Efurrybody is talking about getting snowed on, so we thought we would share our big snow adventure from a couple of weeks ago.  Here goes -


Can you SEE it?

How about now?

Here ya go! Big fat flakes!

. . . that melted before they hit the ground!

Big snowstorm, right?  We're kinda missing the snow we had on our road trip this past spring.  Heck, Montana has more snow in JUNE that we see ever see here ALL YEAR!  Um, Mom says SHE doesn't miss it at ALL and is ready for a road trip to the Caribbean.  We say - LET'S GO!  We can swim better than we can ski anyway.

It does get cold enough here to freeze some our tropical plants like our banana trees, hibiscus and lantana.  Here's Dad cutting everything down.


Cooper is not happy that his favorite peeing bush is being cut down.

Poor banana tree :( 
See snow pic above for our nearly nekkid yard.

Um, which way to the Caribbean???

I dont get snow ever, but when it gets cold Ma has to bring in the orchids or they would die. The palms in our back yard look a little 'ill' at the moment too.

Our poor plants have taken a beating the last few nights too. Low of 29...that's COLD for San Antonio!

Well, we are seeing plenty and it's very cold! Jack has to wear a sweatshirt, but Jill doesn't mind the snow, she loves it. They both come in with cold ears and wet feet, poor kids!

I saw it! I saw it! And you know...that's about as much snow as we've had all year here in Collie-rado, too. I wish we'd get a BIG storm so that my mom could get a snow day and stay home and cuddle with me. But I'm not getting my hopes up.
