Didn't think it would happen, but it's actually snowing in Dallas. Maybe someone can post up a pic or two.

I doubt I can get a pic.

Doesn’t seem to be sticking.

Huge flakes though.

It’s probably not a good place to be. Most people, if they aren’t used to snow, don’t know how to drive on it.

The family that lives in Dallas/Fort Worth area are going nuts for the snow, the little kids especially.
Of course the family in the Denver area are getting slammed...I guess by the same storm front.
Now me on the other hand I like in Santa Barbara.....and well as always it is beautiful ;-)

If that’s in the Dallas area, that is a lot of snow.

Got about an inch and a half of the white stuff 180 miles west of you. 28 degrees N Wind at 21 so it’s not going anywhere. And I decided to grill outside for Christmas Dinner.

Got my wife to snap a pic of our back yard:

It's starting to stick and pile up. Weather service says the temps are supposed to keep dropping through the day, so we may see more. Too cool :-)

Cheater! That’s not Dallas! Your “fluffie” looks like fox, posed in the snow.

Is that this year’s snow? You got a lot more than we did.

That’s funny.

In the Hill Country, the wind hit about 11 but it’s still nice outside but the temperature is starting to drop and is supposed to be freezing this evening.

An hour or two west of Dallas and our wind chill tonight will be below 10 F. Wont be going out early in that weather. Do not have a coat that good.

My Dad just called and said it was snowing like crazy in Arlington and brother in Aledo said is was coming down pretty good there too. Here in AL we’re hoping we don’t get Christmas tornadoes. YIKES.

Oh nooze! It's snowing ladders, chairs and bikes!

Just windy down here in San Antonio...last 'ice' down here was last Feb. Enough to confuse and humble 4X4 trucks who lacked any experience driving.

Even where I am, many people drive like icy roads aren’t a factor. I usually beep my horn and wave, as I pass them by, while they are stuck in ditches. :)

Must have been a lot of prayers going up for a white Christmas. We weren't supposed to get anything but a little rain in the metroplex. Supposed to get down to 23F today.

If this keeps up, the kids will be out making snow angels later :-)

I think the lowest temperature I've experienced since living in DFW the past seven years was about 17F. Thank goodness I didn't have to stay out in it for more than a quick minute.

Stay warm!

What the heck are you doing with Barack Hussien Obama, Michelle Obama and Joe Biden in your back yard?
I thought the Obama's were in Hawaii for Christmas and poor Joe he must have got lost going home and ended up in your yard.

I bought an older snowmachine and trailer last month up here in Wasilla, Alaska.

last week we had a good 10 inches plus of snow and then we had days and days of high winds, blew it all away, now there is almost no snow cover and mostly dirt plus its warmed up above freezing.

last year we broke snowfall records, maybe if I buy something anti-snow like another motorcycle then maybe it will snow.

Well, it’s cute anyway. We got only about 4-5 inches on Thursday, and none since. It’s stayed though. I can just imagine all those folks in Dallas scrambling around in the snow, slippin’ and slidin’.

We lived in Houston for nearly 10 years and had one memorable snow — when the kids were heading back to college after Christmas break. My son actually had his ice scraper stolen out of his car in Waco when he stopped for the night to stay with his sister on his way back to Lubbock (where they actually used ice scrapers from time to time.)

We thought it was pretty funny: Waco, home of Baylor University and full of Bible believin’ Baptists actually had somebody who would steal an ice scraper from a poor traveler! How Christian is that?

Nothing else taken — just the ice scraper.

Dang, I wonder what area of town that pic is from? I’m in the north-west area of town, and we’re not getting anything like that!

It’s still coming down, though. Be interesting to see how much accumulates by day’s end.

I lived in the Houston Area for 20 years. I was always told that if God had intended Texans to ski he’d made cow sh** white!
