Its snowing outside my window in San Antonio as I type this, and I just came back inside from taking pictures of it (that you can check out here). This is only the second time I have had the pleasure of experiencing accumulated snow in my lifetime, and it is just as fascinating as the first: five inches in Corpus Christi, Texas back on Christmas Eve 2004.
To this snow-newbie, at least, everything about snow is fascinating. The sound it makes as it falls down, the crunch of your feet as you walk on the grass, the way it covers everything in white and the eerie quiet that seems to accompany it. I love it, and I hope I get to experience it again here in South Texas.
Yeah, sure, I could go somewhere north where it snows all the time, but to have snow in an area usually associated with boiling heat and hurricanes is just wonderful. I mean, think about it, right now the Alamo is probably covered in snow…isn’t that CRAZY?
I’m sleepy from staying up to see it, but I just don’t want to go to bed. I know that if I do, when I wake up the snow will be gone and it’ll be just a cold day here in San Antonio. Even then, it was fun while it was here.
