North Texas: Winter Wonderland

No recipe today. Just wanted to share, in case you haven’t heard, the Dallas area received about a foot of snow between yesterday and today. This is more snow than I’ve ever seen here. (I’ve lived here my whole life) I know, for those of you in northern climates (especially on the East coast!), this is a regular occurrence. For Texans, it’s an incredible sight to see. It won’t last for long, and I may be a grandmother before it snows like this again, so I might as well capture memories as I can! Enjoy.

  1. I’m jealous! I’m too far south! We only got a little bit of sleet last night! :-(

    My grandmother is the DFW area and she said this is the most snow that she’s seen her whole life! :-) I think its a record isn’t it for Dallas? Craziness!

  2. beautiful photographs!

  3. I have a friend that works in Richardson and sent me a picture of the snow from her office window. I was shocked! Your pictures are beautiful by the way :)

  4. absolutely beautiful pictures that make you appreciate the beauty of life…very nice post :)

  5. Gorgeous snow pictures!

  6. I love the rosemary picture! These remind me of the days when I was excited to see snow :)

  7. Oh those pictures look like a winter wonderland greeting card!

  8. Oh what fun to experience snow through the eyes of those that never get any – ever. ENJOY it while it lasts and thank you for making me appreciate it! ~Mary

  9. It is amazing how much snow you guys have gotten! In Austin, we have just gotten rain!

  10. Enjoy your snow – and if you want some more, I’ve got about 5 feet you can have, lol!

  11. Wow a white winter. Lovely photos. Thank you for sharing.

  12. Alta, I did hear about it. That is wild about that much snow y’all received. I am getting used to 1 foot and 2 inches here in MI. Stay warm.

  13. Wow that is a lot of snow! So pretty, though

  14. Wonderful pics and a nice respite from the rest of my day. I got out and took some shots early and midday. Have been playing with them for the better part of the afternoon. Love snow pics and I agree – the rosemary pic is my favorite! Great job on all of the photos!

  15. Wow! That’s crazy for Texas! I’m from Massachusetts, but born in Austin. :)

  16. Your pictures are beautiful. I’m very used to snow, but never tire of the clean sparkle that a fresh coat of snow leaves.

  17. Gorgeous! I’ve been getting snow every day but none of it has really stuck, so we haven’t seen such a pretty winter yet – and I def. would have never imagined that kind of snow in TX!

  19. I’m sure the inhabitants of the areas where snow is a frequent occurrence won’t agree with me, but I love this, there’s something so magical about snow. And it’s even more especial when you’re not used to it. I envy you right now. Enjoy it!

  20. Wow! Your kids must be loving the snowfall. When we get a dump of snow like this, my kids are quite happy to be sledding every hour of the day (except the times when they’re drinking hot chocolate).

  21. Isn’t it fabulous? LOVE that it set a record!

  22. Beautiful pics. My boys are so jealous imagining all the snowball fights, snowmen and sledding you’re probably doing right now. They just don’t understand, though, that you can’t do those things in shorts and flip flops which they insist on wearing even in the coldest (Houston) weather. Stay warm!

  23. It looks like late October ;D. Its odd for me with this “snowmageddon” thing, as we can get a foot (or three) in a night. Regardless, I’m so glad you got to experience the snow! It is most definitely a beautiful thing.

  24. Beautiful shots, Alta! It’s so nice when it’s fresh and new. Now, it’ s not so pretty. LOL Maybe more this week. I was amazed when I heard on the NBC news that 49 states had measurable snow on the ground though. All except Hawaii.

    Bet the kids love it … enjoy!


  25. Beautiful. We never had that much snow when I lived there. Hail and ice storms, yes, but not a foot of snow. How fun! We got record snow fall in Virginia this year, too.

  26. What a beautiful sight! I love snow.. Hard to believe it snowed in Texas. Hope you get to enjoy the beauty of it :)

  27. Alta I love your snow pictures! It sure was fun while it lasted eh? I can’t believe we got over a foot of snow, I’ve never seen so much snow in Texas for the 17 years I’ve lived here. Beautiful post :)
