Snow foolin'

Much of East Texas is virtually immobilized by a snow storm that dumped about 4" or more of the white stuff on us overnight. Schools and businesses are closed, and many folks are without power today. You folks up north will no doubt be unimpressed by these photos taken in and around our yard early this morning, but realize this sort of thing hardly ever happens down here. We get snow maybe once every other year or so, and even that is usually a light dusting that melts as soon as it hits the ground. To get this sort of accumulation is very, very rare -- and in fact this is the most snowfall I've seen in my nearly 30 years of living in Texas.
