It rarely snows here in Louisiana. Two days ago, it was fairly warm and my daughter said that she wished it would snow. She had watched Frozen a couple of weeks ago, so she was hoping to make a snowman. I tried to explain that it might be years before she gets to see snow. Wrong. Just two days! What do fathers know? (Not much, apparently.)
Seeing snow on palm trees and magnolias is a strange sight. I also finally got to see what the weather app on my phone looks like when it snows. Rain is pretty cool: It shows droplets; initially, one rolls down the screen. Snow has a great start on the app: At first, you see some pretty snowflakes on the screen, but, unfortunately, the screen then clears up except for a narrow strip of snow at the bottom.
As my cousin sent me a text this morning from Texas, this is just wrong! Of course in Indiana we are in the negative numbers with wind chills in the negative double digits and more snow this weekend 😦
Brrrrr. You have everything but the penguins.
Penguins on their way as requested LOL 😀
Everything is better with penguins. And apes. 🙂
Haha. I saw someone had a penguin. A snow penguin.
I am so happy she got her wish! Even if for a short time only. Huge smiles
Now she has learned the valuable lesson of how hard life is… Just wish for it. 🙂
Grinning at you!
Smiles and snow two days in a row. Great week. 🙂
That’s an awesome week!
Just ice in Houston, bummer. She’s so lucky! All children deserve a bit of snow. Cool!!
We had the ice a few weeks ago. I’ll take the snow. Now we have to go out and make a snowman. 🙂
Don’t forget the carrot! 😀
i miss it 😦
I could send you some… 🙂
When we first moved to Canada the white Christmas was a treat! Now we are used to lots of snow from October on wards until about April – this varies year upon year. Life goes on as everything is set up for snow and low temperatures. The logistics of life is made easier by snow plows, plug-ins to keep the engine blocks warm and inside shopping malls. In Alberta we have dry air so even at -20 or so it is brisk but not bone chilling. In England -5 seemed exceptionally cold because of the damp air.
Enjoy your snow and make that snowman!
I spent 10 months in Pennsylvania. They said it was the most snow they had had in decades. Probably not as much as Canada, but more than enough for me. Pictures of Canada look wonderful on t.v.; fortunately, the chill doesn’t seep in through the screen. 🙂
All too true – the cold can be challenging to say the least.
