Texas November Snow

Our Street, in February 2010. "Snowpocalypse"
It snowed last night. In mid November. In North Texas. No, the photo above wasn't last night's snow, though it shows how it can snow on our street way down here. Rather, our latest frozen precipitation is shown below. The photo below shows our current snow dusting, along with a Fergus that seems to have gotten MUCH larger than HERE virtually overnight. I expect that the snow will all be melted by this afternoon, but November snow in Texas should not fall without comment, even if there wasn't enough to make a pretense of cross-country skiing. Perhaps on November 22nd, we'll break the old snowfall record of five inches, set back in 1937. Unlikely, but we shall see...

Hey, me too! More snow than that (maybe 2 inches) but now we're first-snow brothers! Put it up high, man! Snow! Woot woot! Unlike your Texan snow, our forecast tells me my snow may hang around for a bit, and be added to.

Note on Texas v London ON snow timing: It is a bummer, but not totally unusual, for us to have snow for Halloween.

We had snow last Thursday night/Friday morning. I didn't realize there was a first snow thing going on. It was not enough to create really nice light effects along my commute, so I did nothing with the videos and said nothing about it.

Love Fergus! Great looking, snow-detecting dogo.
It is supposed to be might cold here tomorrow.
Peace :)

About 6" on the ground here in Ohio. Winter is underway.

But it is barely mid November.

I'm going to show this to all the folks who are complaining about the weather we're having up this way. Yeah, it was -5C (24F) this morning. But the thin crescent moon faded into bright sunshine.

It is back to being sunny down here as well, and it finally got above freezing this morning. Snow in North Texas is less common than ice.
