Snowy View From An Upstairs Window


Okay. It was only a light blanket and it barely lasted a day, but it's still pretty cool for a native Texan (pardon the pun.) We've had an unusual amount of the white stuff this year and us Texans are always fascinated by it. Saturday morning it was so cold the ducks in the canal were surprised to find the surface had actually frozen over. They were making sudden U-turns upon landing to keep from skidding across it. A few who didn't realize in time found themselves doing some figure skating moves deserving of 10s from every judge. Fortunately the freeze guard on our pool seems to be in excelent working order.

Enough about the weather! I didn't watch the Superbowl but I did catch half-time. I thought Purple Rain was very appropriate considering it was pouring down rain (oops...more weather talk...sorry). But what was that on the "artist formerly known as Prince's" head?

Look kind of peaceful. We have rain today and we have snow. But we also have little flowers sprouting in the yard. Spring is on the way.

I used to see ducks frozen to the pond's surface when we lived in Illinois. I don't miss it a bit. Yeah, I took pictures of the snow, too.

The day you posted this was the day I arrived in Winter Park, CO. I took pictures of the snow there, but somehow it's not the same, is it?

But on Christmas day of 2004 we had ONE FOOT of snow in Victoria, Texas, and everybody went berserk! You can bet I've got DOZENS AND DOZENS of pictures of THAT snow!

LOL! I too wondered about that thing on Prince's head - in fact I thought "How come Aunt Jemima's performing during the Super Bowl?"

Great view of your pool.

I hope you had a great Valentine's Day.

Here in the Heartland... we've had a blizzard that dumped 12-14 inches at my house. (We wished for a dusting!) ~ jb///
