Winter In Texas – Snow Today ( Momimhar posted on January 6th, 2017 )

Collecting snow for a snowball.

We got a bit of snow this afternoon around 1:00 P.M. here in North Texas.  My darling daughter kept telling me since this Tuesday about the possibility of snow because her teacher said so.  I checked the weather forecast and it was clear all week and the freezing days are Thursday to Saturday.  I found no chance of  snow or rain whatsoever.

We lit up the fireplace yesterday because it’s freezing.

But when I was entering Walmart store to buy a pair of mittens for K close to one o’clock this afternoon, I saw flurries falling from the sky.  I thought it won’t last long.  As soon as I got home, the flurries turned into snow.  So when my darling daughter arrived from school,  we put on our winter coats, winter boots, and mittens then went outside and play in the snow.

The water in the bird bath got frozen.

Throwing snow at me. 🙂

You know children are naturally curious individuals.  They always check on little things wherever they go, and whatever they do they will always ask  questions.  And we should be keen and ready to answer their inquiries.  One of the things that amazes them is snow.  What is snow made of? Why does it snow?  We know that snow is composed of snowflakes.  So K was checking the snow and saw snowflakes formation.  She said to me,

“Mommy, snowflakes have different shapes right?

“Yes,” I said.

Naturally formed snowflakes differ from one another through happenstance of formation. (Wikipedia.org)

She found two and pointed at them so I can see.  I won’t even see them immediately, those tiny little snowflakes on the plastic chair. 🙂

We had fun playing in the snow.  K’s most favorite thing was when she found two beautiful snowflakes.

Winter And Cold Weather Essentials ( Momimhar posted on March 6th, 2015 )

Snow on the porch and backyard.

I was the one who got excited about this snow storm that went on overnight last night.  I didn’t get to sleep until around three o’clock in the morning.  Isn’t that crazy? 🙂 Once in a while I opened the window blinds and looked outside to see how big the snow fall was and how much snow we’re getting. I also was glad I had contacted Style by Carden Exteriors Inc to keep my roof in tip top shape and I knew if the snow had damaged my house they had great storm damage defense to keep my home safe and secure.  In short, I was super excited that it was snowing. 🙂

When I woke up this morning, I quickly looked out the window and saw so much snow on the porch and backyard.  My dear husband already left for work when I got up.  He borrowed my car today because it has better front brakes.  It was so bright and quiet outside.  As usual, my darling daughter didn’t wake up until around eleven o’clock in the morning.

Here’s our snow girl. She’s bigger this time. 🙂

As soon as we finished eating brunch (breakfast/lunch meal), my daughter and I put on our winter coats and boots.  In cold weather like this, it is highly recommended to wear think winter clothing, cold weather accessories, and footwear like snow boots if you want to stay outdoors for an hour or so.  You would want to feel warm and comfortable while playing in the snow so you have to bundle up.

Winter storm in Texas 3-05-15

My daughter and I built a snowman.  Actually, she wanted to call it a snowgirl.  This time it’s a bigger one.  It was a wonderful time playing in the snow.  We got about 4 inches.  That’s a lot.

This last photo was taken a day over seven years ago.  It was two weeks after my arrival here in the US and it snowed in Texas.  That was my very first snow experience.  Yesterday’s snow storm was a day early seven years ago.  🙂
