We don’t get snow every year in North Texas and even more rarely in the beginning of December but, we did this year. We only got about a quarter of an inch of snow and it all but disappeared before noon.
Whereas the natural world up north had been bracing for the winter for a few weeks already, the people, plants and animals in the lower latitudes tend to get caught off-guard with Mother Nature’s surprises like this. The kids love it. My daughter was no exception. She took the opportunity to jump on the snowy trampoline and tried to catch snowflakes on her tongue.
