~HOUSTON ~EXPECTING 2 or 3" of SNOW !~ But that did not happen !

I decided we needed to bring these
roses and some buds in...before the
snow arrives.
We were suppose to be getting 2 to 3" " of the white stuff
here in Southeast Texas on Friday......imagine that ?
We did some grocery shopping yesterday, so
that's good.
We have lived here almost 12 years
..and we have never seen it snow
here...I will try to get some pic's.
It's not expected until afternoon.
But, as of this evening, we only had a dusting of snow.

Hello Rose,

Yes, it seems the deep south is gonna get some snow! It's always exciting to those I know that are on the Gulf Coast since they rarely see it...as of right now I've got a 50% chance for it tomorrow night and 80% chance on Saturday....so this will be my first snow in the our new location...I won't get down the ridge once the weather changes so I went grocery shopping today.

Plenty of hot cocoa and cookies...that will get you through just about anything, right?! :0)

Have a great day,
Steph

Yep Steph, HOT SOUP, cookies, International Delight Coffee and Cocoa..nope...don't forget the COOKIES...and we will make it.
FURNACE don't fail us NOW.
It actually will be fun, but I don't have any of my winter boots left having lived down here for so long now... I don't want to fall and break something..that's for sure.
I will have to send my husband out for the pictures, he has BOOTS.
We were going to go down to Galveston, Tx this evening..for the ( Charles) "Dickens on the Strand" Festival..and Victorian Homes tours...but that is NOT going to happen.
Galveston is still trying to recover financially from Hurricane IKE (from a year ago last September )...this is a real money maker for the city of Galverston each Christmas Season...it's too bad.

Marilyn, OH YES, when we lived up NORTH..they KNEW how to handle this type of weather..
NOT down here in the "Deep South"..that's for sure. No snowplows, no salt trucks, NADA!
It will be a MESS...!
WE are going NOWHERE today.
