    Looks like we're going home early today. Some reports say we can expect as much as 5" of snow. No big deal for most folks - but here in Houston it is definitely a big deal. Sewing room here i come. Of course, I'll have to stop long enough to build a snowsomething :P

    I am so envious. We were expecting about an inch, which really would close down San Antonio because the last time we saw any snow was in 1985. But the latest reports this morning are that we MIGHT get a few flurries. Darn!

    We had about 2-3 inches yesterday, with a little wind. Fortunately , no big drifts anywhere, but the guys were able to get the corn out on my son's land. Clear and cold last night, sunshine today, but still cold...not warm enough so the snow sticks to build a snowsomething. ( I like that term!) We still have about 100+ acres of crop to take out. I'll be glad when we are done!

    Smiling in Houston, also. It rains awhile and it snows awhile. Don't think that there will be any snowmen, it is turning to water here as soon as it hits the ground. I did take a few pictures to document this strange event.

    Only rain here. I did have to put socks on. Very unusual. It was down to 55 today. My kids are frozen solid. Little punks want the heat on! Back to 80 degrees by Tuesday. Send a little snow my way? And a coat for the little ones?

    While I wouldn't mind a sew day....y'all are saying too,too many 4 letter words in these posts. Don't you know that snow is a 4 letter word, ice is a short one and sleet is a long one!!!

    Three almost steady days of rain! That's almost unheard of especially this time of year. This is the dry season.
    I'm about 1 1/2 hours southeast of you.
    No golf again today so I'm doing my farm blocks. No sewing just yet so getting the tedious stuff done on the blocks.

    I haven't seen snow since visiting northern virginia a couple of Christmases ago.

    This has been an unusual year weatherwise across the nation. Here in the midwest we've had one of the coolest summers on record...crops didn't mature in the timeline they should have and corn and soybeans were harvested later than usual because of the wet conditions.

    I didn't know it snowed in Houston either, especially 5". We got a few snow flurries yesterday, that was about it! I am ready for a snow day, I live in the country and told my boss, if the weather is bad I am not comin in to work! Last yr on Christmas Eve, we were to work 1/2 day, we had an ice storm, I tried going in to work about 30 miles, went off in a little ditch, damaged my car and still had to take a vacation day! Not doing that again! I learn pretty quickly,hard but quick! ***Let her snow*******************

    We might be getting a few flurries tomorrow. We don't get many snow days here. Not because there is no snow but because here in the midwest we just have to live with it. I want a snow day too.

    Agreed, the weather here in Il has to get bad to get a snow day! Usually tons of snow or high winds with snow. Ice will do it too! No fun if you got to get out in it!They are calling for 1-3" here
