I’ve long ago stopped believing in weather forecasters, just like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. A form of nightly entertainment, foretelling the weather in Central Texas must be harder than hitting .300 in baseball – most of the time you strike out. So I didn’t really believe we’d get 1″-2″ of snow…I thought we might perhaps get a few snow pellets. I shoulda believed ’em this time!
I love the purple hyacinth in the snow, and as I look around, we ARE getting almost 2″ of snow!
With really big fat flakes, too!
My deck is covered with snow and very slick to walk on.
And the agave seems to be hanging on to it just for the fun of it, like the rest of us.
In the past 6 months in Central Texas, we’ve had record setting high temperatures, record setting extended drought, 8″ of rain overnight to break the 25 month drought, record setting freezing temperatures, and now record setting snow! What’s next? I’m afraid to wonder…whatever plants we have left in our gardens should win awards, don’t you think?
