1/17/13 - Snow, Again?!?

I couldn’t sleep Tuesday; no particular reason, just couldn’t.  Which in turn also made the furbabies restless.  Which in turn meant that I took them outside for one last potty break around 1:00 a.m.  So, when I put my coat on just a few hours later at 6:00 a.m. to take them for our morning walk, which is our routine prior to me leaving for work, I was shocked to see snow!  Where did that come from?

The picture above is of my neighbor’s, Roberta and Suzy, scraping their windows.  You can see I have Betsy half done, but stopped to take the pic.  Maybe next time I can’t sleep I should check the weather.  Duh, ya think Deb?  LOL.

This next picture is what we saw when we first stepped out of the apartment.  You should have seen Nonni throw on the breaks when she touched that foreign substance!  Bentley wanted to roll in it.  Sorry no pics of all that.  I had to get to work.

We may go several years without seeing snow in this part of Texas, and yet we’ve had snow this season twice in 3 weeks.

It also snowed Christmas Day.  We had a White Christmas!  Here are pictures from that day - very similar to the ones above.

I wonder what the record is for most snow days in one winter season for DFW….. hmmm….. inquiring mind(s) want to know.  Wouldn’t it be something if we set the record this year?

I would share more Christmas pictures with you but I don't have any.  I was home with the flu!


  1. i tried google to get your answer and so much stuff came up i gave it up.... just glad it is your snow and not mine... yikes on scraping windows. i was so glad to get away from ice on my windows and i was in Savannah GA we only got ice on the windows 3 or 4 times a year... i am lazy and scraping ice is not my thing.... sorry you were ill at Christmas.

  2. I hate that when I wake up in the morning and see unexpected snow. Of course it's usually a whole lot more here but still.
