Snow and more snow

*Note: I tried to post this yesterday and I had trouble. So I'm just posting it now.

For Texas in March, we have had quite a bit of snow lately. Monday night it started snowing around 8pm. When I walked the dog at 8am there were still mounds of snow on cars and all in the grass - which is impressive considering that the sun was out and it was in the 40s.

Yesterday, Thursday, a winter storm blew through here. We heard on the radio that morning that there was 100% chance of rain and snow - which we laughed at because 100% sounds goofy. But sure enough, by 11am it was raining hard and not long after that it was sleeting. Then it started snowing and sleeting. The sidewalks at school got frozen and the flowerbeds were all white. Cars had a layer of ice on them. Then it would go back to raining, then sleeting, then get the picture.

When I got home at 5:30pm this is what our street looked like
And our "backyard"
There was a good layer of ice on stuff and it was cold, cold, cold.
By 11am the next day, Friday, the snow began to melt. But Friday was still a pretty cool day. By now you would not have known there was snow just two days ago.
