2/7/10 – 2/13/10

We had snow again. It started during the night.

snow coming down against trees and a night sky

And continued on throughout the day.

When I woke up the next morning, the world was still blanketed in snow. Such a rare occurrence in Texas.

The branches on our trees were so heavy with snow they formed this little enclave. I felt like I was in Narnia. Where’s Mr. Tumnus?

And Eric and I went out to take photos of the snow later in the day. We walked around the park behind our house.

It was so hushed and quiet. It’s one of the things I love about winter.

And Eric made me a snowball.

Kids in Texas do not have sleds. So these were making due with pool floats, inner tubes, a laundry basket and even the cardboard box from a 24 count of beer.

Such a beautiful day. And it was even better because of the walk with my husband.
