Yes, it does too count.

Houston, we have snow – all the way to Galveston’s coast. You could see it on the UTMB Galveston web cams.

Some areas north of here had sleet last night, but just as I decided to brave the winds in the backyard to cover 3 tropical plants that have hardly recovered from last winter, rain, sleet, then snow.

“Trace of snow shatters 40 year record”

“New record for early snow in Houston”

“Snow flurries spotted across SE Texas” (You can see the panhandle/Amarillo got much more)

The local huskies, malamutes, and Great Pyrenees are cavorting with glee – demonstrating to their owners that THIS is how life should be…not always sunglasses, flip-flops, and cooling margaritas.

Knew that big flock of ducks overhead late yesterday were up to something.

Never fear. Temps should be back in the 70F’s this weekend. The landscape is going to just give up and throw up their limbs in confusion.

Well the cool is calling the dog…again. The call of the wild

    I bet Molly is wishing it was as deep as her belly! Enjoy! We are predicted to have sleet/snow/something on Thursday. So not ready.

    A little something for everyone this week. Wish the rain and snow would hit northern CA to help with the fires.

    I remember seeing snow, I think it was in 1953 at Mt Buffalo in Victoria, 👿

    This morning on the radio they announced there was a 10% chance of snow, and my heart soared, because 10% is exactly like 100% in my heart/imagination. Sadly, no snow fell in these parts, but glad they made it somewhere in Texas to be enjoyed!

      Yes, yes! The ranch near Abilene didn’t get one flake – but the wind was about to blow cattle around.Stay warm! (and maybe the Snow Queen will visit another trip!)

    we probably had special huskies once… a trip to the snowy mountains ended with one pup who refused to leave the car, while the other one signed the snow and jumped back in the car…

      HA HA. Molly Malamute is like the little kid that takes so long to get into a snow suit: dances and begs to go out then runs around in the mud and sleet and wants in (actually wants us to come out and play more) then comes in – only to bounce up and down and beg to go out again. She spent a lot of time siting on the deck nose to the wind smiling. Today is sunny so she’ll be able to go out more. Lots of foot cleaning towels…
      Thanks for joining the joyful romp

    Always good to hear that Molly is smiling.
