Snow in my own back yard

Last Thursday when it snowed, I snapped this photo. The day before it was 80 degrees F, and you can see lots of the flowers were still blooming. By the way, I haven't tended my garden in ages, so it's a bit overgrown and you can see some leaves that have fallen into the pool...

It is such a trip that it snowed in Dallas! I bet everyone FREAKED OUT! Here in Atlanta (where we have all four seasons unlike Dallas) people freak when it snows the one time each winter! It doesn't matter that it never stays beyond 24 hours....they act as if the city is snowed in! It's so funny!

Pool, leaves, lumberjack - solves that little problem. I just had 2 huge decorative pear trees removed for that reason. I got tired of scooping leaves out of the pool.

And you were doing your laps while it snowed?

How often do you see snow in Dallas, every twenty years or so?

susan - we get more snow than you might imagine - probably once or twice a year a snow that melts immediately upon hitting the warmer-than-freezing ground. We get probably at least 3 hard freezes with no snow (sometimes with sleet or freezing rain) a year, I'd estimate, and we probably have a good blanket of snow every 4-6 years, and that blanket will usually last a few days. We had the most amazing snow for New Year's 2000/2001, so we're due for another good one.

myron - alas - the trees are over on the neighbors' sides of the fences! *L* Besides, I like dirty pool!

meg - well, I'm not THAT hardy a gal!

curly - see my response to susan in Atlanta - we get a good blanket of snow every 5 or 6 years, and we usually see some flakes at least once a year, but the ground is usually too warm for them to last.
