone just went crazy. Thanks. There will be 5 more.

The Big Guy from Regina, Canada

As I commented on Sandy's blog, I'm tired of snow. However it amazes me that the southern state of Texas gets snow because it might be someplace I'd like to come for a winter holiday, but not now!! I’m looking forward to your next Texas snow shots. This one is definitely a good start...

@The Big Guy: Well, LOL, I guess you can come on down because except for tiny spots, it's all gone, and the temp. got up to 50F today, with sunshine. Thanks. I'll post a few more. ;-)

A beautiful site from back home.

@dik: Thank you.

Nance E from Cary, United States

I love how you got it coming down. It looks like a photo effect but it's snow! You got more snow than we did this year in Cary, NC. We got about 7-8 total over a span of 2 weeks. Most snow in 6 years for us.

@Nance E: Thanks. No photo effect needed. LOL I would have thought NC would get more than that per year. It still beats our average since we are lucky to get an inch or two.

What a beautiful scene! (especially from here in California!) Hope you warm up soon!
