I lived in Texas for 38 years and
NEVER NEVER NEVER have
I seen this much snow at once.
But this morning this is what we woke up to.
I keep hearing about the effects of Global Warming, but after this week in north Texas, I think I can qualify as a first-hand witness.
Everything was covered in white when I woke up...not just a sprinkling of powdered sugar, but more like God spilled the entire bowl of sugar on us when he was adding some to his morning coffee.
Because you know in Texas, we like to do things in extremes... the bigger the better.
This flower pot is about 18inches tall.
Last night we went to bed and it was 100% visible...this morning, here is all we can see.
The problem is that in Dallas, Texas folks don't own shovels or snow plows or heck, many don't even own snow boots (except for the ones that are more fashion statements than they are practical!). We don't have an infrastructure to help keep life going on as normal when 6-8 inches of snow covers our world..... We are not Colorado or Denmark. We are Texas.
If I did not have a flight scheduled for 4pm tomorrow, I would be rejoicing in how lovely and peaceful the world looks this morning. But instead I am praying for the other kind of global warming...the kind that melts this madness and gets me on that plane to Denmark tomorrow! :-)
