Snow Day in Texas
Snow Day In Humble
Snow days in Texas are few and far between. We vividly recall the few days when snow stayed on the ground for more than a few days. Usually we can count the times the snow stays on the ground on one hand. Today was such a day. It started snowing around six o'clock in the morning with a few flurries and and by noon the ground was covered.
It was not long before the kids were throwing snowballs and making snow men. This is rare fun for those of us in the sunny south.
Fun in The Snow
Texas Snow Through The Years
Although I cannot remember the day I was born in February 1951 my mother tells me that there was snow and ice on the ground as she went downtown to the hospital not once but twice to give birth on that cold winter night!.
I do remember the snow in 1971 that stayed on the ground and was about six inches deep for a whole day! It did not last long. My young son loved it!
December 1989 was a sad year because my brother was killed before Christmas, and we had snow on the ground for his funeral for three days.To me the snow that year was a gift from God. The extreme cold blanketed the earth and seemed totally appropriate for the sadness we felt.
Today we had snow that lasted for about eight hours which is really unusual and gave everyone a lot of pleasure. Of course we know that in the north the snow is not a source of fun but something that can really be a danger to the lives of people. And yet, it is a treat and something we never forget.
