I bet you guys don't have any snow plows ready to clean up this stuff, either! It looks like everyone is out and about enjoying it while it lasts, eh?

My Mom lives in South Texas, which has one recorded snowfall in history - until a couple of years ago, when it snowed on Christmas Eve. She said that it looked very nice - for about 30 minutes. Just as the kids were coming out to frolic around - it turned to slush then melted away by mid afternoon. :)

Thanks for the pics, MadRookie!

Wow, that looks really cool, with the snow and palm trees in contrast. There have been a lot of weird cold weather events in the past few years. Right now, Alaska is seeing crazy record heat. Thanks for the pics, MadRookie!
