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.

It's actually funny that the Perry Homes lady told me how the construction crew called her a bulldog the entire process. I absolutely LOVED having a bulldog in my corner fighting for me. And that's exactly what I told her. I would definitely recommend her to anybody needing a realtor. Actually I already have. read less
