But what a treat the snow was! It started out spitting sleet and ice then gradually it turned into big, fluffy soft snowflakes.
In case you aren't a local; we don't get snow here (south Texas near the Gulf Coast). I can count on one hand the number of times it has snowed in this area in my lifetime. Let's see; 6th Grade - 1973, 2004 and 2008. Maybe there's another time I'm not remembering, but you can see how hard it would be to forget, considering the novelty.
There was a happy face there before I took the picture. Beck hates having his photo taken.
What I love about falling snow is how quiet it makes everything sound. It's a natural muffler, if you will. (That doesn't sound very poetic, does it!) I love how peaceful it makes the world seem while it is falling. And the air of excitement when it falls in this area is really special.
