Snow in East Texas

Post by AJ01 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 7:02 pm

OKAY...I know a lot of you guys live in the "Great White North", but us poor folks who live in the South don't get much snow. It's probably been 7-8 years since it last snowed. But...2 days ago, we got snow!! :wtf:
This is the view out my back door.

Today was almost 50. Most has already left. But my grandkids loved it while it was here. :lol:

AJ, that's a beautiful way to look at it. I take the few snows we now get annually for granted. Nothing like the snow stuck to the trees, really is a bright sight indeed.

We were joking the a week or two before Christmas that the first snow fall is so beautiful, in the trees, coating the branches. 1 week later you wake up and yell out the window. " F*#@ OFF" !!

Chris you sound like you could be from East Texas!! :lol: :lol:

My son-in-law that only lives like 7 miles from me has been without electricity now for 4 days. Generators (mine) have kept his freezers running so all the deer meat and other stuff doesn't ruin. He's about ready to pull someone's head off!! :lol:

He called me yesterday..."Whatch ya doing?" My reply..."I'm sitting in a tree stand hunting hogs" :wink:
For some reason he hung up on me!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Had a buddy who has since passed away that lived in Boone, Iowa. I use to go up there every other year to bow hunt, and then the years in between, he'd come down here and hunt.
Seems like every year I was there it snowed!! It was pretty unique back then for a guy from Texas to hunt in the snow. I looked forward to the experience. Of course I was in my late 20's, early 30's at the time. Not in my 60's like now!! :lol: :lol:

Today I am sure I just might view that a little differently.. :lol:
