When last I posted, my area of the metroplex (Dallas/Ft.Worth) was getting some solid snowfall. This phenomenon is a rarity--we average less than one snow day per year, and only 2 out of every 5 Marches does it fall here--so we generally acted like goofs and took pictures of almost anything with snow on it. We ended up with six inches! That's quite a lot for us.
The kids spent hours outside, and inside, and out and in, out and in...they could only stand so much hand freezing at once. But once their little paws defrosted, out they went again! I had my fun as well (see the message spelled out on the car).
And fun as all that was, it melted quickly. Here today, gone today.
But two days later, the impossible happened. It snowed again! Forecasters promised that the entire area would get up to 4 inches this time, including the previously left out eastern suburbs (where my family and friends mostly reside). Uh, not so much. Their hopes of pretty white stuff were washed away in the cold, bitter rain that fell all day. I hear it never changed over to anything frozen.
