From Hurricane to....

SNOW!!?? And they say global warming is a myth.

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.

Webkinz Visit Sleepyhead

Chloe and I made this slide show one day when Spike was fast asleep. He didn't move a muscle as she placed her Webkinz, one after another, on top of him. Sorry it's a bit slow, it's the fastest I could get it to go. Enjoy!
