A White Christmas in Texas!

What does a East Texas girl do when it snows on Christmas Day?
 She grabs her camera and heads out in the rustic junk for a photo shoot! 
One time I remember a few snow flurries at Christmas time, but never this much snow on Christmas day. It rained and stormed most of the day, then all of a sudden, everything began to be covered in snow. (Scroll over the pictures to see the description.)
 The Christmas farm scene I shared yesterday was from our last snow, almost two years ago.
 Donna from Cottage Days said it best on Twitter "Snow on Christmas Day is magical."
 I've never been a big fan of snow - I don't like the cold or the mess or driving in snow. The only thing I like about it is taking pictures.
A snowy pine tree...When I first started taking pictures it hadn't been snowing for too long. I went back outside a few minutes before dark and the poor pine was very droopy. The lights have flickered a few times too. I'm sure hoping the power stays on tonight.
 One year we had a small live Christmas tree that I dug up out of the woods. After Christmas, I planted the cedar in the yard and today its covered in snow!

Its still hard to believe we had a White Christmas in Texas! As a farm girl, I am very appreciative for all the rain and moisture we received today (over 2 1/2 inches rain and we've got almost 3 inches of snow and it hasn't quit yet.) Our ponds and ground water are low, so its nice to see the precipitation.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We are hearing reports of tornado damage across the south and are thinking about all those who may have been in the storms path and hope they are safe tonight.

  1. Beautiful pictures! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

  2. How incredibly beautiful it all looks, covered with a soft blanket of snow! Thank you for the little plug, LOL. I am so envious that you got the gift of snow on Christmas! We've only experienced it once here in TN and that was sometime in the 1980s. Love your photos, sweetie. Hope you are staying warm, dry, and safe.

  3. Great photo's of the snow, Janice. I hope you didn't lose electricity though.

  4. I'm SO glad we didn't get the snow! Can't stand the stuff...
    It just rained here in Waco...
    Happy New Year sweet friend!
