To understand why this is so exciting you must remember that we are in Texas! The weather people say we have about 7" on the ground with more on the way. Now, it isn't really all that unusual for this part of North Texas to have one or two measurable snowfalls each winter. What is unusual is the amount and the fact that it will be on the ground for more than 24 hours! It's so pretty, but I must admit a little odd to see palm trees so loaded.
