Feels Like Home

The unbelievable happened today. It SNOWED! In Texas!
A cold front moved in last night and this morning it actually felt like the winter we are used to. By afternoon the flakes appeared. We started screaming from the excitement. I sat in my car and looked around at the snow, and felt a piece of my Utah home.

Snow is a phenomenon here. The last time it snowed (for an hour) was 4 years ago. As we drove down the street, kids were waving their hands out the windows trying to touch it. As we pulled up to Sam's school, teachers had let their students outside to run in it. Pure magic.

If you squint your eyes, you can see our Texas snowflakes:

Soaking in the magic moment:
Don't worry about us freezing in Texas. It will be back up to 70 degrees by the weekend!

I remember it snowing when I was stationed in Ft Hood. I couldn't believe it. I had to go out and buy a coat and gloves. It was crazy! Congratulations!
