A rare snowstorm arrived in the morning and covered the area with a few inches of fluffy white powder. It was amazing! The photo above is the view from our bedroom window. What a way to wake up. 😊

I went for a couple of walks and bicycle rides around the neighborhood to look at the snowmen and I saw plenty of snowball fights. It was so fun!

Mariko made this little snowman on our deck using some peppers and sunflower seeds:

Towards the end of the day I hopped on my bicycle again to take some photos of the neighborhood snowmen. There were some pretty good ones. Take a look! ⛄

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Well, the cold weather continued today, but I wasn’t expecting to get any snow. ❄️ It was just 81° F the other day, for goodness sakes! But snow it did, and it was actually pretty fun. When I went to pick up Koa from school at 5:30 pm, there were only a few snowflakes falling, but on the way to get dinner, the snow was coming down a lot harder.

Obviously, this being Texas, the snow is not as serious as up north, however, it was a bit more challenging to drive in since we’re not used to all these particles floating down. 🌨️

Lani also seemed to enjoy the weather. 🐕 As you can see in the top photo, the snow didn’t slow her down at all. She’s leaping over the stairs like she always does… full speed!

Lastly, I couldn’t resist getting a photo of my Subaru with a light dusting of snow on her. 😁 Cool huh!
