On average it only snows in Spring Texas every 4 years that means anytime we do get snow it is a BIG deal. Even an outside chance of snow becomes front page news in the Houston Chronicle newspaper.
Today our weatherman’s predictions of snow came true and with it a record was broken. December 4th, 2009 will now be recorded as the earliest date on which snowfall occurred in Spring Texas.
All afternoon we were treated to a beautiful scene of snowfall. At times it was just a few flurries dancing around in the wind and at other times it was so heavy that it reminded me of the many winters I lived through in Illinois.
This evening the snowfall has stopped. The streets and sidewalks are wet but other than a few remaining snow flakes there is no accumulation. There is not enough snow to build a fort or have a snow ball fight nor is there enough snow to make a snowman or a snow angel and for many people in Spring Texas I am sure it is a disappointment. But not for me. I experienced too many cold and blistery winters growing up in the Midwest and I don’t want to experience any more.
Tomorrow the weather forecast is for a high of 51 degrees, sunshine, and no snow. Now that’s the kind of winter I like and if it nevers snows again in Spring Texas that will be just fine with me.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all. Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result. I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
