Well, it has happened again!
It is actually snowing in the big "H"...doesn't happen often this close to the coast, but it does happen. The kids are all out in the street in the neighborhood, running around hollering and carrying on, some of the parents are out standing in the yard, talking and drinking coffee or the beverage of choice and laughing at the kids. Many of these children haven't seen snow in Houston in their life time, so for them it's a special treat!
The roomies went outside to see what the commotion was all about. They like to play in the rain and seem to like it. But they have never seen snow...and can't seem to understand what all this stuff is that keeps falling from the sky! Both are looking up, shaking their heads as the flakes land on their ears and sticks to whiskers. Swatting at the falling flakes was amusing for a while, but suddenly it dawned on both of them that this stuff is cold!!
C.B., the smallest of the two roomies, just came running in, jumped up on a chair at the kitchen table, put his paws up on the edge of the table and started telling it me all about it at 90 miles an hour. His little blue eyes were as big as saucers, just like a 5 year old on Christmas morning...
After telling me what he wanted me to know, he jumped back down, ran to the door, and waited for me to let him back out! Brother Smoky was outside playing in the snow, and C.B. just couldn't stand being left out. Sometimes, these two are more fun to watch than just about anything.
I doubt if the snow will stick until morning, but for the kids' sake I hope they get to see it in the daylight! As for me, I'll put on another pot of coffee, kick back a bit, keep watching for the delivery guy to bring my new kerosene stove! Kinda like an early Christmas, ya know?
Well, my friend...how about a fresh cup? Just the thing to warm ya up!
