Ah, Hell!...

-
Yesterday, Friday, Dec 4, 2009, SNOW paid one of its' rare visits to Houston.



The motion and reflectivity make them look larger, but they were big wet flakes, a bit over postage-stamp size, that melted as soon as they hit the ground.  This was about 10:30 AM, and the temp didn't get below freezing until late in the afternoon, by which time the snow  had stopped falling in my part of town.

I so much wanted to grab the camera and go out a bit southwest of town, where there was more activity (up to 4 inches in some places), but was intercepted by a call to come into work early.  By the time I got off, it was freezing, but the snowfall was all over where I was.

So, no opportunity for winter-wonderland shots this time.

However...

Snow is a very rare occurrence here.  Dec 4 is the earliest time on record for it to show up.  Also, we got visited last year.  This is the first ever recorded instance of it happening two years in a row.  And, winter is still over two weeks away.

Could get interesting.

Hello Paul. Didn't realize you had started a blog. Will blogroll you and start my daily visits.

As to your post, we still have snow on the ground in Tennessee also. Makes me want to hunt down a greenie and shake them until sense starts to make its way past the ideological cement in their brain housing unit.
