A nice sunny day. I am sure we will get some more unpleasant winter weather, but not so bad while it lasts...

Texas Snowfall

It snows in Texas sometimes.
Dad and Mom got up before dawn to watch the first snow in their new house. Once the 'rosy fingers of dawn' came in from the east, Dad took pictures to capture a fleeting moment:


The wild oaks through the living room windows;


With the pink of dawn still slightly visible, Dad trekked out to the road (his footprints are at the left) and captured Two Trees in an unexpectedly serene view;


A closer picture of the larger wild oak;


and from the other side, snow on its multiple trunks, showing why these trees are so appreciated in Texas.

The snow had melted by mid-morning, but the parents enjoyed while it lasted a reminder of the weather they left behind when they moved from the northeast. Perhaps they will get homesick enough to come visit us up here soon…
