All Atwitter in Houston

I have been receiving emails from friends all over Texas, but mostly in Houston, about the anticipation of snow there today and tonight! It's hilarious. I laughed out loud this morning. I had coffee cup in hand and decided to turn on the Weather Channel to see the weather. THERE in blazing color was Jim Cantore, THE weather man, standing in downtown Houston to broadcast from there! Good gosh, he's only there for a hurricane.
Isn't that hysterically funny? I think so.........

I know everyone, adults and kids alike, are excited about the prospect of snow today. This is beyond early - last year, without warning, it snowed on December 10th. I was there and was so surprised. I said it all in that blog, so click on the bar on the side for December 2008 and share all the funny stories of snow in Houston that I wrote then. There was a poignant snow. I wrote about that also.

So, "let it snow" is my motto today. As long as I'm in warm and sunny San Miguel. Anyone for sunbathing on the roof this afternoon? Next week we're supposed to have four days of temperatures in the 80's! YEAH

After seeing Steve's beautiful Melaque sunset it's hard to get excited about snow!

Yep, it has snowed here off and on since 10:00 this morning but nothing seems to be sticking around. We canceled our trip to Austin tomorrow as the freeways around here are predicted to be icy. It is supposed to clear off tomorrow afternoon and be perfect for Dicken's on the Strand in Galveston.

THere is a rumor of snow in Portland, as well. What is going on?

Steve - I think they call it global warming......Kay, I saw pictures. So beautiful from here. I agree Charles, I'll take the Melaque sunset any day over snow - I intend to do just that for the month of January! Bob, you're soooooo funny, ha.

Oh darn Dan - I forgot! I'll wave next time I'm up there sunbathing. But, I'm pretty sure you're gone - however there might be another curious person "on the hill". Ha.
