So, I think I’m in love. With Texas.
Tonight, as I came out of my last piano lesson, the casual and scattered flurries of snow that had been happening all evening had evolved into a full on snowstorm. It was absolutely GORGEOUS. I was out in the rural areas of Southlake, right near Fort Worth where the majority of my lessons are. This is a really pretty area, as there are lots and lots of trees, hills, and a huge recreational lake. Most of the homes are sitting on at least a few acres surrounded by farms.
Normally it’s very green, but tonight…tonight it was covered with a white blanket. Snow was clinging to all of the tree branches, barns, bushes and fences. It seriously looked like something out of a Thomas Kinkade painting! The best part was that it was just barely 30 degrees, not even very cold!
This meant that the snow was only sticking to grass, roofs and trees, NOT even the road! Perfect– pretty snow without any of the danger! Besides the lessened visibility due to the snowflakes pelting my windshield, it was about as bad as driving in the rain. There wasn’t even any ice!
So, it’s official- I love snow. As long as it doesn’t interfere with my ability to drive:) Until then, I am in love with Texas!!!
Here is a picture of me and my 8 year old student, Blake. I asked his dad to take a picture of us in their pretty front yard.
More snow….and more snow!!!
Dallas Snow Days!
