Snow in Abilene, Texas

Well the weatherman promised snow and snow we had.  We woke up to a world of white.  Our porte-bote was hidden by snow.  We got at least 4-5 inches.  We had decided to put the slides in so the snow would not collect on the awnings over the slides.  Were sure glad we did so as those around us who did not woke up to find their awnings sagging under the weight of snow.  Temps at night have been in the upper 20s and low 30s.  However, we are enjoying visiting with Laura, Floyd and Stephanie.  Got our blood work done and are looking forward to some better weather for the next 2 weeks.

isn't Texas a little too south to have snow?
