Winter Storm in South Texas!!!
I'm visiting my folks in my little bitty home town in South Texas which is about seventy miles southeast of San Antonio. Last night, the local forecast predicted that we were due for one-to-three inches of snow -- something that seldom occurs here in this part of the country.
Last night, the local news kept interrupting regular programming with Storm Tracker! alerts. School closings were announced. Highways were closed. It was all very exciting.
About 11 pm, I took a look outside and noticed a thin film of snow dusting our cars. The Storm Tracker! warnings were about to come to fruition!
This morning, I looked outside. Here are a couple of photos of what a winter storm looks like in South Texas:
There was a mockingbird singing merrily away.
And yes, the schools are closed today.
