Rare Snowfall in West Texas



I grew up in a tropical country, but snow's not new to me. I've had my first taste of snowflake when I visited my friends in New York two years ago. My whole experience with snow was exciting and wonderful but I wouldn't trade it for my sun and fair weather (mostly) in the bay area. That's also why I sought the heat of Texas when I was offered a job here.

Imagine my surprise when they said it snows in West Texas. What? But it's near the desert? Well, the skeptic turned into a believer when I woke up today. It was snowing.

In West Texas... what a rare sight indeed.

When I learned that there would be a huge snowstorm all over the country and with some states expecting 26 inches of snow, I hushed my knee when it started to complain about the cold. Thank goodness it's just lightly snowing! Other people will have snow-related nightmares and my heart goes out to them.
