The Snow Pics

 ***Caution Northerners, don't fall out of your chairs laughing when you see my snow pictures.***


It is very rare we get snow.  Our average temperature should be in the 60s right now.  And it will be 57 tomorrow.  Yeah!  Anyhow, people around these parts get pretty excited about a dusting of snow.  The husband and I, not so much.  We grew up in areas that got snow.  I remember my first year of college.  I was in the dorms and it started sleeting outside.  The girls went crazy cause it was "snowing" and went outside to play in it.  Some of them had never seen snow.  And actually, they didn't see it that day either.  It amazed me that people had never seen snow before.  

So the overnight temps were suppose to dip below freezing and everyone was scared the roads would be icy so schools and my work started 2 hours late.  Hey, I'm okay with that!  When I left the house around 9, the snow was already melting.  But I took pictures for y'all anyways.

I'm headed out the drive....

The snow didn't last very long at all.  Here's that same pasture the cow was in when I came home.

And our drive...

Now we're just back to mud.  Y'all know how much I love it!  Tomorrow's suppose to be warm and pretty.  Then rain again on Sunday.  I don't think we'll ever dry out.  But at least we got a change of pace with the frozen stuff.

Just started snowing here on the coast of NC. We don't see much snow either which is fine with me. When I hear snow all I picture is muddy slosh because that's what we are left with. Someone ask if I'd started prepping my garden yet, I informed them it's been under water for 3 months.

Wooo Doggies! SNOW! Well, maybe not a lot of it, but here in parts of Oz, we've been baking like Chirstmas turkeys, with temps of 105+! So I'm willing to even call the damn frost in the freezer "snow"! That skiff of snow you got, sure looks good to me!

Well it was pretty while it lasted, LOL! ;) Sorry it left some mud left to deal with.
I can't imagine growing up never seeing snow! Kinda of sad. We don't see a lot, but I've had plenty of snow days.

Unhhh.. barely enough to make a snowman and we wouldn't be able to get a snowmobile out... But lots of "fun" when you don't see it very often!

Your snow was truly lovely on the ground while it lasted. We still have quite a bit and it too will be mud before all is said and done.

Thanks for sharing your photos with us.

I think it would be pretty neat to see snow in Texas! (even if it's only just a smudgen). Sorry it causes such grief on the your roads... I pray you stay safe and sound and spring will dry up all that mud.

LadyFi said...

Definitely not snow! But very pretty indeed!

Dee said...

Isn't it funny how people get so excited over a few flakes. LOL Sorry you now have to wade the mud.

Goodwife said...

That made for some pretty pictures! I love the dusting over the green grass. That's a good snow for fertilizer if anybody could have got it disked under......of course I'm sure it's too wet to get into any kind of fields. I feel for ya with the mud, I hate it too! :) Ps.........any new babies yet?

Shirley said...

Makes a nice change for you, but then comes the mud.... we have mud here too, snow only at the higher elevation. My husband saw the first robins yesterday, a sure sign of spring just around the corner.

Kellys said...

No,the sun is NOT out today to warm things up!! Yuck!! When will this ever end? Stinkin' groundhog!!! But we could be in the East where they are still trying to dig out of the snowstorms.....rather deal with our standing water.....

Andrea said...

That is a lot, for Texas!!!! Cool!!! I would take frozen over mud any day!!!! I am so sick of the mud!!! We need some sunshine for a month to dry up all our water!!!!

I'm not laughing;) You know in Maine we only have 3 seasons. Summer, Fall, Winter. We don't have spring, we have MUD SEASON. When the frost is 3 feet down in the ground and starts to thaw....it's some hard core mud. I'm like you, hate it.

theegggather said...

I'm in Ohio and we have about 12 inches on the ground now and expecting 5-8 more beginning tomorrow. I don't even want to think about mud. If we could go from the snow to green grass I'd be in heavan.

Lil Mama said...

LoL thats like CA snow.

I was visiting my family in Ft. Worth and we woke up to snow Thursday and it snowed all day into the night. At my blog are photos that my baby Bro and I took after midnight... walking around like nuts taking shots. He even got out his tripod to set up some timed photos. There was no wind and the snow was beautiful. We ended up with between 9 and 10 inches at their home. I think it was a record in Ft. Worth.

Congrats on the new baby bull. Here's hope that he bucks as tough as he is handsome!!!

Homestay Mama said...

Well, you got more snow than we did this winter! :-D

It is unusually warm here this year and my crocus are already up! But we've had snow as late as April not too many years ago, so I'm not putting my winter clothes away just yet!

That's not snow - that's a dusting. We've got over 3 feet on the ground right now.
