The White Stuff

I have been to Yellowstone National Park in the winter with over three feet of snow on the ground, but for some reason, snow in Houston always gets me giddy. In the last 30 years it has snowed here, at least where I live on the south side of town, four times. Last night about an inch and a half of snow collected on my front lawn.

The most amusing things you will see in Houston when it snows are photos on local TV of 9 inch snowmen built from accumulations on cars. We also don't have as many plants and trees that turn brown in the winter, so you see snow on palm trees, southern oaks fully leafed, and green grass. Of course, my flower beds with all their tropical plants will now be dead for the rest of the winter.
