Yep, we're having a white Christmas in Texas. The only bad part was I had to drive in it. So many people here can't drive on dry roads and when it rains or snows it gets stupid. Rained early, then sleet then snow. All with 25 to 30 MPH winds. We decided to head for home earlier than we intended, and I sure am glad. Visibility dropped to about 50 yards in places with heavy blowing snow. Driving 30 on a 70 MPH road is just an unnatural act for me.
But we didn't end up in a ditch or the median like a lot of folks did and we didn't bend fenders like some we saw. Got blown into on coming traffic twice but managed to get out of the way in time. Like Bill Cosby said, "First you say it then you do it." I was about ready to before I could get back....

Hope everyone had a great safe Christmas!!!

These Texans didn't get out in it but it sure looked purty from the window. In fact, we never even went out doors. I didn't fix the fried corn that I had on the menu because the corn was in the freezer in the garage.

No white Christmas for us. We were sunny and 60s. I was in shorts and long sleeve polo all day. All things considered I would have preferred snow. I haven't had a white Christmas in forever.
