Frosty the Cowboy

Snow Cowboy

A few days ago, 12 inches of snow fell here in north Texas. Dormant spores in our next door neighbor’s soil hatched a fleeting snow cowboy, a rare phenomenon, indeed. The chilly fellow was eager to party, however, and invited us all to a barbecue. His tiki torches, alas, failed to properly light.

Looking down the street, it was sheets of snow and pick-up trucks for as far as the eye could see.

Snowy Insight

Except, of course, in our driveway, where our little hybrid huddled beneath a heap of snow. Brr!

  1. psst! Happy birthday! :D

    Thanks, Scotto! :) !!!

  2. Such a cute snowman. That’s a lot of snow. We are having Spring 1 right now. Spring 2 will hopefully be right around the corner. Last year we went straight from winter to summer, so we were owed this extra spring.

      Last year’s winter up north was pretty intense, as I recall! I was living near Olympia at the time. We were housebound, in fact, for 10 days because of the snow at one point. Still, we had a lot of fun sledding with the kids and so forth.

      I know what you mean about Spring 1 and Spring 2 in the northwest, too. I have often planted things outside too early, only to see them zapped by a winter backlash.
